NM-01: Reuters Poll Shows Madrid Up Big

I don't think that I can quite believe that the news is this good -- a Reuters poll has Patricia Madrid up ten points on Heather Wilson.
They have a little snippet in the Washington Post.
NEW MEXICO 1 - Five-term Republican Rep. Heather Wilson trails Democrat Patricia Madrid 50-40 percent in this Albuquerque-based swing district.That's all it says on the race, but out of the 15 races polled, Democrats lead in 11 of them.

There's no word on methodology, but it does say that the margin of error is plus or minus 4.5 percent. That would put Madrid comfortably ahead heading into the final month. As I said above, I can't quite believe this -- especially on the heels of the Albuquerque Journal poll putting the race tied.
I'm not saying that I don't believe Madrid is ahead -- clearly, she has all the momentum. But I'd say to restrain our celebrations a little -- this fight is far from over.
