Highest percentage Mexican descended state
Highest percentage Spanish colonial descended
Second highest Indian population state
Likely a taker state but that is not very accurate comparative...
Most of Dixie given huge black populations are takers too but whites band together and vote R between 70-90 percent
They do not in New Mexico
I had family there....my dad was born in Artesia in 33
I love it there....there are some solid folk there....even in Santa Fe...just there last summer
Kali....Minnesota and New York are giver states....just saying

“They do not in New Mexico”
Whites do not comprise 70-90% of the population in NM.
NM did vote in a conservative GOP Governor.. Martinez. Hispanics tend to be conservative, family oriented people. But, we are a border state. The illegal alien population is quite large and like most border states it is out of control.
Up in the northern part of the state you have your California Liberals, environmental wackos and the corrupt legacy of our former Governor Bill Richardson.
Martinez is also dealing with a democrat controlled State Legislature which makes it very difficult to clean up the corrupt underpinnings of the former governor, and his appointees, out of the State Government.
Albuquerque and Santa Fe do not represent most of the State of NM. They just dominate by their population numbers.
Part of the problem is the influx of californians who have changed this state politically in the last few years. We used to be a very republican state
