Why no one should be surprised Arizona Governor Jan Brewer’s lead in the polls increased after her debate disaster

Many have become perplexed over an actual increase in popularity of Arizona’s Governor, Jan Brewer, when she blew the recent debate with Democratic candidate, Terry Goddard. Some thought it would show Brewer in her real light as being completely unprepared and incompetent to run the state. The Dunning Letter also held this opinion. Then, lo and behold, she gets a three point increase. But there is an answer

Arizona universities rank in the lower half of those nationwide, according to a Forbes magazine and the Center for College Affordability and Productivity evaluation. Out of 610 undergraduate programs, the U. of Arizona was 339, AZ State U. 382 and No. AZ U. 460. It is entirely possible that the 60 percent of voters who support Brewer over Goddard, went to one of these schools.

Brewer didn’t go to any of them. As a matter of fact, she holds no degree, as should be evident by the atrocious grammar she used in the debate. But there is one more possibility raised by Terry Goddard:

"This is a Rasmussen poll that asks us to believe something that is almost impossible to believe, and that is she picked up support after her horrifyingly bad performance," he said. "I can't understand it. The poll itself has to be flawed."

The Dunning Letter likes the other option best. That 60 percent has had too many bowls of stupid to see beyond Arizona’s new immigration law, SB1070, which, when signed by Brewer, sent her ratings soaring. If she does get elected, it will be interesting to see just how long it will take this bunch to realize what they have done.
