It is very conservative in all of eastern NM just like eastern Colorado as the whole region is. It's next to West Texas and Oklahoma which is highly conservative.
Santa Fe and Taos are very liberal as are areas of Albuquerque and Las Cruces and Silver City is moderately liberal too.
That being said i believe folks are less concerned about those issues as i never hear or read about gay people being assulted or attacked in NM.
New Mexico as a whole is a Moderate state.
