Just days before the GOP primary vote in South Carolina, polls show that Mitt Romney leads the pack there, as well as nationally. But his approval among Latinos is much lower. A recent Pew survey found less than a quarter of all Hispanic voters would back Romney in a general election, despite the fact that he has roots in Mexico. His father, George Romney, was born in the Mexican state of Chihuahua.
