Latinos Shift to Obama


A new Gallup Poll finds that Latino Democrats now favor Barack Obama over Hillary Clinton 51% to 44%. This is significant because Clinton has held a firm advantage with Latinos throughout most of the primary season. Moreover, the shift to Obama means that the McCain Campaign will have to work very hard to match the 44% of the Latino vote won by George W. Bush in 2000.
