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.
And that's shocking why? It's sad the media actually bought the idea that the HRC camp was alluding to in that at the end of the day Latino would support McCain over Obama. Or that b/c they supported her they'd be less inclined to switch to Obama. Another myth her campaign successfully sold to CNN and other MSM outlets.
Any other time in AMERICA, John McCain would be crushing this upstart from Chicago. However, all the racist minorities will likely cost him this election by voting for this empty suit who they support only because of his skin color.
I am a 20 year old Latino-- and all for Obama.
Obama will be president
Are you sure it's a reversal? Could it be that CNN and the other TV clowns were trying to push ratings or just flat out wrong to begin with?
"Never Barak Obama" i have news for you ..im a latina and I AM supporting Obama!! and so is my mother...my father...my sister...my cousins..etc etc etc
This is news? The minority bloc is always voting for the party they think will give them the most for free. It is how a Republic begins its downfall. A taxpayer voting for Barry is the same as chicken voting Col. Sanders.....
I will be voting for John McCain, as will the rest of my family. We do not trust Barack Obama.
Orale vato! Obama 08'
And Texas, Colorado, Arizona and New Mexico have an almost majority of Hispanic voters. I once lived in Pueblo, Colorado, with a 68% Hispanic population. This will be a landslide.
Concerned – Nightingale can't find his pill. Cindy was visiting this morning and ...........
Please! Where are people getting this information. I don't know one single hispanic who is voting for Obama. NOT ONE!
This is only the beginning. This election is going to be a landslide. The entire freakin' world loves him.
It's easy to lie about wars because every good soldier has to back his Commander in Chief. Bush knows the military has to fall in line and he knows it's hard for Americans to fight against wars and their country. Over 4,000 lives have been lost because Bush was so stubborn and wanted to prove a point. It is sad to me that a lot of those soldiers were Latinos and others who didn't even have citizenship. I think anyone who goes to war for us should automatically become a US citizen unless he's committed a felony.
We found out the hard way that the world has turned a dangerous corner, and we have to come up to speed. We can't, as Americans follow the example of countries that resolve their problems with torture, etc. We can, however, show the rest of the world how America resolves problems by following our Constitution, which has worked for us for over 200 years.
Whoever is elected our next president will have to be smarter, not tougher in order to lead us through this new world. We're Americans, it won't be easy but we can do it.
Anyone notice how conspicuously absent "Hispanic voter for McCain" is in this blog? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!
nightingale Sings in Berkley Square:
Hey, take the pills the doctor told you to take. Are you even from this county? You took that name from a British song from the 40's. Looks like someone may have overstayed their Visa.
"was such a romantic affair.
And, as we kissed and said 'goodnight',
A nightingale sang in Berkeley Square"
This will teach McCain or other politicians a lesson not to take an issue too seriously.
CNN keep the polls open, you are going to see the signs of a landslide soon. America people are going to wake up and do the right thing . And vote for no more Bush administration.After the convention and debates watch those numbers go. Please put David Gergen on more also, I love his views and I am recommending him for Obama's press secretary.OBAMA 08
Connie from Indiana
ALL MY HISPANIC FAMILY WILL BE VOTING FOR MCCAIN
What's the McCain camp to do now? Come on Repblicans hit us with your best shot!
Let’s face it the world is war-weary, disenchanted with the current U.S. administration and are petrified just thinking that this legacy could continue. People look to Sen. Obama as a possible breath of fresh air, and to those who think that the rest of the world does not matter, I pity you.
Small matter: before you take a bite of your next banana – think of where it comes from. Homegrown banana plantation? Methinks not! Your Latin American neighbors (for sure). Big matter: Oil – can the U.S. produce enough of this liquid gold to satisfy its other ravenous appetite? Ha, ha!
A lot of latinos felt good after Bush won in 2004. They are not feeling good today, especially when they go to the gas pump. Vote your best interest, not good feelings. Vote smart, vote Barack.
McCain is going down in flames in November. I hope he takes lots of other Republicans down with him.
We will not be fooled by McCain ....we want change we deserve change !!
Obama for President
Why am I not surprised?
"It's Time". WELL SAID!
Hey, Nightingturkey. What planet are you on?
Yeah how many did they poll 20. LOL The Latino's I know are voting for McCain so they didn't poll very many.
