The aforementioned Pacific Market Research media poll (see New Mexico Senate above) also tested the open Governor’s race. The results from this race appear consistent with other data we’ve seen here. PMR sees Rep. Michelle Lujan Grisham (D-Albuquerque) leading Rep. Steve Pearce (R-Hobbs), 48-39%.
Again, the sample size of 400 likely voters is low, meaning the error factor is higher. While certain data has shown a closer race, most of the polling gives Ms. Grisham a lead within this poll’s range. Gov. Susana Martinez (R) is ineligible to seek a third term.
