Republican Governor Jan Brewer continues to maintain a double-digit lead over Democratic challenger Terry Goddard in her reelection effort in Arizona.
The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in Arizona finds Brewer with 55% support to Goddard’s 39%. Three percent (3%) prefer some other candidate in the race, and another three percent (3%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
The race remains Solid Republican in the Rasmussen Reports Election 2010 Gubernatorial Scorecard.
A month ago, Brewer, who has been boosted by her championing of the state’s new immigration law in the face of strong media criticism and a U.S. Justice Department challenge, held a 60% to 38% lead. Goddard, the state’s current attorney general, is an opponent of the immigration law.
The survey of 500 Likely Voters in Arizona was conducted on October 3, 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.
Republican incumbent John McCain holds a 21-point lead over Democrat Rodney Glassman in Arizona's U.S. Senate race.
