The NSON Opinion Strategies firm, polling for the Elect Liberty PAC (9/20-24; 932 NM likely voters) finds Libertarian US Senate nominee and ex-two term New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson edging closer to Sen. Martin Heinrich (D). According to the latest poll, Sen. Heinrich draws 35% support with Mr. Johnson solidly in second position at 28%. The Republican nominee, Labor Commission member Mick Rich, drops all the way to 10% according to this particular poll.
Again, it appears that Mr. Johnson can become a credible candidate in this Senate race, but the three-way slate with he and Mr. Rich dividing the right-of-center voting base will likely re-elect Sen. Heinrich with plurality support.
