Morning Poll: Will SB 1070 Hold Up in Court?

Today will likely be the day.

The Washington Post is claiming this morning that the Justice Department will file a lawsuit to try and stop Arizona's controversial, new immigration law as early as today.

The lawsuit, the Post claims, is based on the legal doctrine of preemption, which is based on the supremacy clause in the Constitution.
