  • Along highway, voters show New Mexico’s a battleground

    By Paula Aguillar
    Along I-25 in New Mexico (AP)

    They call this place the Land of Enchantment, but it is also a land of pueblos and wineries, hot springs and oil wells, old-time ranchers and new-age jewelers, Democrats in the north, Republicans in the south and independent-minded folks who vote Libertarian or Green scattered among straw-colored prairies and desert scrub.

    New Mexico offers a scant five electoral votes among the 270 needed to be elected president, and yet it has long been viewed as a key to victory. Perhaps because of its propensity to reflect the nationwide popular vote, often by the slimmest of margins. Democrat Al Gore won here in 2000 by 366 votes; President Bush took the state in 2004 by a margin of 5,998.
