Yesterday, two exit polls were conducted of Latino voters.
One was done as part of the National Election Pool, a consortium of ABC News,
Associated Press, CBS News, CNN, Fox News and NBC News. The other was a
separate exit polling specifically of Latino voters conducted by Latino
Decisions. The NEP exit poll initially showed a 69% vote of Latino voters for
President Obama while Latino Decisions showed 75% support for the President.
The NEP Latino number was later changed to 71% without explanation. The
difference, according to Latino Decisions, may be due to the NEP poll being
conducted only in English, something which has been seen as depressing Obama's
support percentages with Latinos as measured in campaign period polling.


Latino Decisions also reported strong Latino support for
Senate and House candidates. 72% supported Democratic Senate candidates and 77%
supported Democratic House candidates.
