GOP frontrunner Donald Trump won more than 50 percent of the Hispanic vote in New York City, according to exit polls.
Analysis of the New York Times’ vote tracker shows Trump won 61 percent in areas with at least a 50 percent Hispanic population.
“It’s an unexpected victory to many political pundits and establishment Republicans who were sure Mr. Trump would [repel] the Hispanic vote through his bombastic statements and immigration plan,” the Washington Times’ Kelly Riddell reports.
According to Riddell, in a poll taken prior to the New York primary, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Ohio Gov. John Kasich were favored over Trump by the Hispanic community.
