Morning you know -- -- politics now one of the things have been taking a look at through our sister web site Fox News Latino.
Is how voters in the Latino community view each of the presidential candidates and their help us break that down this morning it's Julie Banderas as we continue to -- -- need -- -- So what are questions who do you trust to do a better job handling the topic of immigration.
Well first before we get immigration who do Latinos support -- Obama vs Romney in this is an interesting number because everybody knows that.
The majority of the Latino vote is in.
Obama's corner at this point but what's interesting to note is that is exclusive poll.
With the election just two months away Romney is doing veteran fact and -- and an Obama.
Is it his numbers are actually sliding among Latinos let's -- up at the poll which asks that the presidential election were held today.
How would you vote right now sixty per cent of those polled.
Would go with President Obama while 30% would go with governor Romney now despite the large gap in the poll.
Some are Republicans are actually saying that this is a sign that Romney's message to Latinos may be resonating because.
Others are surprised that Romney was able to garner 30% of the Latino support.
But it may actually show a lack of enthusiasm for Obama.
Because he's at 60%.
Obama by the way was leading up by 70% -- a lot -- was hovering at about 20% so Obama's numbers are going down bombings are going up obviously it's still a huge gap.
But you're seeing a little bit of a difference.
-- has a lot of ads that are out there right now the -- is -- showing that.
His immigration position with Latino his Spanish language ads are working in his economic.
Messages also resonating.
Among the Latino -- -- he's got two more months you know -- How much higher -- can get it we'll have to win the well received tickets he has a man.
-- out there like senator Marco Rubio of Florida.
Who potentially can really help them with some of the issues -- the Latino community as well.
But what you say is so critical the intensity falling off from President Obama -- it it may not necessarily mean that those people would vote.
For governor Romney it's just his -- run out of a period.
Right yeah well there's less enthusiasm for some reason and an end and he is garnering more attention so in -- you know -- That that question the next question which you you -- talking about is the most important.
Issue two Latinos.
And you mentioned immigration but surprisingly immigration is not their number one.
That was just one.
Had a friend you know we've got we won't get to immigration or second -- threatened at the economy 48% of blunt yeah knows.
-- polled actually believe that the economy is the most important decision.
When it comes to their vote in two months only 6%.
Said that their vote would be decided based on the immigration issue.
We just a bit of a surprise -- immigration came in fifth place among voters polled compared to other issues they say they cared more about the economy that of course health care at 14% education.
At 11% social issues at 8% national security in the military came in sixth with -- -- with 5% but even with Romney.
Focusing on the economy as his platform.
About 60% of those surveyed said that they would vote for the ticket of President Obama and vice president Joseph Biden while only 30% -- cast their ballot for -- -- morning eight US senator Paul Ryan.
Another -- I want to get too as far as who.
Do you Latinos believe.
Would do a better job at handling the immigration issue in this country.
This is a tricky one because there are a lot of Latino Americans.
Who believes that that President Obama has not done a good job.
At securing our borders however when it comes to immigration.
As a president who would better handle.
The immigration issue 63%.
-- you believe that President Obama would do a better job because of -- We've seen here recently with the dream Acton and people being able to stay in this country who want -- -- is -- is a huge if there is a huge -- -- -- because it basically allows many of those views that were brought into this country right airline currently in the state of Arizona the -- that that was getting out of solid lines on the local news and in some of that.
Yeah who might be a little bit more pessimistic and probably -- -- because everything as a political issue this yes to the presidential campaign so I would say that the timing of that.
Was very experienced in the last two -- improving economy and creating jobs 59% believe President Obama would do a better job.
-- 33% for governor Romney and -- the presidential election were held today once again.
They feel Obama would be stronger on all of these major issues he's key issues that the Latinos.
Consider to be top priority and pressing and no governor Romney picking up some steam and in that you you have.
Which issue is most important I want to catch everybody up because that's our question of the day among all voters.
And right now all of you 76% of you who've taken those of all of you 76% say it's the economy slashed jobs it's interesting because despite our very high unemployment rate people still have more faith -- President Obama.
When when you look at the last four years or inflationary situation here I guess in answer to that was polling now there is no answer -- that would be your follow up -- my -- I mean it's it's fifteen patients a little nervous refusing because if our current president was doing a fabulous job with the economy than -- numbers would make a little more sense to me.
Announcing -- we won't know how they vote until November.
Now you are right -- we think we do know what they care about.
Good to see you are Indians -- Fox News looks you know dot com I -- -- -- you can.
-- and don't we got more polls.
Latinos believe the American dream that's another one that's out there and read more about check that out.
