Denish favored for Governor
Raleigh, N.C. – Lieutenant Governor Diane Denish starts out favored to keep the New
Mexico Governor’s office in Democratic hands, although it looks like it could be a close
race between her and Pete Domenici Jr.
Denish leads the son of the state’s long time Senator 45-40. She holds much wider
margins against the rest of the Republican field- 48-30 over Allen Weh, 47-33 over
Janice Arnold-Jones, and 46-32 against Susana Martinez and Doug Turner.
Denish’s advantage comes in spite of significantly reduced popularity for Governor Bill
Richardson. Only 28% of voters in the state approve of the job he’s doing with 63%
disapproving. His 22% approval with independents and 7% with Republicans is not
unusual for a Democratic official these days, but he’s even in negative territory within his
own party at a 42/47 spread.
Denish is easily the best known of the Gubernatorial candidates with 75% of voters
holding an opinion about her. They break down positively by a 41/34 margin. A
plurality of voters has no opinion about each of the Republicans. Domenici is viewed
favorably by 27%, followed by 17% for Martinez, 12% for Weh and Turner, and 8% for
Arnold-Jones.
Although Barack Obama’s approval has slipped into negative territory at 45/48, both of
the state’s Democratic Senators have solid 48/36 approval spreads.
“Given Obama and Richardson’s low levels of popularity Diane Denish is doing pretty
well,” said Dean Debnam, President of Public Policy Polling. “But a contest with
Domenici certainly looks like it could be competitive.”
PPP surveyed 990 New Mexico voters from February 18th to 20th. The survey’s margin
of error is +/-3.1%. Other factors, such as refusal to be interviewed and weighting, may
introduce additional error that is more difficult to quantify.
Complete results are attached and can be found at www.publicpolicypolling.com.
