NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - A new poll finds that Republican front-runner Donald Trump is widely unpopular among Hispanics.


Responses in the AP-GfK survey challenge the billionaire's oft-repeated assertion that he will win the Hispanic vote if he becomes his party's nominee.


The poll finds that many of the Republican presidential candidates would probably struggle to win significant Hispanic support in a general election, though most may have a chance to turn that around.


Of all the Republicans in the field Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio are the favorites among Hispanics. But the poll suggests even they are a hard sell.


Trump is viewed unfavorably by 72 percent of Hispanics polled, with 6 in 10 having a very unfavorable opinion of him. Only 11 percent view him favorably.
