President Barack Obama still has a considerable lead with Latino voters, but it may be slipping, according to a poll out Wednesday from Quinnipiac University.

The poll found Obama at 59 percent support, lower than many other polls that put him at a higher advantage. Fox News Latino points out that its poll from March showed 73 percent of Latinos supported Obama, while a USA Today/Gallup poll in June found he had 66 percent support.

Other findings from the poll: More women -- 51 percent versus 39 percent -- prefer Democrats to Republicans, while 47 percent of men prefer Republicans to the 40 percent who favor Democrats. Obama continues to lead with black voters, 92 percent of whom support him over Romney.

Another poll from the university, this one released on Thursday, sheds some light onto how voters feel about immigration, an issue important to Latinos. Most American voters, 55 percent to 39 percent, support Obama's recent policy change that will allow some undocumented young people to stay in the United States temporarily should they meet certain requirements, according to the poll. About half say it would not impact their decision in November, but 30 percent would be less likely to vote for him. Nearly 20 percent say they are more likely to vote for Obama based on his deportation directive.

7% in a few months isn't horrible, but it could get worse.  of course if he keeps at this rate he'll only be down to 59% or so come October.

Obama leads big with Latinos, but enthusiasm still lags:

Quote
President Barack Obama continues to lead presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney by wide margins with Latinos, according to the latest NBC News-Wall Street Journal-Telemundo poll.

Hispanics, the largest-growing segment of the U.S. population over the past decade, said they preferred Obama over Romney in the presidential race, 63 to 28 percent.

That margin has been relatively consistent since May when the poll started sampling additional Latino interviews. Itís also, though, far below the stated Romney campaign goal of winning 38 percent of the Hispanic vote.

"Our goal is to do better than four years ago and the McCain campaign did ó our goal is to hit 38 percent with the Hispanic vote," Jose Fuentes, a national co-chairman of Romney's Hispanic leadership team, told The Hill newspaper. "That's our goal. That's our national average."

at least the Romney campaign is aiming low.
