Arizona’s Republican credentials are pretty secure. It’s one of the most conservative states in the US.
But in recent polling by lib-leaning Public Policing Polling, Democratic President Barack Obama topped former GOP VP candidate Palin for President among Arizona voters, besting her by 49-41%.
“If you want a measure of how much Barack Obama’s stock has risen and how much
Sarah Palin’s has fallen in the wake of their reactions to the Arizona shooting this is a
good one,” said Dean Debnam, President of Public Policy Polling. “Obama would not
only snag a rare Democratic win in Arizona if he got to match up with her, but he would
do so by a wide margin.”
