Nevada's one of the swing states in the upcoming presidential election. So both Barack Obama and MItt Romney are trying to eke out an advantage. But when it comes to connecting with Hispanics, Romney is trying hard, but still has work to do.
President Barack Obama generated positive feelings with much of the Latino community this summer when he announced a deferred deportation program for young, undocumented immigrants. But as the program is implemented, there's a hole. Those same youths are still ineligible for healthcare coverage under the Healthcare Reform Act.
In Nevada, there's a last-minute election push to reach out to Latinos, who make up 27 percent of the population. President Obama is leading among Latino voters, but the Romney campaign is trying to make some inroads in a key swing state.
The increasing sizable Latino vote has been called a "sleeping giant," that if awoken could change the course of the election . The World's Matthew Bell updates host Lisa Mullins with the latest on the Hispanic turnout.
Mitt Romney has a two-fold challenge with many Latino voters: try to convince them that he can fix America's broken immigration system, and that President Obama has failed them. But Romney runs a risk calling attention to problems.
