The Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney continues to lose support among the Latino electorate in the United States, Latino Decisions said on Monday citing the results of its latest weekly political tracking poll.
According to the poll, only 20 percent of Hispanic voters are certain to vote for Romney, while 62 percent will definitely vote for incumbent President Barack Obama.
Two weeks ago, 23 percent of Hispanic voters were ready to vote for the ex-governor of Massachusetts and 56 percent – for Obama.
The latest poll is based on a new rolling cross-section of 300 completed interviews with Latino registered voters across all 50 states.
The trend registered by Latino Decisions is bad news for Romney and the Republican Party as Latinos make up 16.3 percent of the U.S. population, or 50 million people. Both candidates have made a tremendous effort to win popularity among the Hispanic community.
With about seven weeks left before Election Day, Obama, who has been nominated by Democrats to run for a second term in office, has a small lead over Romney nationwide, but enjoys a significant advantage in the electoral college.
Latino Decisions is the leader in Latino political opinion research. Its poll data and analysis are regularly cited by respected media outlets, including CNN and the Wall Street Journal.
