That's an interesting statistic and demonstrates the importance of viewing various slices of the electorate state by state rather than on a simple national level.  Why?  Because most of the states are not swing states, so increasing the percentage of Hispanic voters who prefer Romney in those states is not likely to change the election results from that state.  Where it does matter is in swing states, like Florida.  In other words, what the Hispanic slice of the national electorate thinks of Romney is not particularly relevant; it's what the Hispanic slices of the electorate in each state, and the swing states in particular, think of Romney that's important.
