Three out of four Latinos will cast ballots for a presidential candidate supporting deportation relief programs, according to an America’s Voice and Latino Decisions poll released last week.

Asked what their most important issue was ahead of November’s general election, 41 percent of the 2,200 registered voters surveyed said immigration reform and deportations were at the top of their list, followed by the economy (24 percent) and education reform (16 percent).

“While Latinos care about all issues, our community remains deeply and personally affected by the issue of immigration,” said Voto Latino CEO Maria Teresa Kumar in a press statement. “How each party chooses to tackle the issue of immigration will directly influence who Latino votes will back.”
