On the heels of a recent poll showing a dip in support for President Obama among Latino voters, the Romney campaign is out with a new Spanish-language ad pledging the candidate’s commitment to finding a long-term, bipartisan solution to the nation’s immigration challenges.
“As president, Mitt Romney will work with Republicans and Democrats to fix our immigration system, which is broken,” says Craig Romney, Mitt Romney’s son, in the ad, entitled “Nation of Immigrants.”
Airing on TV in markets across the nation, the most recent Spanish-language spot highlights the Romney campaign’s efforts to find an opening among Hispanic voters despite what appears to be Mr. Obama’s significant advantage among the demographic.
Over the last several months, various polls have suggested that Latinos favor Mr. Obama over Romney by an overwhelming margin: In March, for example, a Fox News Latino poll put Mr. Obama a staggering 56 points ahead of his Republican rival.
