Battleground Latino poll: Obama over Romney 53-37 in Florida. [View all]
Barack Obama leads Mitt Romney 53-37 percent in Florida among Hispanic votes, according to a new poll from Latino Decisions (which produces great polls) and the liberal group America’s Voice. Error margin: 4.9%. Fifty percent said they were more enthusiastic about Obama since he announced he would ease deportations of young undocumented residents.
The 16-percentage point lead is where Obama needs to be, at least as measured by his win in Florida over John McCain in 2008, when Obama's Hispanic margin was 15 points.
