The president won 69 percent of Latino voters nationally, while Romney won 29 percent, according to exit polls. If the polls hold, that would be a larger margin than 2008, when Obama defeated Republican John McCain 67-31 percent among Latino voters.
In Florida, the state where Romney had the best chance of winning Hispanic voters thanks to a cadre of traditionally-Republican Cuban-American voters, Obama won 60-39 percent, according to exit polls. That would be the best performance from a Democrat in Florida dating back to 1992. His performance was even better in western states like Colorado.
