New Mexico vote completed, Bush still on top

Rodger Payne forwards us the following news from New Mexico. Results won't be certified until Tuesday, with President Bush still the winner... with a margin of 6,047 votes according to Tuesday's Associated Press tally. The President's lead thus narrowed considerably with the counting of the provisional ballots, yet not close enough for hopeful Dems. (Those 5 electoral votes wouldn't have turned over the election. But they certainly would have made Bill Richardson do a little jig in the middle of Santa Fe.)

And there were some smaller turnovers: in Dona Ana County, where Bush was the Election Day leader, Kerry edged out the president in the final count with 51 percent of the vote.)
