Susana Savaged in Our Poll

Susana Savaged in Our Poll

The real vitriol came out in readers’ responses to the question: 'What would you like to tell Governor Martinez?'

BY DAN VUKELICH

The votes are in, and it’s clear that ABQ Free Press readers are seriously pissed off at Gov. Susana Martinez.

Last month’s “pizz-zah” incident appears to have triggered an avalanche of pent-up frustration over lack of economic development and anger over the governor’s stubbornness on education, the environment and the free ride they believe she has received from certain segments of the news media.

Susana Performance ChartThey have taken special offense at her penchant for crushing her political Gov. Martinez proposes $6.46 billion 2017 budgetenemies.

Our online readers’ survey was open from Dec. 30 to Jan. 8 and generated 1,841 responses.

Sadly, the governor’s best marks came in her promotion of New Mexico – 10.81 percent of the respondents said she has done “well” or “extremely well.”

Nine in 10 readers said they wouldn’t vote for her again if she sought higher office.

The survey generated responses from Democrats (51.55 percent), Republicans (15.92 percent), Independents (21.51 percent), plus people who identified themselves as Greens, Socialists or other (11.03 percent).

More women (59.64 percent) responded than men (40.36 percent). Based on the level of detail in the criticisms of the governor on education, there appeared to have been a significant response from teachers.

The real vitriol came out in readers’ responses to the question: “What would you like to tell Governor Martinez?”
