Rasmussen Report just released this poll
Arizona Governor Jan Brewer, following her signing and passionate defense of the stateâ€™s new immigration law, now claims 45% of the vote in the stateâ€™s Republican Primary field. Thatâ€™s a 19-point gain from a month ago and puts her well ahead of all her challengers...In March, Brewer, Martin and Mills [her opponents] were in a three-way tie, each attracting about 20% of GOP voters....In late April, 64% of Arizona voters supported the new immigration law despite criticism of it by President Obama and others. Among GOP voters, support stood at 87%.
Brewer`s revival seems to be almost a repeat of California Governor Pete Wilson`s 1994 resurrection after he embraced Proposition 187
and parallels Steve Poizner`s current dramatic surge
in the California gubernatorial primary. (All otherwise "moderate"

will get the message. Maybe
