Two recent polls have Heinrich ahead
From the Telegram:
“A poll conducted by an outfit called We Ask America shows Heinrich has a 51 percent to 42 percent lead over Heather Wilson. This is the first poll to show that Heinrich’s lead is outside the margin of error. We Ask America is a subsidiary of the Illinois Manufacturer’s Association. Nate Silver of the New York Times says the pollster ‘often shows Republican-leaning results.’
“This poll also showed Barack Obama leading Mitt Romney 51 percent to 40 percent.
“A poll conducted on behalf of environmental groups which support Martin Heinrich shows Heinrich leading Heather Wilson 49 percent to 45 percent. The poll, by Fairbank, Maslin, Maullin, Metz and Associates, also shows that Wilson’s favorability ratings have dropped in recent weeks, as campaign ads have begun airing on both sides.”
