Hispanics are breaking for President Obama by more than two to one, according to NBC News exit poll data.
Obama beat Mitt Romney by 68% to 30% among Hispanics. That’s slightly better than he did in 2008, when he bested John McCain among Hispanics by 67% to 31%.
Obama’s share of the white vote, 38%, is down from the 43% that he won in 2008. But white voters appear to be making up a slightly lower percentage of the electorate, 73%, than they did last time, when they comprised 74%.
Romney alienated many Hispanics by taking a hard line on immigration during the GOP primaries.
