MSNBC's Katy Tur sure can pick 'em.

Last month she was reporting live outside a New Hampshire polling place discussing primary supporters of democratic socialist presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and approached her very first interview subject: "Sir, can you tell us who you voted for?"

Without hesitation, the man hilariously replied, "Donald John Trump."

What happened this time?

Tur was interviewing residents of East Los Angeles ahead of Super Tuesday and asked a Latino man who he and his family were supporting in the California primary — and through an interpreter he replied that he was voting for Sanders.

"Por qué Bernie Sanders?" Tur asked him.

"They didn't know, but they're going to be supporting him," the interpreter told Tur after the man answered.

Tur pressed the man: "Is it your daughter leading the charge [for Sanders]?"

During the man's answer in Spanish, the name "Donald" was distinctly audible — and with that the interpreter exclaimed, "Oh wow!" and laughed.

'Your daughter's going to vote for Donald Trump?'

Tur knew what was up and asked — with a slightly incredulous tone — "Your daughter's going to vote for Donald Trump?"

"Yeah," the man admitted.

"Por qué?" Tur inquired.

Turns out her choice is due to the strength of Trump's economy, the man replied through the interpreter, who later told Tur that Trump support in the Latino community isn't seen "too much, but it's fascinating." He added that there's still a "stubborn 10% to 15% of the population that continues to poll for Donald Trump."

He added that members of his own family are Trump supporters, and they work in law enforcement, which is a loyal Trump base of support.
