WASHINGTON (CNN) - A new poll released Thursday shows overwhelming support from Latinos for Sen. Barack Obama over Sen. John McCain.
Obama's approval rating with registered Latino voters, the nationwide Pew Hispanic Center poll found, is at 66 percent versus 23 percent favoring McCain.
Obama's "strong showing in this survey represents a sharp reversal in his fortunes from the primaries, when Obama lost the Latino vote to Hillary Clinton by a margin of nearly 2-to-1," according to Pew Hispanic Center associate director Mark Hugo Lopez.
Obama's favorability among Latinos is slightly up from a Gallup Poll summary of surveys taken in May, which showed Obama with 62 percent of Latino voters nationwide, compared with 29 percent for McCain.
"He now appears to be even more popular than Hillary Clinton among Latinos," Lopez said.
Hey Berkely Square, the rest of the country has moved on from the Democratic Primaries, why can't you. You can continue to cry in your milk, or you can get up off your rear, and do something. Vote, be counted for, no matter which party.
I'd like to vote for Barack, but sounds like you are jealous. Just remember, there will come a time when you're going to want Barack supporters to vote for Hillary. The GOP can't stand her, and you're going to need our help.
Hey Nightingale – if you plan on criticizing the spelling of others, learn to spell "Osama" and "cojones." Moron.
Everyone I know is afraid of the man and with good reason. obama could care less about you people. He just wants to be president. He is the beginning of the end for this country.
obama = the dumbing of America. Do you think England,France or Germany would elect a black man to run their country? NOOOOOOOOOOO.....................they would not. But they want to see it happen in America because they know what's going to happen. They know it will knock this great country off it's high horse.
> Isn't it funny that most of Ossama's supporters are uneducated

Talk about clueless. The majority of Obama supporters are college graduates with substantial incomes, as has been reported over and over again. It is the bitter and angry PUMAs that are illiterate, poor and frankly irrelevant and your post does everything to propagate that stereotype.
Hola Abby!!! Yo siempre supe que los hispanos iban a apoyar a Barack. Nosotros tambien somos minoria y tenemos que unirnos encontra de los que predican el odio a los que no lucen como ellos.
Latinos por Obama!!!!
You'll probably see wide margins of support for Obama across the board, from African Americans (obviously) to Hispanics to Jews. Yes, Jews favor Obama over McCain.
And in November, we'll see that /everyone/ favors Obama over McCain.

"Isn't it funny that most of Ossama's supporters are uneducated and illiterate."
"Experience, /conjones/ and dependablilty"
It's spelled cojones, not conjones.
The polls and demographics across the board show that the overwhelming majority of Obama's supporters are college educated and well-informed. Meanwhile, you're just a bitter old lunatic who thinks the presidency should be handed out based on privilege and time in service rather then merit and capability. I'm sure I'll be entertained by your outraged screaming and whining in November when Obama wins.
Doesn't surprise me. Latinos know the better candidate when they see him!
> No latinos are not supporting Obama!
I guess you must speak for all of them.. how omniscient of you (or is that too big a word).
"Isn't it funny that most of Ossama's supporters are uneducated and illiterate. But that is sad as well. Someone should teach them the difference between lose and loose. And the "60 year old white woman" should add descriptive phrase behind her name as "white trash."
Name calling and bigotry all in one asinine post, I think you've earned the village idiot award of the day Berkely Square.
The is no such thing as a Latino.... Label's... John McCain has the Able's on his side.... Oppinion Polls are Programs... The Brain is a very delicate organism, you can't mess with.....
I still think PUMA is a hoax started by the McCain campaign and perpetuated by gullible and easily misled people.
I would like to believe that most people that are serious about politics don't get so bitter about their first choice not being picked that they choose a polar opposite for revenge.
This hispanic still supports HRC.
This hispanic also wants a new Democratic party.
"Amazing the amount of sick people (mentally) Obama doesn't deserve the honor, hasn't accomplished anything to win the honor and has no experience except talking. I like Denzel better and he speaks better."
"Isn't it funny that most of Ossama's supporters are uneducated and illiterate. But that is sad as well. Someone should teach them the difference between lose and loose. "

"Uneducated and illiterate"? Really? You have the audacity to call Obama supporters uneducated and illiterate after typing out those 2 gems??? Sounds like someone could benefit from another ENGLISH 101...
BTW, Obama consistently polled/polls higher with college educated voters than HRC or McCain. Where did you go to college, the University of DUUUUHHH???
I still think illegals are harming this country because we have to pay more in taxes for schools, health, etc. But I'd be will to listen to Barack's views, if he can make immigration make sense for me. I would not listen to McCain's views EVER. He has all the big corporations to satisfy.
Barack is for immigration reform, let's see how that works. I'll try it.
Obama sera un buen presidente para todos.
i Si se puede !
Poor Johnny. His canoe is sinking fast! :(
Let the Obama Steamroller warm up its engines. Time to roll over the so-called "Straight Talk Express". McCain and his Keating Five ways can move to the side of the road. It's time for a real leader. It's time for a change. McCain ranked 894 out of 899 at Annapolis in 1954. Only 5 students ranked worse than this moron. I think 8 years of a complete idiot is enough for one country. Obama will turn this country around and allow us to lead the world by example. Vote Obama.
Look at the Face of OBama... Scematic face of a Schemer...
From a CNN article today: "recent poll suggested just 48 percent of Americans thought he[Obama] would make a good commander in chief, compared to 72 percent for McCain."
Just an interesting contrast to all of the other polls out there...
Electrify the fence now.
Si se puede!
This latino and muchos muchos mas are going to ensure that Barack Obama will be our next President.
Obama en 2008!
Latinos know McCain will put them on buses back across the border. They are not dumb people and will do what is best for them.
CNN, Please stop it with your sensational language "SHARP REVERSAL".
Obama enjoyed decent support among latinos. The question was that his support among latinos was always compared against Hillary in the primaries. Latinos have very strong feelings for Bill Clinton and to some extent Hillary Clinton. It's not a 'sharp reversal' but an expected result.
For CNN (and other news organizations) to put so much weight on polling done in the midst of an intense Democratic primary race and extrapolate the results into a general election race was (and will continue to be) dumb and show a real misunderstanding polling results analysis.
Of course .... McCains base is full of Bush Repugs,..Bigots...a small minority of old voters who are out of touch and about 2000 members of PUCKA PAC...LOL
