Arizona Digs In

Repeated attacks on the citizens of Arizona by President Obama and many others have done nothing to dim Arizona’s support for immigration law enforcement. On the contrary: a remarkable 71 percent of Arizona voters now support that state’s new immigration law, up from 64 percent last month. And Governor Jan Brewer has jumped out to a 13-point lead over her likely Democratic opponent, which means that she is doing far better with the electorate than–to take just one example–Barack Obama. That’s not surprising; voters like executives who actually support and defend the people who elected them.
