Wonder what you would find if you frisked Arizona Governor Jan Brewer’s job approval after signing an immigration law that has sparked a national debate?
Answer: Her popularity increased… A lot!
Who would have every thought? Apparently President Obama, Al Sharpton, and the liberal mainstream media cannot stop this movement as much as they decide to rant on about it. Unfortunately for them, 70% of Arizona voters agree with new immigration legislation. Therefore, Gov. Brewer’s poll numbers have soared dramatically.
Rasmussen Report has the latest:
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.
Continue to pout and demonize the opposition Democrats and liberal mainstream media. It doesn’t matter how many times you try to compare this immigration law to “Nazi Germany”, because the argument simply doesn’t hold any water. Hey… Couldn’t you make the same argument about Obama-Care and its federal mandate? The Obama Administration and IRS will eventually force every single American to provide proof that they have health insurance. What’s the difference? Well besides the fact that no where in the Constitution does it say we HAVE to purchase a product/service to be an American citizen, but it’s the job of the federal government to protect our borders. Let’s just ignore all that… Right liberals?
