All eyes were on Arizona -- again -- yesterday as protesters for and against Arizona's controversial, new immigration law flooded the streets outside of the federal courthouse in downtown Phoenix.

As seven people were arrested outside, inside a federal judge heard arguments about why she should or shouldn't grant an injunction while lawyers hash out the constitutionality of the new law.

Jan Brewer even showed up for the fun.

The new law is set to take effect next Thursday, but the judge hasn't made a ruling yet -- nor has she indicated when she will. But a little speculation never hurt anyone, so we want to know what you think: will the judge grant the temporary injunction.

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

Yesterday's poll question: Should John McCain Pull Ad Featuring Paul Babeu?

- 66 percent say yes.

- 34 percent say no.
