Gallup’s poll is based off of conversations with more than 9,000 likely voters scattered throughout the U.S. and Newport says Gallup takes special care to ensure Latino voters are accurately accounted for.
"We interview in Spanish and do everything we can to get a full and complete sample," Newport says.
Gallup also made another observation that could help Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney on Election Day. Gallup predicts that for the first time in recent years, more voters identify as Republicans than Democrats.
Today 49 percent of likely voters identify as Republican or lean that way, while just 46 percent of likely voters polled said they planned on voting for a Democrat. That is a major swing since 2008 when Gallup predicted 54 percent of voters would cast ballots for Obama.
