Recent polls have emerged to show that President Barack Obama has a massive lead over Republican candidate Mitt Romney in terms of the Latino population to the tune of 66% to 25%. The Latino vote is important as it is the quickest-growing population in the United States and the President had a huge approval rating with Latinos when he was elected in 2008. He recently just stated that his administration would block the deportation of up to 800,000 illegal Latino citizens, which was a huge power move for the President and put Romney, who has a hardline stance on illegal immigrants. Now Romney’s approval among Latinos is the lowest among any candidate in the last 16 years.
Of course, the Republicans are doing their best to put a spin on this, saying that the Obama administration is doing this to take the attention away from the poor economy, which continues to flounder. However, Romney has to do something to raise his approval among Latinos, especially second-generation Latinos that the Obama bill is helping out by letting them stay in the country. While the economy is an important issue, immigration is a platform that can really assist the President in securing the votes he needs to stay in the White House so he can have enough four years to work on the economy, so Romney and company will have to pull out all the stops in the trail to the November election.
