Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton edged out all major Republican presidential candidates in a MSNBC/Telemundo/Marist poll published Monday. The closest margin put Clinton three points above Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) and only one point ahead of political newcomer Ben Carson.

The poll, which had a Latino voter subsection, shows Clinton with a 11-point lead over the Republican frontrunner, real estate magnate Donald Trump. She led 52-41. Among Latino voters, Clinton led Trump by 42 points, 69-27.

Latinos and other minority voting blocs are seen as key pieces to winning the White House in 2016.

The poll was conducted among 2,360 registered voters from Nov. 15 to Dec. 2 with a margin of error of 2 percentage points. The poll surveyed 264 Latino voters with a margin of error of 6 percentage points.
