    Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump - and the GOP as a whole - are deeply underwater with American Latinos, a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Telemundo survey shows.

    Nearly three in four Latinos say they have a negative view of Trump, with 67 percent saying their view is "very negative." Trump, who has called for mass deportation of undocumented immigrants and has derided opponent Jeb Bush for speaking Spanish at campaign events, gets a thumbs up from just 11 percent of Latinos.

    The Republican Party is viewed negatively by a plurality of Latinos as well. More than four in ten have a poor impression of the GOP, compared to 24 percent who view the party positively.
