SANTA FE — After decisively winning election last year, Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham’s honeymoon with New Mexico voters might be wearing off.
The first-term Democratic governor’s approval rating of 41 percent came in toward the bottom of the pack, according to a national Morning Consult poll released Thursday that tallied the popularity of all 50 governors.
However, it was in the same neighborhood as the approval ratings for several other governors who took office this year, indicating that voters might still be forming their opinions.
Roughly 33 percent of state voters surveyed Jan. 1 through March 31 disapproved of the job Lujan Grisham was doing, while the remaining voters were undecided or did not have an opinion.
