New Mexico Business Leaders Survey

Poll Results

This survey research study was commissioned by the Committee for Economic Development. The research objectives are to assess New Mexico business leaders’ perceptions of the influence of money in politics, campaign finance reform and transparency, the effects of crony capitalism on government corruption, and proposals the New Mexico state Legislature may consider to change transparency laws and the campaign finance system. This study tracks results to the 2015 and 2016 studies, where applicable.

New Mexico’s business leaders were also asked to rate their level of support for proposals that the state Legislature may consider adopting. Consistent with the previous studies, the vast majority of leaders support each proposal tested. In fact, support for each proposal has risen since the previous studies.
