Hispanic citizens voted in large numbers, with 71 percent supporting Democratic incumbent President Barack Obama, while only 27 percent cast ballots for Republican candidate Mitt Romney. The 44 percent gap was larger than Obama’s 36 percent margin of victory over GOP candidate John McCain in 2008.  Story continues
