Poll: Romney Sees Minor Post-Convention Bump Among Latinos

A new tracking poll released Monday shows Mitt Romney receiving a marginal post-convention bump in support from Latino voters, even as President Barack Obama maintains his commanding advantage.

The latest survey from Latino Decisions — the second installment of what will be an 11-week tracking poll — shows Obama leading Romney with plenty of breathing room, 64 percent to 30 percent. While the president’s level of support is down 1 point from the first tracking poll a week ago, Romney’s share of the Latino vote is up 4 points from last week, when he polled at 26 percent.

The PollTracker Average shows Obama currently holding a massive edge among Latino voters, 60.9 percent to 30.8 percent, as Romney has struggled to make any dent in the president’s lead throughout the campaign.
