The Republican Party of New Mexico is informing the public that a newly released presidential poll in New Mexico showing Joe Biden leading President Trump is a Democrat-operated poll by North Carolina professors. The survey uses automated phone calls and texting which are considered less reliable. This was an impersonal interviewing technique which is less scientific and doesn’t screen for likely voters.
In the polling trade, this type of survey is considered a “quick and dirty” poll which is meant to feed the media.
This robocall poll, conducted by Public Policy Polling for NM Political Report, erroneously shows Biden ahead of Trump 53%-39% with 8% unsure.
Similarly, the poll shows Ben Ray Lujan ahead of Mark Ronchetti by 14 points in the U.S. Senate Race, also using these less reliable robocalls and text messages.
When you see these polls from the left, be aware of the flaws and inaccuracies.
Polls like this one are not considered a quality measurement of New Mexico voters, and most political leaders consider surveys like these problematic because they do not use live interviews.
While President Trump has been challenged these past months with COVID-19 and national protests, he continues to inspire and deliver with his leadership, and we are seeing strong signs of an economic return.
The Trump Victory team and the Republican Party of New Mexico are confident President Trump will win New Mexico, as the White House continues to commit resources and manpower to help Mr. Trump collect our electoral votes this fall.
Republican momentum is strong, our workers driven and, with your help, we will turn New Mexico red!
