President Obama claimed two out of every three Latino votes nationwide, matching his performance among Hispanics four years ago, according to exit polls.

With votes still being cast in the far West, Obama was winning 69% of the Latino vote to Republican challenger Mitt Romney’s 29%.

Four years ago the president won 67% of the Hispanic vote while his Republican opponent Sen. John McCain won 31% of the votes cast by Latinos.

So far Latinos have made up about 10% of the overall vote, roughly matching their 9% share in 2008.
