In the 2016 presidential election, Donald Trump won 28 percent of the Hispanic vote, and many were shocked. His rhetoric during the campaign seemed to suggest that an overwhelming percentage of Hispanics would vote against him. But his percentage was greater than Mitt Romney's in 2012 (27 percent). This is an examination of Latino voters in the United States, and it provides potential reasons for Trump's performance in the exit polls with this group.
