Without spurring riots or taking even a single jab at Gov. Susana Martinez, Republican presidential nominee Donald J. Trump jetted into New Mexico on Sunday night to rally his base and demonstrate he could speak to the issues of a state pollsters say Hillary Clinton appears likely to win.
Trump roused a diverse crowd that packed an airplane hangar at the Albuquerque International Sunport. He reiterated many of the same talking points he has used around the country in recent days, but also railed about health insurance companies leaving New Mexico or raising their rates to levels he called unaffordable for many. He drew some of his biggest cheers of the night when he reiterated his promise to build a wall on the states southern border.
The visit just nine days before the election and to a state with only five votes in the Electoral College left pundits scratching their heads...

A visit to New Mexico means that Trump has closed the gap in the state and is confident he will win there.
In 2012 Obama won 53 to 43 (Gary Johnson won 4%).
D/R/I was 42/30/28
M/F was 47/53
Racial breakdown: white 51%, hispanic 37%, other 13%.
I am most curious to know what his polling numbers are showing.

Trump will leave them scratching their Asses. They would be scratching their Balls, but they don’t have any.
Best Election ever...
Trump can win NM but he needs to get some Johnson supporters on board to do it.
That is why he visited New Mexico.
Those “puzzled pundits” are brain dead clowns.
Yep. Albuquerque ‘68. Where I lived at the time.
Route 66, Albuquerque, New Mexico, 1969.
By Ernst Haas (1921-1986).
Trump spendoing time is a state with “only” 5 electoral college votes?
Simple answer: He is going to take it all. HUGELY and BIGLY!
New Mexico is all about mexicans and indians and displaced californians. I wouldn’t waste a moment there.
Actually, majority of New Mexicans are white.
Last GOP presidential candidate to win the state was... GW Bush in 2004.
He also won IA.
I was thinking the cars looked kind of vintage.
> Without spurring riots
Ahem, Messrs Oxford and Nott, those riots where bought and paid for by Clinton.
I lived in NM 1972-1986.
Remember, it is a Democrat state, but the Dems in NM like guns. They are avid hunters. Miners out west often live in very poor homes, but own scoped Weatherbys or 700 BDL’s. They don’t like gun grabbers like Derr Hildebeast.
(I was GOP county chairman for a time in a county in western NM. Traveled AZ & NM extensively on business.)
Beautiful photo! I like the vintage Kentucky Fried Chicken sign, before it was reduced to KFC for the lazy dumbed down illiterate masses.
