POLL: Arizonans Overwhelmingly Reject Obama's Broken Promises

More evidence today that President Obama is deeply unpopular in Arizona because of his track record of broken promises from a new Rasmussen Poll that shows Governor Romney leading 54% to 41%.

“A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in Arizona shows Romney with 54% support to President Obama's 41%. Three percent (3%) prefer some other candidate, while two percent (2%) remain undecided.”

Senate candidate Richard Carmona has also been running away from President Obama recently, declaring that he will not attend the Democratic National Convention, despite the fact that he was hand-picked to run by Obama.

Arizona Senate Candidate Richard Carmona Announced He Would Not Attend The Democratic National Convention. “Heitkamp joins a growing list of Democratic Senate candidates opting out of Charlotte, including Arizona Senate candidate Richard Carmona, Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., Sen. Jon Tester, D-Mont., and Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va.” (Julie Sobel, “Heitkamp Skipping Dem Convention,” National Journal, 6/26/12)

FLASHBACK: President Obama Personally Lobbied Carmona To Enter The Senate Race. “President Barack Obama called former U.S. Surgeon General Richard Carmona last month to urge him to run for Senate in Arizona, two Democratic sources told POLITICO. The call signals that Obama is engaged in recruiting a strong Senate candidate in a state Democrats have eyed as a presidential battleground.” (Alexander Burns, “Obama Courts Arizona Senate Candidate, May Contest State 'Heavily',” Politico, 10/6/11)

The signs are clear – Arizonans are overwhelmingly rejecting President Obama’s broken promises and failed leadership on the economy.
