    He polled very competitively against Flake several months ago and still has decent favorables. He easily won 2 terms as attorney general and lost in 2010 mainly because he was up against a fairly popular (like it or not) GOP incumbent in a very red year. Carmona may have a higher ceiling than Goddard, but a few months ago he was completely unproven as a candidate. So far he has done better than expected, but there is still a long way to go.

      until that anti-immigration law was passed, and they voted for her in spite of her demonstrating that she was an idiot who totally blanked at a debate and made up shit. I'm supposed to give Goddard a pass for losing to that kind of terrible opponent, even in 2010? I sure hope the people of Arizona are less stupid in 2012 than they were in 2010, because they - collectively, not as individuals - deserve to be insulted for having reelected Ms. Stupid.

      But I have to admit that Floridians, having elected an actual criminal as Governor, stand perhaps a bit more than an even chance of reelecting President Obama and probably at least a 60% chance of reelecting Senator Nelson, so maybe even some of the (re)elections of complete jokes in 2010 should be considered flukes, to some extent.
