Sheriff Arpaio defends latest raids, derides appointment efforts; poll shows he’s more popular than Obama in Arizona

Good article in the Phoenix Business Journal. An excerpt on the latest poll -

A recent poll by Rasmussen Reports shows Arpaio remains popular among Arizona voters -- more popular than President Barack Obama.

Sixty-eight percent of state voters have a favorable view of Arpaio, compared with a 53 percent approval rating for Obama and 57 percent for new Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer.

Forty-seven percent disapprove of Obama’s performance during his first months in office, compared with a 37 percent disapproval rate for Brewer and 26 percent for Arpaio.
