Gingrich, Wilson dominant in NM pres, Sen. primaries
Raleigh, N.C. – Despite popularity with the general electorate, former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson has never been particularly well-liked with his home-state Republicans. He certainly outperforms his minuscule standing in the presidential primaries in other states, but still can muster no more than third here. And if he were to switch races and opt for a Senate bid, he still would have considerably less support than favorite Heather Wilson. In his current campaign, Johnson has 11% behind national frontrunner Newt Gingrich’s 39% and Mitt Romney’s 14%, but ahead of the 8% earned by neighboring Texans Ron Paul and Rick Perry, as well as Michele Bachmann (6%) and usual fellow cellar dwellers Rick Santorum (3%) and Jon Huntsman (2%). Johnson actually leads 26-20-19 over Gingrich and Romney with moderates, but they are only 17% of the electorate. He gets only 10% with the 36% who say they are somewhat conservative and just 4% with the 43% plurality who are furthest to the right. Johnson would do better in the smaller Senate field, occupied mostly by lesser-known figures than the presidential candidates he has to jockey to outshine. But he would still trail former Rep. Wilson by a 42-31 margin, with Lt. Gov. John Sanchez at 15% and two long shots at 3% or less. Johnson has gained a little since the previous poll, when he was down 43-22, with Sanchez at 18%. It is a similar ideological breakdown as in the White House race, with Johnson tied at 38% with Wilson among moderates, but falling to a 4537 deficit with the center-right and to third at 18% to Wilson’s 43% and Sanchez’s 22% with the most right-wing voters. In the current iteration of the race, without Johnson in the picture, Wilson has an even more dominant 55-20 lead over Sanchez, up from 52-24 in June. PPP will release general election Senate numbers tomorrow and general election President numbers on Friday. PPP surveyed 300 usual New Mexico Republican primary voters from December 10th to 12th. The margin of error for the survey is +/-5.7%. This poll was not paid for or authorized by any campaign or political organization. PPP surveys are conducted through automated telephone interviews. PPP is a Democratic polling company, but polling expert Nate Silver of the New York Times found that its surveys in 2010 actually exhibited a slight bias toward Republican candidates.
