Arizona could be swing state in presidential election

PHOENIX -- Arizona's 11 electoral votes could be up for grabs, according to a new Rocky Mountain Poll.

The latest poll shows President Barack Obama has 44 percent of the vote in Arizona, two points ahead of Republican challenger Mitt Romney. The poll's research director said who wins here could ultimately come down to the Latino vote.

"If Latinos turn out anywhere near proportionate to their numbers, they're going to be the deciding factor in this election," said Earl De Berge, research director for the Behavior Research Center's Rocky Mountain poll.

De Berge told Fox 10 Latino voters in Arizona heavily favor the president over Romney, 77 percent to 10 percent.

The challenge Democrats face is getting Latinos to head to the polls.

"About 20-25 percent of Latinos say they may not vote," De Berge said.

The poll shows 13 percent of all voters in the state are still undecided.
