A Latino Decisions poll shows Mitt Romney continuing to struggle with Latinos, with Barack Obama taking him down in a hypothetical matchup, 66%-23%.
As the pollster notes, that's little changed from November 2011 when the president led, 67%-24%.
It's not terribly surprising that things haven't changed in the past half year. The general election hasn't kicked in and most Latinos are Democrats, so it makes sense that they wouldn't have been paying too much attention to the GOP primary.
Still, Romney needs to either a) raise his numbers by, at least, 10% or b) count on really low Hispanic turnout.
One more piece of bad news for Romney -- the survey also found that Latinos looked favorably on Dick Durbin's DREAM Act proposal, 87%-10%, while only barely approving of Marco Rubio's, 49%-46%, and in a head-to-head battle over the two plans, Durbin's won, 82%-13%.
Respondents made their pick after being read a brief explanation of both plans (the descriptions were very fair, by the way).
