Latino Voters' Enthusiasm Up Again in Final Week

Posted: Oct 29, 2012


The latest impreMedia-Latino Decisions tracking poll shows that Latinos are more enthusiastic and more likely to vote than ten weeks ago when the initial poll was fielded. Forty-five percent of Latino voters say they are more enthusiastic about voting in 2012 compared to 2008. That number is up from 37 percent from 10 weeks ago when the initial impreMedia-Latino Decisions tracking poll was fielded. Furthermore, 87 percent of Latino voters say they are almost certain they will vote on Nov. 6, which includes 8 percent of Latino voters who have already voted. In 2008, 84 percent of Latino registered voters cast a ballot according to Census statistics.

But the poll shows that a sizable proportion of Latino voters think that on many issues it does not matter whether Obama or Romney is president, and that fighting in Congress is a larger systematic problem.

Overall, Obama has the support of 73 percent of all Latino registered voters, compared to 21 percent who favor Romney. The 52-point gap matches the largest gap among Latinos this year, also found in the Oct. 1 tracking poll.
