ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – New polls show high approval ratings for both Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham and Albuquerque Mayor Tim Keller.

According to a poll from the Albuquerque Journal, 59% of voters approve of the way Lujan Grisham has handled her job as governor. Thirty-three percent disapproved and 8% had mixed feelings. This Journal Poll is based on a statewide sample of 457 likely general election voters who also voted in either the 2016 and 2018 general elections or both.

Meanwhile, Mayor Keller received 60% of voters’ approval. Twenty-two percent did not approve and 19% said they had mixed feelings.

The Journal reports that the poll findings come close to a 2018 poll that found that Keller had a 61% approval rating following his first nine months in office. This new Journal Poll on Keller is based on a sample of 342 likely general election voters in Albuquerque who voted in either the 2016 or 2018 general elections or both.

Correction: A previous version of this story stated that the Keller poll was based on a sample of 342 likely general election voters. The story has been updated to clarify that the poll results are based on two separate polls.
