Poll: King could win June Democratic Primary

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – A new poll shows Gary King way out in front of the rest of the Democrats in the Governor’s Race and pretty close to Susana Martinez overall.

The numbers from the left-leaning Public Policy Polling have King leading the other four democrats by eleven points.

But political observers don’t think King has wrapped up the June primary.

The poll also shows Governor Martinez leading King by just five points if they went head to head.

This poll did oversample Democratic voters.

Governor Martinez’s campaign released a statement saying, “It’s telling that even a poll as skewed as this one shows governor Martinez ahead.”
