Brewer cites new poll in SB1070 support
As Arizona Governor Jan Brewer claimed a new poll shows that more Americans support SB1070 as she departs for Washington, D.C. to defend the bill in front of the Supreme Court.
Brewer cited a poll, conducted by Fox News, that was conducted nationally from April 9 to April 12, 2012 among registered voters.
"Now, that support is crystal clear in a new, national public-opinion poll in which Americans favor SB 1070 by a 65-31 margin," said Brewer in a press release. "That support is up 15 points from when the pollster last checked in summer 2010 - meaning that the more people learn about SB 1070, the more they like it."
Brewer said that, though public opinion is nice, SB1070 was signed into law because it was the "right thing to do."
