Vote 2010: Brewer gaining in poll despite poor debate performance

Posted: Updated:

Governor Jan Brewer's debate debacle hasn't hurt her chances of winning a full term in office of her own.

A new political poll shows Brewer picked up three points over democrat Terry Goddard after a week's worth of bad publicity over her stumbling performance.

The latest numbers from Rasmussen show Brewer leading the Attorney General 60% to 38%.

And the case of eleven green party candidates allegedly recruited by republicans goes before a judge in Phoenix on Thursday. He will consider a request by the Arizona Green Party to kick the candidates from the November ballot. The green and democratic parties say the candidates were recruited by republicans to siphon votes from democrats.
