Poll: Fla. Hispanics favor Obama over Romney, 53-37

Latino Decisions has a June 12-21 poll out today of 2000 Hispanic voters in the battleground states of Florida, Virginia, Colorado and New Mexico. The margin of error is plus or minus 2.2 percent for the overall sample and 4.9 percent for Florida.

Overall Obama was leading 63 percent to 27 percent. In Florida, with a much different Hispanic electorate, Obama was leading 53 percent to 37 percent.

Sixty two percent of Hispanic voters in Florida approved of the president's performance and 24 percent disapproved. Also, 63 percent said they were enthusiastic about voting inthe presidential race.

With it's large population of Cuban Americans and Puerto Ricans who don't face deportation issues, immigration is not the hot button issue in Florida as it elsewhere. Still, the poll found 39 percent considered immigration the top issue, 35 percent said the economy and 21 percent said jobs. Forty ffive percent in Florida said they knew someone who is an undocumented immigrant, far fewer than other states polled.

Thus the overt attempt to remove primarily Hispanic's from the voters roles. Using outdated and On it's face faulty information. Now in order to receive information from S.A.V.E.; you need unique identifiers. Florida S.S.S., either won't or can't give D.H.S. these. Cry wolf all you want; but if I need my SSAN, to recieve something from the Government (V.A. services) this Floriduh S.O.S. will need like numbers.Remember even to Sup of elections stated the list received from Floriduh, was rought with errors.
