Final Latino Decisions Tracking Poll Indicates Democrats Winning Latino Vote

On this, the eve of the 2010 Midterm Elections, the Latino Decisions tracking poll finds a Latino vote more energized, more enthused, and significantly more Democratic than at the start of the general election campaign.

Overall, with undecided voters pushed to make a decision, they are reporting 70% vote intention for Democrats, and 30% for Republicans, on the generic ballot midterm question. The poll also found a Latino electorate still ambivalent about the Obama administration and still not convinced on its commitment to the cause of comprehensive immigration reform, which was promised, but for a variety of reasons failed to come up in the administration’s first two years.

Meanwhile, Obama approval has dropped back to about 65%. This number is over four percentage points higher than 8 weeks ago but is actually 6% weaker than on October 4.
