Poll: Cracks appear in Obama's Hispanic support

An Associated Press-Univision poll finds a few cracks in President Barack Obama's once solid support among Hispanics.

The survey of more than 1,500 Hispanics shows they still overwhelmingly favor the Democratic Party over the GOP, and a majority still think Obama is doing a good job.

But the survey shows Obama gets only lukewarm ratings on issues important to Hispanics like the economy and immigration.

That could bode poorly for the president and his party. In a tough political climate, Democrats desperately need this critical constituency excited about helping the party hold onto Congress this fall.

The poll was also sponsored by The Nielsen Company and Stanford University.
