Poll: Obama got big share of Cuban American vote, won among other Hispanics in Florida

The president actually won the Cuban American vote on Election Day, though Romney got the majority of early votes and absentee ballots, according to exit polling.

President Obama nearly won the solidly Republican Cuban-American vote in Florida and rolled up huge margins with every other Hispanic group in the state, according to an exit poll performed by a firm that also worked for his campaign.

Obama actually won Cuban-Americans who voted on Election Day itself, taking 53 percent of their vote compared to 47 percent for Republican Mitt Romney, who built up a lead among those who cast absentee and early in-person ballots, according to the survey of 4,866 voters conducted by Bendixen & Amandi International.

Romney narrowly carried Cuban-Americans, 52-48 percent, which is a decrease for Republicans when compared to 2008.

“Obama is picking the Republican lock in Florida,” Fernand Amandi said, noting that Hispanics are Florida’s fastest-growing segment of the electorate.

1. This is really making them suffer on the right wing sites!

They have gone into full conspiracy mode and I hope that someday they can get over it!
