Polls, polls and more polls
Lately everyone has been trying to gauge what the electorate will do in the 2010 elections. A recent polled released on Tuesday by Rasmussen showed Goddard beating Brewer 42% to 35%, with 21% undecided. However, the poll also showed Republican gubernatorial hopeful Fife Symington and current Republican Governor Jan Brewer about equal in their popularity with the Republican Party. This is an early indication that she could have difficulties getting out of the Republican primary.

On the federal front, the same poll showed 75% of Republicans thought Senator John McCain would win re-election. He also had a statewide approval rating of about 56%, which is quite high considering that nationally about 74% of voters believe their representative in Congress has lost touch.

To special session or to not special session
Several agencies left with partial budgets due to the veto of SB 1025 have made a plea with the governor's office and the legislature to come back into special session to address their needs. However, there seems to be little to no will from members to come back in. The legislature believes that the governor can move around funds to address the agencies' short-term needs, and the governor's office has stated that she does not want to call another special session unless they have already reached a deal.
