Latinos favor Obama? I'd like to see WHICH Latinos. I have been hearing quite a few LEGAL immigrants who are not high on this president at all and are FIERCELY opposed to 'border hoppers' who they view as abandoning their families not because of repression but just to get a better job to be able to buy stuff.

The Hispanics that want entitlements will continue voting for Obama. Those that are interesting in the economy turning around so their business and job prospects increase will go with Romney.

Former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney, who will be the party's 2012 presidential standard-bearer, has not only seen his party support soar, he has also taken the lead in the head-to-head matchup polls against President Obama.

It didn't make the network news shows Monday night, but the Gallup Poll officially began its daily tracking polls in the presidential race this week. Its survey of registered voters across the country showed Romney...
