I want to correct something said above that most Arizonans love our legislature. Not true, in fact completely the opposite: Arizona Republic
—Poll: Arizonans not hot on lawmakers http://www.azcentral.com/community/pinal/articles/2012/03/30/20120330arizonans-lawmakers-poll.html
A new statewide poll released Friday indicated Arizonans may not be too hot on their state lawmakers.
Those surveyed indicated they felt 34 percent of lawmakers were performing poorly while 35 percent rated their work as "just fair" and 29 percent thought lawmakers were doing well.
Gov. Jan Brewer fared better, but most respondents -- 52 percent -- gave her a "just fair" or "poor" rating.
Most of the respondents identified themselves as Republican.
The statewide poll was conducted by Lake Research Partners on behalf of Arizona Working Families Coalition, which advocates for legislation to benefit public employees and others. Pollsters surveyed 400 voters between March 26 and March 28. The poll's margin of error is plus or minus 4.9 percentage points. The poll also found:
76 percent of respondents said they support the current personnel law compared with Brewer's proposal. Under Brewer's plan for a massive overhaul of the state's personnel system, it would be easier to fire or terminate certain employees.
40 percent of respondents wanted lawmakers' priorities to focus on job creation and improving education; 9 percent said lawmakers' priorities should be to change the current hiring and firing process for public employees.
