New PPP Poll On #HB2 Nearly Identical To Last Poll, Including Dem Heavy Sample

IIn April, Left leaning Public Policy Polling (PPP) did a survey that included HB 2.

I took that poll and had some fun messing with their sample. I also reviewed the results , which said more about parties and zip codes than anything about HB2.

PPP has released a second poll. I have a lay out of all the questions at the bottom of this article. Here are a few tidbits first.

This new poll is very similar to the first one. In fact, the needle really didn’t move much either way from their April poll. HB 2 only lost one point of support from May to April. Continue reading

NM US Senate Race: Closer Than You Think

Now that the dust has settled, the post-election hang over is gone and the votes have been counted I wish to direct your attention to the New Mexico Senate race. Yes, I know it has been decided, but it was closer than you think.

Incumbent Senator Tom Udall (D) faced off against businessman Allen Weh (R) on November 4th and won. The votes were 286,462 (55.56%) to 229,164 (44.44%).

The sitting Democrat really had nothing to worry about in the blue state of New Mexico. However, looking back into history at the 2008 election results shows a different scenario.

In 2008, Senator Tom Udall, then a 5 term Congressman was running for the Senate seat held by retiring incumbent Pete Domenici (R) against incumbent Congressman Steve Pearce. Ultimately Udall won with 505,128 (61.3%) to Pearce’s 318,522 (38.7%).

In 2008, the Democrats swept most the senate seats to gain a super majority. We all know this history. New Mexico would be considered a lost cause in 08. When asked if the NRSC would be walking away from the New Mexico Race (it was heavily favored to flip Democratic), Senator John Ensign stated to the Wall Street Journal:

“You don’t waste money on races that don’t need it or you can’t win.”
