Wilson Releases Internal Poll Showing Her Down 5

Not a good sign for your campaign: Releasing an internal poll showing you down five points.

In a sign of how far Heather Wilson's prospects have fallen in the New Mexico Senate race, the Republican nominee's campaign did just that on Monday -- and touted the results as a "comeback."

The survey shows Democratic nominee Martin Heinrich leading Wilson 46 percent to 41 percent. The release accompanying the poll notes that Wilson "has a long history of come-from-behind victories."

While the race was once considered likely to be close, more recent polls have showed Heinrich pulling away -- and the National Republican Senatorial Committee has pulled its advertising from the state, indicating that the GOP no longer considers it a good pick-up prospect.

The Public Opinion Strategies poll was conducted Sept. 12-13, surveying 500 likely voters, for a margin of error of plus-or-minus 4.38 percentage points.
