New Mexico Governor: Martinez (R) 48%, Denish (D) 43%

Thursday, August 26, 2010

Republican Susana Martinez earns her highest support yet against Democrat Diane Denish in the race to be New Mexico’s next governor.

The latest Rasmussen Reports statewide telephone survey of Likely Voters shows Martinez picking up 48% support, while Denish, the state's current lieutenant governor, earns 43% of the vote. Three percent (3%) prefer some other candidate in the race, and six percent (6%) are undecided.

The two women were tied in the past two surveys conducted in May and June after Denish led Martinez, a county district attorney, by 19 points in the first Rasmussen Reports survey of the race in late March

This race still remains a Toss-Up in the Rasmussen Reports Election 2010 Gubernatorial Scorecard.
