(Newser) – Arizona's immigration law is going to make the state a safe haven for Democrats in the long term, blogs kos at Daily Kos. For proof, check out the latest Public Policy Polling survey of the governor's race, which shows Democrat Terry Goodard increasing his lead among Hispanics over GOP incumbent Jan Brewer from 20 points to 46.

"Arizona Latinos have gone, literally overnight, from being perhaps the most pro-GOP in the nation, to joining California as the most anti-GOP ones in the nation." What's worse for Republicans, whites will soon be a minority. "Within a decade, Arizona will be as reliably Democratic as California is today. And when that day arrives, we'll be able to trace it all to last Friday's passage of SB 1070."
