Arizonans Give Governor High Rating for Job Performance

According to a KAET poll, 79% of registered voters in Arizona rate Janet Napolitano's performance as very good or good.
Sixteen percent gave her a negative rating. Almost two-thirds (63 percent) of the Republicans interviewed gave the governor a good performance rating, as did 95 percent of the Democrats and 80 percent of the political independents.

The survey also found that 56 percent of those interviewed felt the legislators who recently completed their 2005 legislative session did a good job. Thirty percent gave the legislators poor marks and 14 percent said they had no opinion. Seventy-four percent of the Republicans, 60 percent of the political independents and 58 percent of the Democrats gave the legislature positive marks. Voters over 65 tended to be less supportive of the legislators than younger voters.

Voters tended to support the governor's decision to veto several bills passed earlier this spring by the Arizona Legislature. The most support for a gubernatorial veto came over a bill that would have allowed patrons to carry guns into bars, as long as they were not drinking. Seventy-nine percent agreed with the governor 's veto of that bill. Seventeen percent opposed the veto and 4 percent were undecided. There also was strong support for the governor's decision to veto a bill that would have allowed pharmacists the right to refuse to fill prescriptions if it would violate their moral principles related to birth control and contraception. Sixty-five percent supported the veto, 28 percent were opposed and 7 percent had no opinion.

24% of the respondents were registered independent, giving more creedence to the notion that Arizona is definitely a swing state.


This Thursday many Arizonan's will converge on the State Capital to ask for a full investigation into the Downing Street memo. And we are hoping others across the USA will do the same. Please let me know if there is anyway I can get you to help get the word out about this. I am sorry it is so last minute but we weren't sure that Conyers could get the signatures he needed to do this! If you have any questions you can email me and I will do my best to answer them.
Thank you for reading this email.

June 16th 2005- Arizona Capital Building.

On June 16th 2005 at 2:00 it is our hope that hundreds will join us at the state capital building. To help support John Conyers call for an investigation into the Downing Street Memo!

As many of you know it has been over 37 days since rep. John Conyers and 88 other members of congress sent a request for an investigation into the Downing Street Memo. This Earth-shattering memo REQUIRES Americas attention. While the news media largely ignores this problem, it is vital that America’s people do not. It remains the DUTY of each and every American citizen to hold this administration responsible.
Over 1600 American soldiers are dead, and more than 12,000 are wounded, and the Iraqi CIVILIAN body count is massive! And we now have credible proof that this war was a lie, that it was manufactured from the beginning, which if true IS AN IMPEACHABLE OFFENSE under article II section 4 of the United States Construction.
On June 16th 2005 at 2:00 we will walk on the Capital of the state of Arizona, in a show of support and solidarity with those marching in Washington DC at the very same time. At that time it is our earnest hope that our voices will combine into a noise big enough to be heard by our leaders, and our media. WE NEED YOU THERE! Please RSVP at Back2commonsense@AOL.com
