Arizona Attorney General Terry Goddard isn't as down and out of the Arizona governor's race as once thought -- if you believe the latest poll numbers, that is.

A Rasmussen poll released last week had the race broken down as follows:

- Brewer: 55 percent.

- Goddard: 39 percent.

- Other candidate: 3 percent.

- Undecided: 3 percent.

A new poll from Behavior Research Center sees things a little differently. Check out the numbers from that poll after the jump.

- Brewer: 38 percent.

- Goddard: 25 percent.

- Other candidate: 6 percent.

- Undecided: 21 percent.

For Goddard, knowing that roughly one of every five likely voters is still undecided (if you believe the poll, of course) should come as good news. Jan's out of immigration bills to sign and her latest TV ad, which you can see below, is about as impressive as her epic moment of silence during the gubernatorial debate (the rambling, backbone BS aside, why does Jan Brewer look like a bobble-head doll?).
