A new poll from Project New America and Public Policy Polling of Florida, New Mexico, and Nevada Hispanics pours water on the Republican notion that selecting a Latino nominee would bolster GOP chances of winning the Hispanic vote.

Hispanic voters in each state list jobs and the economy as their primary concern when deciding which candidate to vote for.
