Another day, another gubernatorial poll

Public Policy Polling must be on the Goddard for Governor payroll. The little known pollster shows lone Democrat Samuel Pearson “Terry” Goddard, III, surging ahead by three whole points, leading incumbent Gov. Jan Brewer 47-44.

Mega impressive.

Signing SB 1070 appears to have upped her ante. Brewer, who was registering only 59% of the Republican vote in their previous poll, is now at 73%.

Goddard supposedly holds a more comfortable lead against the rest of the Republican field. The pollster claims he  leads Buz Mills 45-37, Dean Martin 47-36, and John Munger 46-31. In a hypothetical contest against Sheriff Joe Arpaio — who once again is dangling the I’m-thinking-of-running-for-governor carrot  — Goddard maintains a 47-44 advantage — identical to the one he posts against Brewer.

Overall, the poll resembles a day-old bowl of salsa, warm beer and soggy chip shards.  Not much to recommend it as a tasty morsel.  The pollster has a sidebar attribution to a Wall Street Journal ranking of PPP as one of the “top swing state pollsters” in the country in 2008.


We Arizonans have been so busy of late, we weren’t even aware we were swinging.

    Who did they poll? Illegals?

    You’ve got that right, Sherri! I’m glad the poll was described as it was in the post as dregs left over from a previous night’s party. Seeing Red AZ is onto this phoney survey, too.
