Rasmussen: Brewer Leads Goddard; Arizonans Pessmistic About the Future

Posted By on Mon, Aug 30, 2010 at 10:14 AM

Rasmussen has new numbers on the Arizona governor's race:

A new Rasmussen Reports statewide telephone survey finds Brewer leading Goddard by a 57% to 38% margin. That’s little changed from a month ago and two months ago. Just three percent (3%) prefer another candidate while five percent (3%) are undecided.

Another tidbit:

Most Arizona voters (56%) believe that Brewer’s views are in the political mainstream while just 35% view them as extreme. For Goddard, the numbers are 44% mainstream and 35% extreme.

Eighty percent (80%) view Brewer as politically conservative, including 44% who say she’s Very Conservative.

Fifty-three percent (53%) see Goddard as politically liberal while another 27% say he’s a moderate.

Sixty-five percent (65%) approve of the way Brewer is handling her job as Governor. That’s a remarkable improvement from 41% in March, a turnaround that highlights

the impact associated with signing the state’s much talked about immigration law.

President Barack Obama, a vigorous opponent of the state’s immigration law, earns approval from 39% of the state’s voters.

And there's a lot of pessimism out there:

In Arizona, 38% of the state’s voters rate their own personal finances as good or excellent while 18% say poor. Seventeen percent (17%) say their finances are getting better. However, most (55%) hold the opposite view and say their finances are getting worse.

Read the whole thing here. And remain a bit skeptical, since Rasmussen has its share of critics.
