A newly released report from Latino Decisions, says President Obama is “poised to win a record high share of the Latino vote, and in turn likely to win key swing states and enough electoral college votes to retain the presidency.” Latino Decisions says that voting bloc is enough to put President Obama over the top in swing states and help him get reelected.

Latino Decisions shows Obama earning the support of 73 percent of Latino voters with “consistent vote history or have already voted” — creating big separation from Mitt Romney, who picks up only 24 percent. If Obama reaches such a high-level of support, he would exceed former President Bill Clinton’s 72 percent share of the Latino vote in 1996.  Matt Barreto, principal investigator for Latino Decisions, said that could augur well for Obama in a handful of key battlegrounds.
