…CBS reporter Ed O’Keefe wrote up online: Joe Biden’s support is soft among Latino voters, with only 49 percent saying they will vote for him in November, and another ten percent saying they’re leaning that way. The poll came from Latino Decisions, a Democratic polling firm.

“Typically, a Democratic presidential candidate needs to earn Latino support at least in the mid-to-high 60% range nationwide to pad a White House victory,” O’Keefe explained. “Hillary Clinton won 66% of Latino voters in 2016 while Barack Obama won 71% of them in 2012.”

Other outlets also drew attention to this problem on Friday, including AP and the Los Angeles Times
