Barack Obama's 52-point lead in the new Latino Decisions tracking poll matches his widest advantage of the year:
Overall, Obama has the support of 73% of all Latino registered voters, compared to 21% who favor Romney. The 52-point gap matches the largest gap among Latinos this year, also found in the October 1 tracking poll.

Forty-five percent of Latino voters say they are more enthusiastic about voting in 2012 compared to 2008. That number is up from 37% from ten weeks ago when the initial impreMedia-Latino Decisions tracking poll was fielded. Furthermore, 87% of Latino voters say they are almost certain they will vote on November 6th, which includes 8% of Latino voters have already voted.

2. With a little time, they ought to mean a sea change in Texas and Florida.
Perhaps it won't happen this election, but the demographics trend a certain way and that means a wake-up call to FL and TX.
Anyone who goes into a negotiation without knowing who's on the other side is going in blindfolded. It doesn't make any sense. You should study the person on the other side of the table. - Richard Holbrooke

that a good chunk of that 21% for Romney consists of Cuban immigrants that are concentrated primarily in Florida. I would think that means our margins are even greater in swing states like Nevada and Colorado that have larger populations of Central American immigrants. This also bodes well for Carmona in Arizona...I would be giddy if we managed to flip Jon Kyle's seat blue. It comes doen to GOTV efforts...looking forward to doing my part next Tuesday.
