The polls are closed in the Mountain West and the verdict of Hispanic voters here is clear. While the overall race results are not yet decided, by lopsided margins exit polling shows that President Obama handily won the Latino vote in Arizona, Colorado and New Mexico.  Here’s a snapshot of the leanings of the Hispanic voters in these states:

Colorado:  Among Hispanics, Obama is leading Republican challenger Mitt Romney 74% to 25%.

Arizona:  Again, most likely a big win for the president among Hispanics. Obama claimed three-quarters (77%) of the Latino vote here to Romney’s 22%.

New Mexico:  Not quite as big a win here for Obama among Latinos, but still decisive.  Obama claimed about two-thirds (66%) of the Hispanic vote to Romney’s 28%.
