Goddard is doing better than expected, given that Brewer's gotten all the positive attention and won her primary going away.

If you say so.

It's not exactly as if the state of Arizona is Idaho when it comes to the number of Democratic voters. Obama got 44.9% of the vote in Arizona in 2008. Kerry got 44.4% in 2004. Gore got 44.7% in 2000. Clinton got 46.5% in 1996 and actually won the state that year. On top of that, a Democrat has won the last two elections for governor. So, for the current Democratic candidate for governor to be polling in the high thirties against the incumbent Republican who has a pretty hardcore right-wing reputation, is not all that impressive. At least not to this right-wing partisan hack.

Brewer has been condemned by Amnesty International, and condemned by the Hague, condemned by the World court, and comdemned by me. I honestly am disappointed in Arizona voters that they have turned to drastic steps to arrest, and harrass people who could be illegals. What really bothered me was those two escaped convicts who were in a minimum privatized prison and the state has had other instances of dangerous criminals escaping from minimum security prisons. This is just an outrage.

If Arizona can't properly keep it's own criminals locked up, how in the world will they have the rescources to enforce their new law.

I don't really understand how anyone can argue against the AZ bill. Why is it wrong to want to keep illegals out of the country? I have no problem allowing people to LEGALLY become citizens and enter this country through work permits or programs like that, but we (the taxpayers) are paying large amounts of money to keep illegal immigrants in this nation - school, hospitals, law fees....I really don't understand a single defense against removing illegal immigrants.

I do, however, understand the main argument against the AZ bill is that it profiles. This is wrong....

The BILL does NOT profile. If there is any illegal profiling against alleged illegal immigrants, it's because the cop is bad and is profiling, not the bill.

Like I said, illegal immigration is a problem, but why the hell don't more politicians, especially law and order Republicans seriously penalize those who exploit illegals by hiring them? I live near a rural part of NY and there are farmers even in upstate NY who employ illegals, and I certainly hope that Andrew Cuomo when elected will hit these people hard. They encourage these people and break the law.

Brewer is going to fail, not because she wants to round them up, but how can she prosecute them, and aren't the Arizona prisons already full? Arresting illegals is just the first step, but how is it going to solve the problem? They will come right back into the country again.

Man, when will the Californians move in in droves and make the state right politically? Ive been waiting like 20 years for Arizona to go purple and everytime it gets close some idiot Democrat at the federal level screws it up and some far-right nutjob at the state level excites the radical fringe. Hurry up Arizona. Texas might go purple first. How does that make you feel?
