President Obama’s big win among Hispanic voters was fueled in part by Latino women who voted for Obama in greater numbers than they did four years ago, according to national exit polling.

Overall Obama won three out of every four votes (75%) cast by Hispanic women and 63% of Hispanic men, a 12-point gender gap.  Four years ago the gap was only four points as Obama won 64% of men and 68% of Latino women.  Romney won 35% of Latino men and 24% of women.
