Poll: 80 Percent Of Arizona Latinos Support Obama

President Barack Obama already claims a huge lead among Latino voters nationwide, but a new poll out Wednesday suggests his support among the group is even larger in Arizona.

The poll from Latino Decisions shows Obama earning the support of 80 percent of Latino voters in Arizona, compared with just 14 percent who intend to vote for Republican nominee Mitt Romney.  

In fact, Democrats across the board in the Grand Canyon State draw a big boost from Latinos.  Seven-five percent said they will vote for Democrat Richard Carmona in the state’s competitive U.S. Senate race, while only 12 percent said they will support Republican Rep. Jeff Flake.   Moreover, 66 percent of Arizona Latinos said they will vote for the Democratic candidate in their U.S. House race.
