President Barack Obama gave a shout out to Hispanic Americans in Mexico City on Friday — an electorate with ever-growing clout widely considered to have propelled the 44th president to a comfortable re-election in 2012.

Latinos voted for Obama over Republican Mitt Romney 71% to 27% in 2012, according toCNN. In 2008, Obama received 67% of the Latino vote.
