President Obama Crushing Romney Among Hispanics in Swing States

“President Obama is crushing Mitt Romney among swing-state Hispanics, according to two new polls out from nonpartisan pollster Latino Decisions,” reports The Hill’s Cameron Joseph this morning.

“In Florida, where the Republican-leaning Cuban population bolsters Latino GOP support, Obama leads Romney by a 30-point margin, at 61 percent to 31. That’s double the 15-point edge he had with the state’s Hispanics four years ago, when he carried the demographic group by 57 percent to 42,” according to The Hill.

Also according to the poll, “Obama leads Romney by 78 to 17 percent with Nevada’s Hispanic voters, a huge gap that outpaces the 76-to-22 percent edge he had over Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) four years ago in the state.”

Just this week, Romney flipped on his position on deferred action policy.  Will disregarding the Hispanic vote be the biggest factor on November 6?
