It is not quite that simple. New Mexico has gone for Republican candidates many times and when the Dim candidate does carry NM it is very close. We are a state the GOP can win, it takes the right candidate and that person has to campaign here- many don’t bother to because we sure don’t have many votes for them to gather. I actually will be surprised if Obama wins NM in spite of the polls, I haven’t heard a single person say they are happy with him at all. Of course if the GOP doesn’t have a decent candidate and turn out is low the liberals will turn out for him so he could win us that way. I think that is true of the whole country though- if the GOP candidate can’t get a turn out Obama will win again.
Interesting... I don`t think McCain ever campaigned there, did he?
