A recent survey finds Latino Catholic voters strongly favor Obama, while Latino evangelical Protestants are more closely divided in their support for Obama and Romney. The survey also finds rising support for same-sex marriage among Latinos.

However, the turnout rate of eligible Latino voters has historically lagged that of whites and blacks by substantial margins.
