Teague Leading Pearce by 7 in New NM-02 Poll
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee today released a new Anzalone Liszt Research, Inc. poll that shows Congressman Harry Teague leading Republican challenger Steve Pearce by 7 points.
In the initial head-to-head in the race for New Mexico’s 2nd congressional district, Teague leads Pearce 51 to 44 percent. Conducted September 7-9, the poll surveyed 400 likely voters and has a 4.9 percent margin of error.
“The more New Mexicans are reminded of the Steve Pearce record – backing the economic policies that drove our economy into the ditch like protecting tax loopholes that encourage companies to ship American jobs overseas, support for privatizing Social Security and Medicare, and ripping the safety net out from underneath New Mexico seniors – the less they like what they find,” said Andy Stone, Western Regional Press Secretary for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. “As this poll shows, voters understand that Steve Pearce is wrong for New Mexico.”
