DENVER -- A new poll Tuesday will provide a better idea of what issues are important and which political candidates Hispanics prefer.

Nearly 21 percent of Coloradans are Hispanic. Like in 2012, key races will most likely come down to women and Latino voters. That includes District 6, which includes parts of Denver, Aurora and Brighton, areas where there is a big Hispanic presence.

The race between Republican incumbent Mike Coffman and Democrat Andrew Romanoff might be the country's most heated congressional race. Last month, Coffman was asking Latinos what matters to them at a market in Aurora, while Romanoff spoke to voters at a Latino movie theater.

For months on the campaign trail, the answer has often been the same.

"No matter how you say it -- in English or Spanish -- no matter what you say in Colorado, what matters is what you're doing in Washington, D.C., and what he's doing is part of the problem," Romanoff said.

"If you look at the 2012 campaign, I didn't know any of these issues," Coffman said.

The results of the Latino poll will be released Tuesday morning and you can bet immigration will be one of the big issues that Hispanics care about most.
