    A record turnout of Hispanic voters helped US President Barack Obama back to the White House.

    Exit polls showed that Hispanics made up 10 percent of the total votes cast, compared with 9 and 8 percent in the previous two elections.

    As many as 70 percent of America's fastest growing demographic picked Obama which analysts think will force the Republicans to rethink their message.
