She may face backlash from her supporters for speaking out on immigration while also criticizing President Donald Trump, as well as the media.
Clinton spoke out against Trump in a recent interview in which she expressed concern about the possibility of deportation for undocumented immigrants, even as she spoke out in support of undocumented immigrants in other countries.
“The only thing I’m really concerned about is deportation, that’s the only thing that worries me,” she said, according to the New York Times.
“If you look at the polls, we’re polling very well with Latinos and Asian Americans,” she continued.
“We’re doing well with Asian Americans and we’re doing very well in Hispanic and Latino households.
So I think that’s going to be an enormous challenge for her if she gets into office.”
Clinton has been criticized for speaking too loudly and frequently, but her words could be her biggest selling point to Hispanic and American-born voters.
Many Latinos and American voters view Clinton with a sense of mistrust and unease, according the NBC News/Survey Monkey poll conducted last week.
Trump’s campaign has taken note of the poll, saying the Republican nominee will likely face significant criticism from Hispanic and other immigrant communities for his rhetoric.
