A new poll shows President Obama opening up a jaw-dropping 48 percent lead among Latinos, 70% to Gov. Romney's 22%. In 2008, Obama beat Sen. John McCain among Latins by 36%. Of course, many of Romney's strongest moments during the GOP debates were when he was criticizing his opponents for being too humane on the issue of immigration, so the numbers should not surprise. But, they spell one thing for Romney and the Republicans: Defeat. If Obama wins the Latino vote by any margin north of 40%, he takes Colorado, Nevada, Virginia, and it is difficult to see how Romney loses all three of those states and still makes it to 270.
