The Arizona Free Enterprise Club today released our latest poll for the general election, focusing on the Governor’s and Attorney General Race. The Club’s in depth poll, conducted by the Tarrance Group, shows Doug Ducey maintaining his lead over Democrat Fred DuVal. Among likely voters, Ducey is currently leading DuVal 43% to 36%, with Libertarian Barry Hess garnering 5% of the vote. Our last poll, conducted in mid September, showed Ducey up six, 44% to 38%.
Ducey’s support from his own party continues to help build on his lead, with 79% of Republicans supporting Ducey while 74% of Democrats supporting DuVal. Additionally, both candidates continue to split Independent voters, with both candidates receiving 32% support. There are 14% of voters that are still undecided.
In the Attorney General Race, Republican Mark Brnovich has opened up an impressive nine point lead over Felecia Rotellini, 48% to 39%. While each candidate is doing well within their own party, it is the independent vote that is proving decisive for Brnovich. He currently has a +12 point lead among Indendents, and is leading by +20 with male voters. Conversely, Rotellini is only leading by +3 with women voters.
The live telephone poll of 500 respondents was conducted October 13th through the 16th and has a 4.5% margin of error, and included a sample of 35.8% Rep, 30.5% Dem and 33.7% Ind.
