PHOENIX - A CNN poll shows that President Barack Obama has a big lead over Mitt Romney among likely Latino voters, an important group in the upcoming election.
The survey shows that Obama has the support of 70 percent of likely Latino voters and that Mitt Romney is supported only by 26 percent.
In the 2008 election, Obama also gained a high level of support among Latino voters, so the trend isn't new, according to the article.
The poll also shows that the majority of Latinos believe the economy is a more important issue than immigration.
