Yes, a poll is a poll! But it does give us a bit of insight on what those polled are thinking. I found the polling information on abortion very interesting. Abortion to me, is the biggest barrier between God and New Mexico and all of America. Early voting has begun here in New Mexico. I encourage you to seek the LORD and vet your the candidates with the Word of God. Do your research.

Your Civic Duty is to Vote! Most & Least Politically Engaged States, there’s a growing lack of political engagement among Americans
I asked Pastor Bill Ruhl, who is also the Vice Chairman of FGGAM, to share with us his thoughts about the condition of New Mexico and all of America.
The Political State of Affairs in New Mexico
When asked to write on the political state of affairs in America and New Mexico the word “Mess” immediately came to mind. Throughout my combined 30 years in this state I have been all too aware that the populace here, and throughout the nation, pays very little attention to the moral fiber of its candidates and spends equally little time investigating their actual stance on issues or their commitment to serving all their constituents once in office.
The debates, ads, and media coverage rarely focuses on having constituents informed on where candidates actually stand on important issues (that would require some level of actual accountability which sadly and, seemingly, intentionally doesn’t exist), but instead are based on character assassination, “attack ads”, and political bias that don’t benefit the listeners’ understanding of future policy decisions in any way. If ever America and New Mexico needed real “fact checkers” it is during every campaign season!
So, unfortunately, we have become a populace lulled into apathy, voting along family tradition, discouraged with the political theater that surrounds us, and demonized into accepting the dire straits we find ourselves in… Day after day and year after year.
New Mexico is today at the very bottom statistically in every worthwhile bracket. Oh, forgive me, we have our top brackets too: crime, abortion, drug trafficking, homelessness, homicides… Need I say more?!
We have an opportunity for change New Mexico. Instead of listening to slick political ads and slanted media coverage or outright omission, Do Some Homework! Study the issues and investigate the true values of all the candidates. You will find that “facts” change to suit the individual’s platform and audience at any given time. If you want more of the same then listen to the “facts” being presented by a two party system working together to say it’s so. Truth, however, is consistent day after day and it is passed time that New Mexico and America discovers the “Truth of the matter” in this year’s political environment.
Candidates are aggressively seeking monetary donations to support their campaigns, but it is time for an awakening to who these people truly are, both candidates and donors. There are so many special interests “investing” in their selected candidates, therefore, we need to invest “targeted intercession” as our campaign currency to influence the hearts of voters to support only those with righteous intent.
We need the camouflage of the Spirit as we engage in this battle, that we might ambush the enemy and thwart their evil plans. The battle is mine and the victory is mine says the Lord, but my people must humble themselves, repent, and pray if I am to heal their land.
It’s time to study to show yourself approved as you vote this November. Don’t be duped into the “same-o, same-o”. The future of New Mexico and the nation depends on You!
Blessings, Pastor Bill Ruhl “Papa Bill”
