WeAskAmerica New Mexico Presidential Poll: Obama (50.9%), Romney (40.6%), Gary Johnson (3.9%)

“New Mexico

While some thought New Mexico would be in play this fall, the Land of Enchantment is clearly leaning left in the presidential race this year:

Poll type: Automated Date: Sept. 25-27, 2012 - Participants: 1,258 Likely Voters - Margin of Error:± 2.85%

PRESIDENT Barack Obama Mitt Romney Gary Johnson Undecided
ALL VOTERS 50.9% 40.6% 3.9% 4.6%
GOP ONLY 11.6% 82.7% 2.3% 3.4%
DEM ONLY 81.5% 12.5% 2.0% 4.0%
IND ONLY 36.8% 44.5% 9.2% 9.5%

The only real surprise to us was that former NM Governor Gary Johnson isn’t doing better here. While New Mexico has been leaning left, Johnson was pulling down double digits early in the summer but has clearly faded since. His presence on the ticket was once believed to be a problem for Mitt Romney. Now, his meager draw isn’t taking enough chunks to matter, and Barack Obama is cruising toward the finish line.
