RE: Update on State of the Governor’s Race in Arizona – Aug 15, 2014
The findings show that Doug Ducey is in an excellent position to win the Governor’s race by a strong margin.
Here are the current numbers:
Below is a comparison of the ballot test in the last four Harper polls:
June 27 July 21 July 29 Aug 15
Ducey 33% 23% 26% 32%
Jones 15% 21% 15% 12%
Smith 14% 13% 15% 21%
Bennett 12% 12% 12% 14%
Thomas 3% 7% 11% 7%
Riggs 2% 1% 5% 3%
Undecided 22% 22% 16% 10%
Ducey enjoys strong support from all corners of Arizona. He leads Smith in Phoenix media market 29-23, in Tucson market 44-12 and Yuma market 25-16.
Doug Ducey will not only win the primary, he is the best choice for Republicans to win the general in November. His strong lead in the polling and his strong favorable image rating will ensure that Arizona remains in Republican control to stand up to the failure of Washington, D.C. and the Obama administration.
In the Attorney General race, Mark Brnovich has a solid lead over Tom Horne:
A Brnovich primary win will send the Democrats back to the drawing board on trying to figure out how to take on someone who would be the most qualified person ever on day one to walk into the AG’s office. Felecia Rotellini and her liberal allies have miscalculated their opportunity and will face a formidable candidate in Mark Brnovich.
