President Barack Obama’s already-lofty level of support among Latino voters has reached a new high, according to the latest weekly tracking poll from Latino Decisions released Monday.
The poll shows Obama earning the support of 73 percent of Latino voters, while Romney trails with the support of only 21 percent. It’s the first time Obama has exceeded 70 percent in the six weeks that Latino Decisions has conducted its tracking surveys. This week’s installment also shows that more than 70 percent of Latino voters trust Obama over Romney on issues related to the economy, women, the Middle East and Latin America.
Obama has held a massive lead among Latino voters throughout this campaign, according to the PollTracker Average, although he has not yet hit the 70 percent threshold.
