A new NBC News/WSJ/Telemundo poll, shows that 67 percent of Latino registered voters would cast their ballots for President Obama and 23 percent for Mitt Romney.
But the poll shows a challenge for the Obama campaign with Latinos indicating that they're not as interested in the election as other Americans. Interest among Latinos in the upcoming presidential elections is at 68 percent, 11 percent less than most Americans -- 79 percent.
The poll – the third in a series of monthly surveys of Latino respondents produced by NBC News, The Wall Street Journal and Telemundo – also found that Latinos are more optimistic about the direction the country is headed -- 41 percent -- than most Americans -- 32 percent -- are.
The poll shows Republican Mitt Romney continues to have an image problem with Latinos – just 22 percent view him positively while 44 percent view him negatively.
