Arizona’s Immigration Law Is Polling Well . . . in Pennsylvania

Out from Quinnipiac this morning:

Pennsylvania Attorney General Tom Corbett, the Republican candidate for Governor, has a 44 – 37 percent lead over Allegheny County Executive Dan Onorato, the Democrat, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today. 

This compares to a 43 – 37 percent Corbett lead in a May 13 survey by the independent Quinnipiac University. In this latest survey, independent voters back Corbett 44 – 29 percent, as do Republicans 86 – 4 percent.  Democrats back Onorato 69 – 13 percent.

Pennsylvania voters say 47 – 34 percent they want the state to adopt an immigration law similar to that of Arizona.  Voters approve 52 – 27 percent of the Arizona law and by 60 – 27 percent they think the Obama Administration’s lawsuit to block its implementation is a bad idea.

One of my poll-watching readers wrote in yesterday:

Did you check this headline out in the New York Times, “Governors Voice Grave Concerns on Immigration”? Or as Drudge teased it, “Obama Suit vs. AZ is ‘Toxic.’”’  As I stated before this, hubris will be Obama’s undoing, and as I have said before I am in the moderate camp on this subject.  Secure our border, verify security, then begin process of amnesty.  The GOP is playing all of this close to the vest now.  But when they actually play it out come election time the dam will break.  Frankly the dam should have broken already, but the media is doing everything possible to not allow any negatives be “confidently reported.”  However, when the campaign begins, that will all change as the media no longer controls the information wave; and you wonder why Obama was so angered by the Supreme Court’s decision on campaign finance reform.
