NM-Sen: PPP Has Ben Ray Luján (D) Crushing Mark Ronchetti (R) 48-34, Biden Crushing Trump 53-39

2 min read

Didn’t get a chance to post this but this poll was released yesterday out of New Mexico:

In the U.S. Senate race, the poll found that Democrat Ben Ray Luján had a similar lead over Republican Mark Ronchetti, 48 percent to 34 percent, with 18 percent unsure. Luján is a U.S. Representative, while Ronchetti is a former TV meteorologist.

Like with the presidential race, both candidates lead by wide margins with members of their own party—72 percent to 12 percent for Luján among Democrats and 73 percent to 13 percent for Ronchetti among Republicans — while the Democrat leads by 17 points, 46 percent to 29 percent, among Independents.

Earlier this month, Ronchetti easily won a three-way Republican primary, while Luján faced no opponents in the Democratic primary.

Republicans last won a U.S. Senate race in New Mexico in 2002 when Pete Domenici, the longest-serving Senator in state history, won his sixth term. Domenici retired ahead of the 2008 elections, when Tom Udall defeated Steve Pearce in the general election. Udall is now retiring after his second term in office.

The poll found that, of those surveyed, 47 percent voted for Clinton in 2016, while 37 percent voted for Trump and 16 percent voted for someone else or did not vote.
