The aforementioned NSON Opinion Strategies poll (see New Mexico Senate above) projects a tight gubernatorial contest. In the statewide battle of two US House members, Rep. Michelle Lujan Grisham (D-Albuquerque) now holds just a 44-40% lead over Rep. Steve Pearce (R-Hobbs). The latest poll, from the Albuquerque Journal (9/7-13) had Ms. Grisham leading 50-43%. Five polls have been taken since the 1st of August, and all give her an average percentage of 48. This contrasts to Mr. Pearce’s average of 42%.
