Joe Arpaio's Favorability Rating "Falls" to (Sigh) 53 Percent

The birther probe was not a winner for Joe...

The good news? Sheriff Joe Arpaio's favorability rating has slipped, and his foray into the tin-foil hattery of the birthers is positively loathed by the public, with 65 percent of respondents expressing disapproval of the probe, and 54 percent expressing strong disapproval.

The bad news? Though Arpaio's ratings are down from a couple of years ago, he's still hanging in there at a 53 percent approval rating, better than can be boasted by Governor Jan Brewer, President Barack Obama, and Obama's GOP rival, Mitt Romney.

The survey of 600 likely county voters was done by the national polling firm Strategies 360, and commissioned by Citizens for a Better Arizona, the advocacy group responsible for the recall of ex-state Senate President Russell Pearce, which is working against both Pearce and Arpaio this election season.

Amazingly, despite the MCSO's botching of more than 400 sex crimes cases in El Mirage, Arpaio receives a 76 percent approval rating for being "tough on crime." (Do these people read the news, or what?) He gets far less approval for subjects such as "Being a good steward of taxpayer dollars" (46 percent) and "Keeping politics out of law enforcement" (43 percent).

But his approval ratings take a major dive when it comes to his asinine investigation into President Obama's birth certificate. As you might expect, Democrats really hate the birther mess, by a whopping 88 percent, according to the crosstabs. But more GOPers dislike it than you might imagine. The poll shows 44 percent disapproval among the tuskers.

I bet Arpaio's Cell Partners "Approval Ratings" would score him very high!

 

If only the "Guilty" verdict came with the well earned Jail Time, I bet Pinky Arpaio's Cell Block Dance Card would be very, very Full.

ArpaioFan - Read the Goldwater Institute report "Mission Unaccomplished".  Then read the East Valley Tribune's Pulitzer Prize winning series "Reasonable Doubt".  Then Google Munnell Memo and read it too.  Then give me a call to see if you're still an Arpaio fan.

"Mr. arpaiofan" - A basic lesson in legal terminology, not that your LSD-soaked brain will notice; slander has to do with verbal statements that tend to diminish a persons reputation, either professionally or privately. What you needed to write was you hope New Times gets sued for libel, which is the written type of diminution of reputation.

Perhaps, instead of LSD as your pharmaceutical of choice, you need to switch to bath salts. Your use of logic might actually improve!

How sad that human beings in any state would approve child molestation by 53%. That's essentially what his kool-aid crowd is saying. How many of these sickos pretended to be disturbed by what happened at Penn State? Hypocrytes!!

I've got an idea.  Since all you Arpaio haters are so against our laws being followed, how about if your name and address gets published so that a Home Invader can burst through your door and when you call police they simply ignore you.

 @brmorris65 funny how these assclowns dont know the difference between spoken words like saying to someone's face they are an asshat (which causes them to lose business if it isn't true and can be proven) versus typing or writing something in a newspaper which would be libel. And BTW while on the subject, I think that trolls on NT that are pro-Joke should be considered to be libelous.

@JoeArpaioFan How about if sexual predators get your address, burst through your door and rape you, your spouse and your children? How's that for an idea? There are laws against that but the shurf and his deputies ignored that. Three-hundred and fifty times. Oh, then there's the 40,000 warrants for violent criminals they ignored as well. Which of them might burst through YOUR door? Feel safer now, moron? Yeah, I didn't think so!

 @arpaiofan Sadly, the fact is that the people who hate Arpaio the most are law abiding citizens who want to see justice done. That's why we get upset about the 400+ sex crimes that never got investigated under Arpaio's watch. Instead, our tax payer dollars go into investigating whether the president is an american citizen or not, which is outside of the County Sheriff's jurisdiction.

 @ernie13x  @JoeArpaioFan If anybody ever burst through my door I would shoot them on the spot..  I would then bury their dead body or bodies in the desert and wouldn't even call police because chances are if the suspects were to be Hispanic I would be deemed a racist for shooting them.  It's just too bad that more people don't arm themselves and take matters into their own hands.  I'd like to know how you came up with 40,00 warrants for violent criminals that are being ignored because I'm sure you would find that the majority of those warrants are in the hands of Phoenix PD or neighboring law enforcement agency other that the MCSO.  Actually I feel safer in Phoenix than I do here in California.

 @azlefty It's too bad that the illegal aliens don't want to follow the laws.  Illegal aliens and supporters of illegal aliens like yourself think though that there is nothing wrong with coming here without papers and without a green card.  I'd say that is not following the law whether it is a civil infraction, a misdemeanor or a felony.  So let;'s talk about who is not following the law.

 @HaddieNuff I don't know about that but I can tell you that if Phoenix New Times continues to publish false accusations against Arpaio, his deputies or anybody else, the writers could be sued for slander.  And they should be.  And if there is a court order for them to turn over their information, they must.

@liveandletliveBoy what a negative person you are.  You just don't like the fact that anybody corrects you and tells you like it is.  It's easy to talk about Arpaio behind his back if you think you can hide behind the anonymity of the internet but I bet you wouldn't have that same attitude if you were a guest in his jail.

robert_graham

 @jjmauls But I'm sure you wouldn't have minded if Arpaio paid for a Latino community center or put the money in your pocket or in the pockets of other liberals because you people disapprove of money being spent unless it benefits you.  Of course you are angry that the President whom you consider to be the Messiah is investigated.  I'm sure you wouldn't have cared if Romney or a Republican was investigated instead.  If that were the case you'd insist he spend the money.  But about those sex crimes, they are being investigated but if you really want the process sped up, call the feds because sex crimes are their specialty.

Of course you don't know - if you actually bothered to read, you wouldn't support Arpaio.

I don't care if Obama is gone come the Nov elections, it won't make Joe an effective sheriff.

 

Focus, dear child, focus.

 

We're discussing two issues:

 

1) How Joe has failed us as a sheriff, and

 

2) How simpletons like you buy into his demonstratively false claims about immigration.

 

With each post you prove that you have no clue what is going on. 

robert_graham

 @TruConserv Arpaio doesn't deport anybody. he turns them over to ICE and they do the deportations.  I think you are wrong though.  But if it is true what you are saying, then the feds better get off their ass and do their job or there just may be Civil unrest.

 

Regardless though, in November a new President will be elected who is a Republican that will force ICE to do its job or he might disband them.  Because if they do not do what they were established to do, what's the use of having them?  A lot of things will be changing come election time.

TruConserv
TruConserv

 @JoeArpaioFan I already have told you, just as the Feds have already told Arpaio, just as the court will be telling him shortly.

 

1) It's a federal civil issue.  Obama has deported more people in less than four years than any modern President did in eight. Obama has doubled the boots on the border. The Fed is doing its job, no matter the lies you have heard and repeated.

 

2) No one complained when Arpaio's deputies, in the usual and ordinary course of their work, detained unauthorized immigrants and turned them over to the Feds.  The complaints came when Arpaio started doing immigration sweeps that (a) were predicated on racial profiling, (b) violated the rights of US citizens and (c) allowed real criminals to go free because deputies were tasked to chase dish washers, not pedophiles and the like.

 

It's that simple.  It's not about people who want open borders and don't want immigration laws enforces. It's about people who love freedom, respect the equality of all men and demand accountability from their elected officials.

 

Arpaio has failed by any objective measure of what makes for a good sheriff.  His foray into federal immigration issues is all just a rouse so that he can tell ignorant voters that any one who dislikes him must love "illegal immigration."

 

It's a lie, one that simps like you repeat far to easily.

 

We hate Arpaio because his jails are poorly managed, run by drug gangs and inherently dangerous. A good sheriff would respect that most his prisoners where simply awaiting trial and deserved to be treated "innocent until proven guilty,"

 

We hate Arpaio because HIS bad acts have cost us some $100 million and his bad accounting has cost us another $100 million.

 

We hate Arpaio because he let more than 400 cases of child and sexual abuse go without investigation and without justice for the victims.

 

We hate Arpaio because he uses his office as a cudgel to go after his political enemies, abusing the sacred system of American laws and jurisprudence for his personal political vengeance.

 

We hate Arpaio for his blatant appeals to racism, race-baiting and scapegoating.

 

We hate Arpaio because he had failed to keep us safe, failed to do his job, failed to properly prioritize his work and failed at being a decent human being.

 

More exist, but even a simp like you should see the point: it's not that any one supports unlawful immigration, it's that we all want a real sheriff, one who actually is willing to do his job.

 @TruConserv And what would be the right way to enforce immigration laws?  Would it be giving each illegal alien caught a room in a nice motel or hotel in lieu of detention, a full-course meal complete with a Mariachi band and then a ride back to their home country in a limo?  You tell me.

TruConserv

 @JoeArpaioFan It's Joe and guys like you that don't want to follow the law. That's why Joe is in court all the time - getting his arse kicked the same way you get yours kicked here - but it's taxpayers like me that pick up the tab for his lawlessness.

 

No one here is opposed to enforcing immigration law, we just want it enforced properly, without racial profiling, without illegal searches, without violating the rights of US citizens.

 

What part of illegal don't you understand?

 

We want a real conservative sheriff who will actually go after criminals. Who will keep pedophiles off the streets, not empower them to stay on them. We want a Sheriff who can do his job and follow the law.

 

We want a sheriff who actually takes personal accountability seriously.

 

Why don't you?

There you go with your obsession again. More than 32 posts so far today. You're on schedule to eclipse the more than 40 yesterday.

 

I understand you've decided to post until 'things change' here. However, prolific meaningless assertions attempting to sway those with more reasoned arguments is not going to succeed. 

 

Yes, you appear to be gripped, day after day after day, with a compulsive preoccupation to post and the belief that you're both right and persuasive, when in fact you're neither.

 

You might want to see a professional about that, especially since obsessive behavior is often accompanied by symptoms of anxiety.

 

Perhaps you should step away from your computer.

@JoeArpaioFan

Mr. Kent. I see you've changed your profile. At last count you were well over 30 posts today. Not only do you appear as obsessive compulsive, but based on the content of your posts I believe you're delusional as well.

 

The ol' "I'm right and your wrong" argument doesn't carry much weight, but then again based on the level of discourse you engage in on these comment pages, it's clear you're a light weight and someone better to just ignore.

 

Consider yourself ignored.
