TODAY: Brand-New Polling on Latino Vote in Colorado Released; Watch Live-stream Here

by Van Le on 10/10/2012 at 10:13am

Yesterday, America’s Voice with Latino Decisions released a brand-new poll on the Latino vote in Arizona, finding—among other things—that Obama leads Romney 80% to 14% there among Latino voters, and that Democratic senatorial candidate Richard Carmona leads incumbent Jeff Flake 75% to 12%.

Today, we are releasing a new poll on the Latino vote in Colorado.  The poll will answer questions about which candidate these segments of the electorate are supporting, what their policy priorities are, how enthusiastic they are about voting, what they do and don’t like about each candidate, and much more.

Check out the brand-new Colorado Latino vote polling here.  Check out our summary of the data below:

COLORADO

44% The percentage of Colorado Latino voters who rank immigration as a top issue that Congress and the President should address (just below those who rank jobs/economy, at 45%)
86% Percentage of Colorado Latino voters who say that immigration as a topic is important to their voting decision
76% Obama approval rating among Colorado Latino voters
74% Percentage of Colorado Latino voters who support Obama’s reelection, compared to 20% supporting Romney
54% Percentage of Colorado Latino voters who say that President Obama’s deferred action policy makes them more enthusiastic about Obama
64% Percentage of Colorado Latino voters who say that Mitt Romney’s support of self-deportation and harsh anti-immigrant laws makes them less enthusiastic about Romney
69% Percentage of Colorado Latino voters who say they know someone who is an undocumented immigrant
55% Percentage of Colorado Latino voters who say they know a DREAMer
93% Percentage of Colorado Latino voters who say they are enthusiastic about voting in November
76% Percentage of Colorado Latino voters who support the state’s ASSET bill, which would have allowed immigrant youth in the state to pay a special tuition rate higher than in-state tuition but lower than out-of-state tuition
