There's Something I Still Don't Get

How the heck is New Mexico still bluer than some north east states? The polls at RealClear have been pretty consistent at around 10 and 11 points with no movement from any of the debates. This is a state which had tiny margins in the 2000 and 2004 elections (and they voted for Bush in 2004) before voting big for Obama in 2008. And considering how Hope and Change has been wearing off in other states I would say that makes an 11 point lead in New Mexico kind of suspicious.
