US Rep. Michelle Lujan Grisham (D-Albuquerque) is sustaining a 50-43% advantage over GOP Rep. Steve Pearce (R-Hobbs) in the open Governor’s race as reported in a new Albuquerque Journal newspaper poll (Research & Polling, Inc.; 9/7-13; 966 NM registered voters). The winner replaces term-limited Gov. Susana Martinez (R) next year.
Earlier, Ms. Grisham’s lead over Mr. Pearce had dropped to two points, 42-40%, when Emerson College released the results of their mid-August survey. Since then two Democratic polls gave her leads of eight and ten points, and now we see a seven-point spread in this latest independent survey.
