Exit Polls: Majority Of Latino Voters Support Gay Marriage

Preliminary exit polls show that Latino voters were more likely than others to support same-sex marriage.

ABC News reports:

Nearly six-in-ten Latino voters (59%) said their state should legally recognize same-sex marriage while 32% said their state should not.  But among all voters, about half (48%) favored legalization of gay marriage while nearly the same share said they would oppose it (47%).

Non-Hispanic whites were the most opposed to states legally sanctioning same-sex marriage (47% favored but 50% were opposed). Among blacks, half (52%) would support while 40% opposed state support for gay unions.

A previous poll by NBC Latino reported that 60% of Latinos supported marriage equality, while other exit polls indicate that the Republican Party has lost touch with the Latino community….and you know, everyone else.

Early and unconfirmed exit poll data show President Barack Obama garnered  71% of the Hispanic vote, while  Romney bought earned 27%.
