Latino Voters Are Still An Uphill Climb For Mitt Romney: Poll

President Barack Obama still leads Republican challenger Mitt Romney among Latino voters in five swing states, and his recent decision to halt deportation of undocumented young people upped enthusiasm, according to a poll released Friday by Latino Decisions.

The poll, done in conjunction with advocacy group America's Voice, found that 54 percent of Latino voters in five key battleground states -- Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Nevada and Virginia -- were more enthusiastic about the president after his announcement.

As many as 1.4 million undocumented young people may be allowed to stay in the United States temporarily with work authorization under the new policy.
