Jan Brewer Jumps Ahead In Polls, Except With Latinos

New numbers released today by Rocky Mountain Poll show that Arizona Gov Jan Brewer’s anti-immigrant tactics are paying off for her across the state. In a poll the company conducted of 524 voters in the week before July 11, Brewer’s got a 20-point lead in front of Attorney General Terry Goddard, the Democratic frontrunner. But look at the numbers broken down by race and Goddard has a strong lead against Brewer among Latino respondents–58 to 16 percent. In fact, Goddard keeps his lead by a margin of two to one among other non-Latino people of color, too.
