A new poll released today shows Congressman Pearce, candidate for U.S. Senate, is now within striking range of his opponent Tom Udall. The Rasmussen survey, which had Pearce down by 28 points in late July, shows he has closed the gap to 8 points in less than a month.
"It proves what we're seeing and hearing all over the state. People are rejecting the failed policies of the past" said Pearce "Particularly on energy, they are tired of watching Tom Udall and the far-left anti-drilling, anti-nuclear extremists deny access to American resources.
"New Mexicans need help and Tom Udall refuses to give it to them, choosing instead to listen to special interest groups and now the voters are starting to take notice."
The telephone poll of 700 likely voters was conducted by Rasmussen Reports on August 20. The margin of sampling error for the survey is +/- 4 percentage points with a 95 percent level of confidence.
In previous Rasmussen polls the numbers show Congressman Pearce closing the gap over the last several months. On June 18 the congressman trailed by 28 points and on July 24 by 25 points.
