Romney Chipping Away at President's Lead Among Florida Hispanics

Reduced by 6.5 percent


The big advantage that President Barack Obama had enjoyed over his Republican challenger among Florida Hispanics has been reduced to 6.5 percentage points, according to a survey released Monday.

The survey headed by Florida International University professor Eduardo Gamarra and Miami-based consultants Newlink Group shows that Obama has the support of 50.7 percent of Latino voters in Florida, compared to the 44.2 percent who say they support former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney.
