A new NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Telemundo poll gives Obama a 35-point lead over Romney at 63 to 28 percent.
Paul Ryan as VP isn't moving the dial either. Most Latinos (54%) say the selection of Ryan won't affect their vote, while 28% say the selection makes them less likely to vote for Romney.
While that's good news for Obama, the poll also shows Latinos are not enthusiastic about the election.
By every measure and every issue – from foreign policy to immigration, the economy to taxes – Hispanic registered voters said they overwhelmingly preferred Obama over his Republican opponent. But there continues to be a warning sign for the president’s reelection campaign: Latinos are among the least enthusiastic voting groups in the country this cycle.“
The president continues to perform strongly among Latinos, but his campaign continues to face the challenge of engaging interest and turn-out,” said Bill McInturff, the Republican pollster who conducted the poll with Democratic pollster Peter D. Hart. “As we head into the conventions, the evidence suggests Latino voters continue to lag behind in terms of their self-described interest in this election.”
