MSNBC Anchor Shocked to Learn Latino Voter Supports Trump

MSNBC anchor Katy Tur was shocked to learn that a Latino voter will be supporting Republican President Donald Trump in the November election.

Tur's surprise came during an interview with an East Los Angeles voter who told her through a translator that he was supporting Bernie Sanders. Tur asked whether the man's daughter was pushing him to support Sanders and was told that she was actually supporting Trump.

"Your daughter's going to vote for Donald Trump?" a surprised Tur said. "Por qué?"

"I don't know, she loves him," the man said in Spanish, further explaining that the strong economy is why his daughter supports Trump.

The translator joining Tur called the voter's response "fascinating" and told Tur that a "stubborn" 10 to 15 percent of the Latino vote supports Trump.

"I don't know what the exact reasons are, but there tends to be that certain conservative flank within the Latino community," the translator said. He also said that Latino law enforcement officers and Latinos concerned with the economy were the main base of conservative Latino support.

Recent polling has shown Trump with a stable 30 percent approval rating among Latino voters.
