President Barack Obama retains his popularity with Latinos, according to new data from the NBC-Wall Street Journal-Telemundo poll. The key voting bloc favored the president, with 67 percent voting for him over Republican Mitt Romney, reports MSN

According to the U.S. Census, more than one-in-six Americans identify as Hispanic or Latino, and that population has been coveted by both political parties. A huge reason Hispanics favor Obama by such a wide margin is shared philosophy. On every category asked, which included questions about the middle class and immigration, Latinos say Obama would be better than Romney at handling these issues. 

It remains to be seen whether this favor will be turned into actual votes come election time. What do you think? Will President Obama be reelected? Share in the comments
