September 9, 2012

New Mexico has been regarded as being in President Obama's re-election column, but a new Albuquerque Journal poll shows that the race there may be tightening.

In the poll, published on Sunday, Obama drew the support of 45 percent of New Mexico voters surveyed between Sept. 3 and Sept. 6, while Mitt Romney had 40 percent. That margin for Obama was well below those found in other recent polls, which had shown Obama with double-digit leads.

Former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson, the Libertarian Party candidate for president, had 7 percent support. The Journal found that Johnson subtracted almost equal numbers of votes from Obama and Romney.

 

The statewide poll of likely voters has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.8 percentage points.
