Poll: Obama up 13 in New Mexico, Johnson hurts Romney

June 1st, 2012

A poll for Project New America and Patriot Majority, a progressive political action committee, shows that President Barack Obama is up 13 points over Mitt Romney in New Mexico. The poll finds that former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson polls at 12 percent in the state.

The poll was conducted by Fairbank, Maslin, Maullin, Metz & Associates (FM3).

The poll shows that Obama leads Mitt Romney 48 percent to 35 percent, with Johnson clocking in at just in double digits. Johnson will presumably run strongest in his home state where he twice won statewide election.

“The presence of Gary Johnson on the ballot significantly undercuts Romney’s longer-term viability and may result in legal efforts by GOP-aligned groups to knock Johnson off the November ballot,” the polling memo by Craig Varoga, the president of Patriot Majority, states.

The poll finds that Obama leads Romney 62 percent to 24 percent among Latinos while Romney leads Obama 43 percent to 39 percent among white voters. Johnson gets the support of 9 percent of Latino voters and 12 percent of white voters.

The poll also shows a significant gender gap, with Obama leading Romney 53 percent to 32 percent among women, with Johnson getting the support of 9 percent. Among men, a traditionally Republican-leaning constituency, Obama leads 43 percent to 38 percent, with Johnson taking 16 percent.

The poll seems to indicate that Johnson’s presence on the ballot would indeed be a thorn in the side of Romney’s campaign.

This is the first poll since April, when Public Policy Polling showed Obama ahead of Romney 54 percent to 40 percent if Johnson was not on the ballot. When Johnson was included in that poll, he received the backing of 15 percent, though not cut into the support of either candidate significantly more than the other.

While polling in New Mexico is light, no poll dating back to last year shows Obama trailing in New Mexico and many show Obama ahead by double-digits in the state that narrowly went for Al Gore in 2000 and then went for Bush slightly in 2004.

The Patriot Majority/Project New America poll of 502 voters was codnucted from May 16 to May 21. The poll has a margin of error of 4.4 percent.

I hope that doesn't happen. He has no chance to win, and all he would do is distract people from Obama's horrible record.

So what if he has no chance to win—the Republicans deserve the loss should that occur due to a split in the vote until they wake up to what they've become.

They're now just a vicious gang as they try to block the Paul folks from having their own festival at the Florida State fairgrounds three days before their convention which is going to be crawling with DHS thugs, FBI, agent provocateurs inside and outside. If you wear a Paul button, you'll probably get tased. That place will be very dangerous for a Paul supporter. The Republicans have even resorted to violence in the LA delegate convention to derail the their own rules because Paul was getting more delegates. They have resorted to outright cheating in some places.

You want to elect scum that supports "exceptionalism" to justify permanent aggressive war, which looks and sounds eerily like "superior race" rhetoric, loves torture, the police state, big banks, bailouts, right-wing Keynesianism, and oligarchy—then fine. Just don't be surprised if the increasing unhappiness with the choices by voters leads to a split vote denying the Rs a victory.

Time to dance the Rombama with Democrats with our one party rule.

Of course you wouldn't you're a dumbass and people would see unlike Romney Johnson never raised taxes with the new Mexico house being 2/3rds democrat.

What is the criteria? You have to poll 16% in one state? I would love it if Johnson was included in the debates, especially since he was shut out of the GOP ones.

I read a few weeks ago that he's polling at 6% and 7% elsewhere. Still that's not bad for the "L" ticket as the usually poll at 1% or so. Shows dissatisfaction.

Well then a poll from his home state, which is tiny, doesn't really tell us anything.

This. They have been alienating a large part of their base for too long and until they start accepting some of our ideals, they will have consistent blowback from the Ron Pauls and Gary Johnsons of the world.

...a very natural reaction to corruption and physical assault of another Republican running a state convention. To sum it up tyranny.

The fact that you can be so blase about such abuse is more troubling...then again you want Mitt, the other Obama, to win.

The latest crime of Mitt, that's pissing conservatives off:

Conservatives Wonder Why Romney Picked Obamacare-Loving Mike Leavitt To Lead Transition Team
The Wall Street Journal reported last year that Leavitt “strenuously backed the core piece of President Barack Obama’s health-care law and urged the states to move forward together in adopting health insurance exchanges.” And his stance hasn’t changed: “

Another BIG govt socialist in Republican clothing.

If the democrats woke up to what they have become Obama wouldn't get 2% of the vote. It's not all about the failure of the republicans, it's the failure of the two party system. I'd say just get all of those that want to be president and put them in a chain link fenced ring and let them go. The survivor gets the WH.

At the last EBG (Evil Big Government) meeting, I brought up BEP. We discussed ways in which we could make her more miserable for not knuckling under to the EBG.

However, our group psychiatrist said that we couldn't do anything to make BEP more miserable than she alreadly is. He said that any attempt at persecution would validate BEP's worldview. He also suggested the best course would be to simply allow her to wallow in her insignificance. He informed us that BEP would always take a contrary view, even if the views she currently advocated became mainstream, because a mainstream view would not allow her the joy of proclaiming her intellectual superiority over everyone else.

Consequently, I, leader of cell 154XB4, say in an open message to any EBG operative that may see this thread, to leave the insurgent citizen known here as "BEP" completely alone.

There's a lot of bitterness you and your fellow pubs post during the Obama regime. Four years of handwringing and gnashing of teeth. I'll remember this post should there be four more to quote it.

Polls show most Americans have not been happy with direction of this country since at least 2005/6. I'm one of them.

So continue on with your false sense of hope, Bushie revivalist.

Bushie revivalist? Not quite, but live deep in your delusion. I'm having to determine if you are even keeled or just knee deep in liberal shit. Bush was not the best president we've ever had, but I would take him over what we currently have. What you have to determine is do you want Obama for another 4 years or do you want someone that at the least a person that believes in the constitution.

As of this moment I plan to vote for Gary Johnson in November. It's not a "protest" vote and I don't really care if he has a chance to win. For me he is the best choice among the three candidates. None of which matters as Obama will almost certainly win New Mexico regardless.
