Yesterday, conservative pollster Scott Rasmussen released a poll showing that despite Governor Jan Brewer's brain fart during the gubernatorial debate last week, her poll numbers have somehow gone up.

You've probably already seen Jan's infamous moment of silence, but for good measure (and because we just can't get enough of it), we'll show it to you again after the jump.

According to the poll, Brewer now leads her Democratic opponent, Attorney General Terry Goddard, with 60 percent of the vote to Goddard's 38 percent.

A similar poll conducted about two weeks ago showed Brewer leading the race with 57 percent to Goddard's 38 percent.

Given Rasmussen's affinity for snap, robo-call polls, and his apparent love of seeing his name in the headlines (that and we just can't believe Brewer's brain fart did anything to help her poll numbers), we're taking the results with healthy helping of salt. But we want to know what you think: are you buyin' the results of Rasmussen's poll?

Vote -- and see the results of yesterday's poll -- below.

Yesterday's poll question: Should beer-robbery suspects face criminal charges?

- 11.49 percent say yes.

- 39.08 percent say no.

- 49.43 percent say they should be given a medal.
