ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - Some Hispanic voters in New Mexico say they would like to see the presidential candidates do more to reach out to them.
With only a month and a half away to election day, the push is getting stronger to reach out to Hispanic voters.
This is coming in the form of political ads and forums like the one on Spanish television news networks
According to hispanicvoters2012.com , of all registered Hispanic voters across the country, 51 percent are democrat, 31 percent Independent and 18 percent are Republican.
That's similar to what KRQE News 13 found amongst the voters interviewed in Albuquerque on Tuesday. Although a common thread with everyone is wanting each candidate to do more.
"We don't hear candidates talk about those issues that are really affecting the community," Alejandro Emslie said. "The un-employment, problems at home, there's a lot of things going on that we're all struggling with but it seems to be not spoken about."
Others shared their opinion.
"If they can show policies and a plan, more concrete than just general comments that they make, I think people need to have some defined policies, defined ways that they're going to help," says New Mexico resident Larry Perrault. "...but right now, a lot of it is very general."
According to CBS News, in some of the latest polls Obama has a two to one lead over Romney with Hispanics. The very first debate scheduled for the candidates is set to take place on October 3.
