Poll: Obama Tops 70 Percent Support Among Latinos, While Romney Falls To 20 Percent

Source: TPM

President Barack Obama has eclipsed 70 percent support among Latino voters nationwide in the latest installment of a weekly tracking survey conducted by Latino Decisions.

The poll, conducted Oct. 12-18 and released on Monday, shows Obama earning the support of 71 percent while Mitt Romney trails distantly with 20 percent. Those results represent a shift in opposite directions for both candidates since last week's poll. Obama has ticked up 4 points since the previous Latino Decisions poll, while Romney has seen a 3-point dip.

The poll also shows a high level of engagement among Latino voters — crucial to an Obama campaign that is banking on a high voter turnout among its core supporters. Seventy-seven percent of Latino voters surveyed in Monday's poll said they talked with friends or family members about candidates or issues in the last few months.

"Despite President Barack Obama's campaign promises, Maria says making ends meet has been harder the past four years. While banks and car companies got bailouts, she says she saw cutbacks in the food stamp funding she receives as part of her disability benefits.

"If anything, we were penalized during these past years," she says.

Maria describes herself as a lifelong Democrat. But she says she doesn't trust Obama and no longer feels strongly about the party she once fervently supported.

"I feel let down. Our party wasn't there for us.""

Walter De Vries, who worked for the senior Mr. Romney throughout the 1960s, wrote that Mitt Romney’s bid for the White House was “a far cry from the kind of campaign and conduct, as a public servant, I saw during the seven years I worked in George Romney’s campaigns and served him as governor.”

“While it seems that Mitt would say and do anything to close a deal – or an election,” he wrote,“George Romney’s strength as a politician and public officeholder was his ability and determination to develop and hold consistent policy positions over his life.”

Mr. De Vries’s stinging assessment was contained in a nearly 700-word essay that he distributed to a small group of journalists with whom he has spoken over the past year. He said it was an outline for a book that may or may not be published. A spokeswoman for the Romney campaign declined to comment.

A registered independent, who said he voted for Barack Obama in 2008, Mr. De Vries has previously expressed reservations about Mr. Romney’s political postures in interviews, but never with such sweep.

In a telephone interview, he said he was motivated to write the essay by “an accumulation” of Mr. Romney’s actions, like his comment about 47 percent of Americans and his decision to campaign with Donald Trump.

Mr. De Vries said he was annoyed by Mr. Romney’s repeated references recently to his father as inspiration and influence on him.

“I just don’t see it,” he said.“Where is it? Is it on issues, no? On the way he campaigns? No.”

Mr. De Vries continued,“George would never have been seen with the likes of Sheldon Adelson or Donald Trump.”

(Mr. Adelson, a casino magnate, is a major donor to the “super PACs” that support Mr. Romney.)

Mr. De Vries, who said he wished to the see the Republican Party return to its moderate roots, said he intended to vote for Mr. Obama on Election Day.

The mandate that Mr Romney will have as "Not Barry Soereto" on 11/6/2102, will provide one of the greatest opportunities in 100 Years for the adults to undo and send to the trash heap of history, all of the accumulated diseases that have infested our Country, and corrupted our culture.

Barry single handedly destroyed "white guilt". This is why the polls seem so disjointed. Those remorseful Democrats that voted for the Black Guy will not deviate from their Politicaly Correct Posturing in Public, but watch what happens when they get in that polling booth and the curtain closes......Mr Romney WILL get 10-15% of the Democrat Vote, 40% of the Hispanic Vote, and 52 % of the Americam Women Vote.

Mr Romney....."DO NOT FUC"H THIS UP" as Republicans always have.

There are enough Legislators with Honor, that WILL not let the Criminal Acts in Libya, commited by the Political Operatives in Barry Soereto's White Hous, "pass by", like they allowed the Murders of Mexicans with Eric Holders Guns to pass.

Barry WILL be impeached in spite of the best efforts of the Media Arms of the DNC to down play the crimes.

It has been over a Month now, and Barry Soereto's Handlers still have not created the text he needs for his Teleprompter so that he can "address the nation" about the Tragedy.

Why?

Because it is nor a Tragedy to the Children that occupy Our White House.....it is a bump in the road!

You that are members of the fascist party should be ashamed of yourself.

How about the fact that you let the government pay for your health care while condemning government paid health care for anyone else, no matter how poor they are!

Yeah. A little "I got mine now nobody else should get theres"?

Presumably the other 29% are the ones who have jobs and businesses and came here legally and are a bit upset with all of the amnesty attempts including Obama's most recent one for millions of students who are here illegally.
