SurveyUSA and Rasmussen agree. If it's Dinesh v. Martinez, it's dead even.

Prediction... Research2000 will post a survey soon with Martinez behind by 10 or more points.

Never heard of Susanna Martinez. The GOP made a smart choice by finding a latino woman. No white candidate would have a chance for the GOP in NM.

This could be a tough race for the Democrats, but here is what Martinez's stand is on immigration. Again, she got endorsed by Sarah Palin, and I am not sure if that will sit well with Latin Americans. If she is the "clarence Thomas" of the Latin American community, taking the conservative positions on race, she could have problems.

Susana Martinez
Adam Deguire, campaign manager for Republican Susana Martinez, said the responsibility to deal with immigration has been left to states because the federal government has failed to adequately address the issue.

“Susana Martinez supports the right of any state to ensure the security of its citizens, and today, that means dealing directly with immigration and border concerns,” Deguire said. “In New Mexico, Martinez believes we must implement fundamental reforms such as revoking driver’s licenses for illegal immigrants, opposing free tuition through taxpayer-funded lottery scholarships for those in the country illegally and end the sanctuary policy that prevents state police from inquiring about the immigration status of criminals.”

Deguire said Martinez is “the only candidate with deep experience on immigration issues as her office prosecutes over 600 cases related to border security every year and works with various law enforcement agencies to secure convictions against members of Mexico’s most violent drug cartels.”

Probably more like 6-8% behind for KOS. SO the truth is probably right in the middle?
