(CNN) - A new poll out Monday shows Barack Obama holding a slight advantage over John McCain in New Mexico, one of the most closely-fought presidential battlegrounds in the last two election cycles.
According to the new survey from the Albuquerque Journal, Obama holds a 5-point lead over the Arizona senator there, 45 percent to 40 percent, with 15 percent still undecided. The poll carries a margin of error of plus or minus 3.8 percentage points.

Keep it up, Sen. Obama! The false prophets don't need to take the high or low road – just hit any ole road and don't come back no mo'.
This is America's response to the negative, non-issue based, divisive, smear-laden, Bush-like campaign of The Original Mavericks – John McCain and Sarah Palin!
Americans want answers and unity.
McCain and Palin can only bring cover-ups and division!
Enough is Enough
Keep Pushing Obama and hit back hard !
Barack Obama For Radical Change
YES WE CAN!
One by one, the battlegrounds are shifting.
By most predicted counts, Obama is only a handful of electoral votes away from having 270...and to be honest, considering how McCain's been doing lately, I doubt that the old guy will be getting any of them back.
Work hard Obama, the fight is still strong.
HIP HIP, HOORAY!!!
Go Sara Palin 08
BOOM! BARACK BARACK, BOOM!
Of course! He's smarter and wiser than McCain!
Let's go BLUE ALL 50 STATES...We can do it...let's go people. This is our year to make a difference. JUST DO IT...OBAMA/BIDEN 2008
Well, I do not know where you are gettng the poll numbers from. Everyone I know is voting for McCain.
I have yet to get one poll phone call. They probably are just polling Democrates.
Traditionally Catholic New Mexico has a big decision to make : will it be pro-life McCain, or pro-choice Obama ?
Only 29 more days until the tyranical reign of the current empire is overthrown. The people will unite and liberate ourselves from the opression that is the current administration.
We've got your back in NC too Barack. Pay no nevermind to the old Keating 5 guy and the subpoena-dodging vp candidate.
Polls or no polls, keep it up Obama. America is beginning to wake up to McCain/Palin's crap. Ayers, Wright, that is all they've got. They can't talk about the issues so they will sling mud.
Take it all the way to the White House Obama. We've got your back.
It's all the way to the White House! Go Obama/Biden!
