Is Arizona Out of Reach for Democrats?

The Hotline: "The White House continues to talk about its ability to contest Arizona, but polling data suggest otherwise -- and underscores the fact that immigration right now is a losing issue for President Obama and Democrats... While the Hispanic growth in the state is significant, the percentage of those who are registered is relatively low - and there have been few signs of any significant uptick in political participation. The numbers also provide a cautionary tale to the party's likely Senate nominee, Richard Carmona, who is an attractive recruit because of his Hispanic heritage, but could lose support from white voters over his opposition to SB 1070... There was a good reason why Janet Napolitano didn't run for Senate -- her involvement in the White House's lawsuit against the state immigration law would have handicapped her campaign from the start."
