Ahead of election, N.M. gubernatorial candidates not concerned about early polls

One day before New Mexico’s midterm election, the two candidates vying for governor say they’re not concerned about early polling numbers.

“I really don’t look at the polls much,” said Congressman Steve Pearce, the Republican candidate for governor. “I will tell you on the streets that I’ve got people working for me.”

“The way that I think certainly I behave as a candidate is you take no vote for granted,” said Congresswoman Michelle Lujan Grisham, the Democratic candidate for governor. “You work hard all the way through.”

Still, a new Albuquerque Journal poll shows Lujan Grisham with a ten-point lead over Pearce. The poll was conducted between October 26th and November 1st. The margin of error is +/- 3.1 percentage points.

“Democrats are looking for a future,” Pearce told ABC-7. “They’re looking for someone who knows how to manage. That’s the difference between my opponent and me. She’s a lawyer. I’m a manager.”

“I’m all in,” Lujan Grisham said. “Imagine a governor that’s willing to work across the aisle with Congress to develop and deliver better health care reform.”
