Arizona power commissioner Gary Pierce's challenge to Los Angeles, saying the city should stop receiving power generated in his state because of its boycott, is really picking up steam. Now a poll posted on MSNBC asks this: "Should Arizona have the right to pull the plug on L.A. if the city goes through its boycott?"

34,447 votes later and 86.3% say, yes, Arizona should have the right. 12.5% say no and 1.3% say "I don't know."

20 to 25% of L.A.'s power is generated in Arizona in plants partially owned by the municipally-owned utility. Earlier today, the LADWP's General Manager said the city's resolution doesn't affect properties they own.
