Battleground state Latinos reject Mitt Romney


by kos



Or, put another way, Latinos like President Barack Obama much, much more. And they're liking him better now that he's quit deporting their kids. (Florida trendline is from January.)































While we don't have trendlines from the non-Florida states, we do know that Latino enthusiasm has significantly spiked in the wake of Obama's DREAM decisions.

The survey also asked Latinos how enthusiastic they were about voting in the 2012 election, following similar questions that were asked in our November 2011 benchmark survey with Univision. In November 2011, 47% of Latinos were “very enthusiastic” about voting in the Presidential election. Today, 60% of Latino voters report they are very enthusiastic about voting in the November 2012 election and an additional 23% are somewhat enthusiastic. When asked to compare their interest and enthusiasm levels in the 2008 and 2012 election, more people now tell us they more enthusiastic about voting in 2012 than 2008, a shift from our previous polling.
As I've noted before, Romney and his Republicans are digging themselves into a deep hole in key battlegrounds by losing Latinos by such dramatic numbers. And no amount of cheesy web videos will change that dynamic.

    I'm Latino, and I do not support Obama's Dream act one bit.
    And I didn't vote for him the first time either.

    I'm also Latina and I don't want that act either, nice to meet a fellow Latino who thinks the same way :)

    Not sure about that.... Not saying that many feel that way, but there are a lot of Latino's that feel illegals are doing more harm than good.
