Two new polls out today both show Republican Susana Martinez ahead of Democrat Diane Denish in the Nov. 2. matchup for governor.
One, done for Denish's campaign, shows Denish behind by five points while the other, done for Martinez, shows Martinez up by 10.
Along with the polls, of course, comes the spin. Republicans are thrilled, and Dems say the race is still extremely close -- which it is. The poll for Denish, by Greenberg Quinlan Rosner, showed Denish behind 44-49. The Martinez poll, by Public Opinion Strategies, showed Martinez up 50-40.
