Eight percent of Latinos voters have already gone to the polls to vote in the next presidential election, according to the latest Latino Decisions/impreMedia tracking poll.
The poll shows that for many of them, the clear choice is President Barack Obama.
Seventy-three percent of registered Latino voters favor Obama, compared with just 21 percent for Republican rival Mitt Romney, the poll reported.

As GlobalPost reported, the Obama campaign has been making a big push for early voting this year, with the president, himself, casting his ballot last week in Chicago.
That gives the president a 52-point lead, Latino Decisions explained.
In addition, 45 percent of those polled said they were more "enthusiastic about voting" compared to 2008, which means Obama could benefit with a high showing at the polls among Latinos, a key voter block in this election.
