National firm ranks NM governor among least popular

New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham

SANTA FE — Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham’s net-approval rating slipped over the last three months and she is now ranked among the 10 least-popular governors in the country, according to a survey by the national firm Morning Consult.

The poll said 44% of New Mexico voters surveyed in the last quarter approved of Lujan Grisham’s job performance and 43% disapproved.

Her net-approval rating of 1 percentage point is down from 8 points in the first quarter of 2019, according to Morning Consult.

The national firm surveys registered voters across the country about their governor, releasing results every three months.

Morning Consult said it surveyed 2,453 registered voters in New Mexico and that its poll had a margin of error of 2 percentage points.

The firm said Lujan Grisham’s 43% disapproval rating was the sixth-worst in the country.

Lujan Grisham, a Democrat in her first term, won election decisively last year, with a 14 point margin of victory over her Republican opponent.
