While some misinformed conservatives are buying into the media hyped fairy tale version that has the Republican party imploding in upon itself and conservatism being staked through its heart following the government shutdown and debt ceiling battles, I would ask that readers turn their eyes to an example the Mainstream Media has said NOTHING about. A conservative governor, Roman Catholic, who also happens to be a daughter of Mexican immigrants, is absolutely CRUSHING it in New Mexico with a near 70% approval rating – Governor Susana Martinez.
Conservative Catholic governor of New Mexico Susana Martinez.
Martinez popular across party lines
Governor Martinez has some surprising support outside of her party.
KOB Eyewitness News conducted a survey in collaboration with Survey USA and found 66 percent of New Mexicans are happy with the job she is doing. She fairs well with both men, 62 percent approval, and women, 70 percent approval.
…Martinez’s popularity even crosses party lines, 64 percent of independents say they like what she is doing and 44 percent of democrats are pleased with her work as governor. LINK
And Martinez garners this widespread approval with the following political platform:
-Wants smaller government
-Feels economic growth can result from tax cuts, not tax increases
