WATCH  | This is the year of the Latino vote and Hillary Clinton is totally owning it

Polls leading up to the election show Latinos favor Clinton more than Donald Trump.

Clinton won the Latino vote

According to polling and research firm Latino Decisions, 76% of Hispanics would vote for Clinton whereas 14% of voters would vote for Donald Trump.

Nationwide, this year's U.S. election could see a possible record number of Hispanic voters with 27.3 million eligible to cast ballots, according to CNN.

A large part of Clinton's success with Hispanic voters could be a result of her staunch efforts to register families relocating from Puerto Rico to Florida.

Immigration reform has been a key pillar of Clinton's campaign.

Trump has received a lot of criticism for how he's talked about the Latino community.

How did Trump lose the Latino vote?

Florida polls from August showed Trump losing the Hispanic vote by historic margins to Hillary Clinton after he made controversial comments about illegal immigrants, which many found offensive.

“One of the key storylines coming out of this election is likely to be that Donald Trump’s insulting Latinos as part of his strategy to mobilize angry white voters,” Frank Sharry, executive director of activist group America’s Voice told the Miami Herald. “But it backfired.”

Everyone from Jennifer Lopez to former Miss Universe Alicia Machado have endorsed Clinton.

"Desperate Housewives" star Eva Longoria is also a huge fan. 

Ricky Martin is another Clinton supporter.
