Rasmussen: Brewer Leads Goddard, 52% To 39%

Posted By on Fri, May 21, 2010 at 8:28 AM

Rasmussen releases a new poll showing that Republican Gov. Jan Brewer is ahead of Democratic Attorney General Terry Goddard in the governor's race:

After championing her state’s new immigration law in the face of criticism from President Obama and others, incumbent Arizona Governor Jan Brewer for the first time now attracts more than 50% support in her bid for reelection against likely Democratic candidate Terry Goddard.

The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in Arizona shows Brewer with 52% of the vote and Goddard, who opposes the immigration law, with 39%. Seven percent (7%) prefer another candidate, while just three percent (3%) are undecided.

Arizona voters now support the new immigration law more than ever, with 71% who favor it versus just 24% who are opposed.

Brewer captures 69% of the votes of those who favor the law. Goddard, the state’s attorney general, earns 91% support from those who oppose it.

The survey shows that Goddard was essentially even with two other potential GOP candidates, State Treasurer Dean Martin and attorney John Munger. But he's losing to Buzz Mills, the wealthy businessman making his first foray into politics.

Details from the poll here.

A Public Policy Polling survey in April showed that Goddard was ahead in a close race. A Research 2000 poll earlier this month also showed Goddard ahead.

Whatever numbers you want to believe now, it's a long way to Election Day.
