A final poll of the presidential race in New Mexico shows Hillary Clinton clinging to a two-point lead over Republican Donald Trump. The poll by ZiaPolls was conducted Nov. 6 and surveyed 8,429 likely voters—a much larger number than normal for a public opinion poll, especially for a statewide poll. The poll finds Clinton has the support of 46 percent of likely New Mexico voters to Trump’s 44 percent. Former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson, running as a Libertarian, receives the support of just 6 percent of voters, while Green Party candidate Jill Stein is at 1 percent.
A new poll shows Hillary Clinton’s lead over Donald Trump is just 3 percent in New Mexico. That comes from ZiaPoll, a new pollster that released four polls in the presidential race in recent months, with each showing the trend moving toward Trump. The most recent poll, conducted on Nov. 1 and 2, found that Clinton leads Trump 46 percent to 43 percent, with Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson at 7 percent and Green Party nominee Jill Stein at 1 percent. This poll reflects the closest margin between Clinton and Trump in any poll so far this election season, edging out a late-September Research and Polling, Inc. poll for the Albuquerque Journal which showed Clinton with a 4 percent lead.
A new poll shows that Hillary Clinton leads Donald Trump by just 5 percent in New Mexico. The survey by ZiaPoll, a new pollster this election cycle, shows Clinton leads 45 percent to 40 percent over Trump, with Libertarian Party nominee earning the support of 9 percent of likely voters, while Green Party nominee Jill Stein trails at 2 percent. The poll is in sharp contrast to polls of other surrounding states, which shows Clinton behind by a handful of points in deep-red Texas and in a very close race, possibly even ahead, in Arizona. A previous poll by ZiaPoll showed Clinton leading by 10 percent. In the press release announcing the results, the pollster said Trump was actually leading among voters between 18-34 years old.
A recently-released poll shows Hillary Clinton leads Donald Trump by double digits in New Mexico, up from a five percent lead last month in a survey from that same survey. Both results comes from ZiaPoll, a pollster based in New Mexico. ZiaPoll provided NM Political Report with the full results of a poll conducted on the final day of voter registration in New Mexico and a previous poll conducted two weeks earlier. The poll conducted on Oct. 11 shows 46 percent of likely voters in New Mexico backing Clinton compared to 36 percent who say they would vote for Trump.
