Governor Martinez has some surprising support outside of her party.

KOB Eyewitness News conducted a survey in collaboration with Survey USA and found 66 percent of New Mexicans are happy with the job she is doing. She fairs well with both men, 62 percent approval, and women, 70 percent approval.

But not everyone is please with Martinez’s performance. Some New Mexicans are still disappointed with the way she handled Hollywood and her choice for secretary of education.

Martinez’s popularity even crosses party lines, 64 percent of independents say they like what she is doing and 44 percent of democrats are pleased with her work as governor.
