Question about Heating & Cooling
A/C units do not remove all humidity - that is the purpose of a de-humidifier. Instead they STABILIZE the humidity in the form of condensation when the hot refrigerant is misted into cool vapor. The humidity condensate collects on the coils... thereby stabilizing the humidity at a certain temperature.
There is a drainpipe, usually a white plastic pipe, coming out of your unit that should be dripping water this time of the year at a pretty good volume. This water is the moisture from your house. If it isn't able to discharge this water when your air conditioner is running, it will continually put it back into your home, increasing the humidity level.
Check to make sure the tube is clear and the unit is properly draining.

Air conditioners are designed to remove heat from a room or cool it down and it will take some humidity out of the room but not all. Depending on the (SEER) Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio as to the amount a 12 and 13 SEER typically remove about 20 to 25% but that is not its purpose to remove humidity.
If you are only interested in removing humidity, then you should get a humidifier, but if you also want to cool the room then the air conditioner will work a little but not as much as what you may want which generally goes for all makes, though this one may be a little worse than similar makes. To help in dehumidifying you would want to lower your indoor air flow over the evaporator (lower the blower speed as low as possible by using the manufacturers minimum airflow recommendations). Since it is so high, I would also get the humidifier like I previously suggested above as that is meant to specifically remove humidity especially if it is so high. Let me know how this turns out.
