Arizona Governor Jan Brewer continues to enjoy a solid lead over Democrat Terry Goddard heading into the fall campaign season.
A new Rasmussen Reports statewide telephone survey finds Brewer leading Goddard by a 57% to 38% margin. Thatâ€™s little changed from a month ago and two months ago. Just three percent (3%) prefer another candidate while five percent (3%) are undecided.
The race remains Solid Republican in the Rasmussen Reports Election 2010 Gubernatorial Scorecard. Following Election Day this November, Republicans are projected to hold a majority of the Governors around the country.
This is the first poll conducted since Brewer formally wrapped up her partyâ€™s nomination in last weekâ€™s primary. However, her major primary opponents had dropped out of the race earlier as the incumbentâ€™s popularity soared following passage of the stateâ€™s much talked about immigration law.
Most Arizona voters (56%) believe that Brewerâ€™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 sheâ€™s Very Conservative.
Fifty-three percent (53%) see Goddard as politically liberal while another 27% say heâ€™s a moderate.
Sixty-five percent (65%) approve of the way Brewer is handling her job as Governor. Thatâ€™s a remarkable improvement from 41% in March, a turnaround that highlights the impact associated with signing the stateâ€™s much talked about immigration law.
President Barack Obama, a vigorous opponent of the stateâ€™s immigration law, earns approval from 39% of the stateâ€™s voters.
The survey of 500 Likely Voters in Arizona was conducted on August 25, 2010 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 4.5 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology.
