Another Good Poll for Heinrich and Obama in NM

No big surprises here, but the latest Rasmussen poll shows Democrat Martin Heinrich beating Republican Heather Wilson in this state 52 percent to 39 percent.

That's an even wider gap than the 51 percent to 41 percent margin shown in last week's PPP poll.

Four percent say they support an unspecified other candidate while five percent are undecided.

Wilson has to be praying that Heinrich starts channeling President Obama in tonight's debates.

Speaking of Obama, he's taken a hit in other states following last week's anemic debate performance. But it doesn't seem to be affecting him much here. Rasmussen shows the incumbent walloping Republican Mitt Romney in the state 54 percent to 43 percent.

Libertarian Gary Johnson wasn't included in this poll. Two percent said they preferred "some other candidate," while two percent were undecided.

Rasmussen surveyed 500 likely voters in New Mexico on Monday. The margin of error is +/- 4.5 percentage points
