The poll shows that President Barack Obama has a lead of 54 percent to 43 percent over former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney.
The eleven point margin is identical to a September 28 poll by Rasmussen Reports. However, this polls hows Obama going further above the 50 percent mark in the store.
One thing to note about the poll — Rasmussen Reports does not include Libertarian Party candidate and former New Mexico governor Gary Johnson in its polls. Two percent, however, do say that they support “another candidate.”
Romney’s polling bump seems to be subsiding a bit nationally. However, Romney would need a much bigger bump to overtake Obama in New Mexico.
The New Mexico survey of 500 Likely Voters was conducted on October 8, 2012. The margin of error on the poll is +/- 4.5 percentage points.
