RASMUSSEN ON NM

Good news for the Democrats in the latest Rasmussen poll in this Enchanted Land.

Barack Obama is leading John McCain 55 percent to 42 percent -- that's a margin of 13 percentage points -- while Tom Udall is leading Steve Pearce 57 percent to 37 percent, 20 big ones.

Check out the presidential poll HERE and the Senate poll HERE.

Obama has a 17-point lead among Hispanics in New Mexico. He leads by 15 among women but trails by eight among men.

Rasmussen conducted the telephone survey of 700 likely voters on Monday -- obviously before last night's presidential and Senate debates. The margin of error is 4 percentage points.

There were also numbers for the current president and out governor.

Just 27 percent of likey voters in New Mexico say Presdient Bush is doing a good or excellent job.

Gov. Bill Richardson fares better, but he's below 50 percent. Those polled, by a margin of 48 percent say he's doing a good or excellent job. Only 17 percent say he's doing a poor job.
