Surge: Arizona Governor Brewer's Approval Rises 16 Points

Looks like Nazism, fascism, Jim Crow and apartheid is overwhelmingly popular in Arizona. Despite the media and Barack Obama's best efforts to misinform the public, the good people of Arizona aren't listening.

Can you say blowback, boys and girls?
Last week, Arizona Governor Jan Brewer signed an immigration law that launched a national debate. It has also at least temporarily helped her own chances of remaining Arizona’s governor.

A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of likely voters in the state shows that 56% now approve of the way Brewer is performing her role as governor. Two weeks ago, just 40% offered their approval.

The new figure includes 22% who Strongly Approve of the governor’s performance. That’s up from five percent (5%) before Brewer signed the law that authorizes local police to stop and verify the immigration status of anyone they suspect of being an illegal immigrant.

The bounce in the polls is also evident in new numbers on the November election. If Brewer is the Republican nominee, she would get 48% of the vote while her likely Democratic opponent, State Attorney General Terry Goddard, would attract 40%. Two weeks ago, it was Brewer 44% and Goddard 40%. Goddard is an outspoken opponent of the new law.

As with all poll bounces, it remains to be seen whether this is a temporary spike in support for the governor or if it signifies a lasting change in the race.

Data on the immigration law itself will be released soon. The law is popular with the state’s voters, and a plurality believe it will be good for the state’s economy. The numbers indicate anger at the federal government rather than illegal immigrants.
Well, that isn't good for the leftwing haters trying to portray supporters of the law as racists.

H/T Allahpundit.

Back to the drawing board.

Governor Brewer is a lot more popular in Arizona than Barack Obama is nationwide. No wonder he's acting like such a baby.

The most recent poll numbers for Obama in Arizona were even more bleak.
A new statewide poll shows 41 percent of Arizonans approve of the way Barack Obama is performing as U.S. president. That is compared with a 47 percent approval rating for George W. Bush at same point in his second term, in 2005. Bush ended his presidency with a 31 percent Arizona approval rating, according to
That story was from April 3. I'd suggest his numbers are even lower today after all his misinformed demagoguery.
