A special Democracy Corps and Greenberg Quinlan Rosner survey of Hispanic voters in Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico and Nevada shows that Barack Obama holds a commanding lead among Latinos in the southwest. The Democratic nominee leads John McCain by 45 points and has a chance to perform better among Hispanic voters than any Democratic presidential candidate in recent history.

In this memo, Stan Greenberg, James Carville, Mark Feierstein and Ana Iparraguirre note Obama's strong standing among Latino voters in the southwest, the power of his biography to connect with Hispanics, and the importance of underscoring Obama's readiness to serve as president and be an effective commander-in-chief.
