Today’s Good News for Obama: A new poll shows that one voting bloc is far more enthusiastic than pollsters previously thought: Latinos. A full 87 percent of registered Latino voters reported that they are likely to vote. That turnout rate would top even the 2008 tally, when 84 percent of registered Latinos voted. And 8 percent—or about 1 million Latinos—have already voted. Since Latino voters favor President Obama over Mitt Romney 73 percent to 21 percent, these voters could give Obama the critical edge in Florida, Nevada, Colorado, or even Arizona.
