Poll Shows Obama's Electoral Lifeline

A Gallup poll released Tuesday shows a plethora of key constituencies have soured on President Obama since 2008, neatly capturing why the incumbent's re-election remains uncertain. But the survey also highlights a source of hope for Democrats: Obama is doing as well among Hispanics as he did in 2008 despite a marked decline in his overall popularity.

According to Gallup, the president polled at 65 percent among them in surveys taken days before his face-off with John McCain; now, he's up to 67 percent (the percentage exit polls showed he eventually won with Latinos). The uptick is within the survey's margin of error, but it does indicate the president might be doing even marginally better among Hispanics now than he did four years ago.
