ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A newspaper’s poll found that nearly half of New Mexico voters say the new federal health care law has been a failure.

The poll by the Albuquerque Journal (https://bit.ly/Z2162i) also found that a majority of voters said Gov. Susana Martinez was right to take advantage of law by expanding the number of people eligible for Medicaid.

Forty-nine percent of voters said the law was a failure, while 32 percent believed it was a success. The rest were undecided about whether the law was a success or failure.

The poll was conducted Sept. 9-11 and was based on telephone interviews with 500 people who voted in the 2010 and 2012 elections and who said they would likely vote again this year. The poll’s margin of error was 4.4 percentage points.
