Last week's Eye Poll took a look a the 1st Congressional District. The race is now between Democrat Martin Heinrich and Republican Darren White. In our first unscientific poll 57% preferred Heinrich and 43% preferred White.
In our introduction to this particular Eye Poll, we were criticized for characterizing former City Councilor Heinrich as "far left." We'll stand by that characterization and any objective review of the former councilor's record will support our argument. Mr. Heinrich's record bears out a belief of increased government interference, redistribution of wealth, and government control. The obvious result of his demonstrated philosophy is a transfer of freedom from the people to the government.
This week we'll take a look at the New Mexico U.S. Senate race. Most polls put Democrat Udall far ahead of Republican Pearce. Of course, Pearce just emerged from a hotly contested primary and Udall got a free ride after the Almighty Alcalde withdrew from his second race in almost as many months. In fact, Congressman Udall has pretty much gotten a free ride his entire political career. We'll see what happens to him when he faces a determined opponent for the first time. Don't forget to vote!
