Arizona Governor’s and U.S. Senate Races Highly Competitive, Poll Shows

Estimated Reading Time: 2 minutes

If a new poll is any indicator, Arizona will have at least a couple of highly-competitive statewide races on the ballot this November.

The poll released by Emerson College this week found that the incumbent in the U.S. Senate race has a slight lead, and no one has a lead in the race to be the state’s next governor.


According to the poll, U.S. Sen. Mark Kelly, a Democrat, has a two-point lead over his Republican challenger, venture capitalist Blake Masters. The poll shows Kelly has a 47% to 45% lead. Five percent of voters said they were undecided, and 4% said they plan to support someone else. Additionally, 53% of voters say they think Kelly will win the race, regardless of who they support.

“A stark gender divide exists in the Arizona Senate Election; men break for Masters by a 10-point margin whereas women voters break for Kelly by 13,” Spencer Kimball, Executive Director of Emerson College Polling, said in a press release. “Additionally, Independent voters favor Kelly over Masters, 46% to 37%.”

The numbers are highly similar in the race for governor. In the open seat race, Republican Kari Lake and Democrat Katie Hobbs are tied, according to the poll. Each of the candidates has 46% support. Meanwhile, 6% of voters say they are undecided, and 2% say they plan to support someone else in the race. Most (54%) say that they think Lake will win the race. It’s an open-seat election; incumbent Republican governor Doug Ducey is not seeking re-election.


Voters who responded to the poll said that the economy is the most important issue (36%), while so-called “abortion access” and immigration were tied for a distant second at 16%.

“For those who say the economy is their determining issue this November, 63% support Masters and 66% support Lake,” Kimball said. “By contrast, 98% and 99% of those who say abortion access is the most important issue support Kelly and Hobbs.”

The poll was conducted on September 6 and 7 and had a 3.85% margin of error.

Are you fed up? Are you worried that America in rapidly sliding into a neo-Marxist state by the radical left in control of Washington with historically narrow majorities in the U.S. House and Senate and an Executive controlled by unnamed far leftists in place of a clinically incompetent President Biden? They are desperate to keep power and complete their radical progressive agenda that will change America and our liberty forever.

Americans just witnessed the passage of the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 without one Republican vote in the U.S. Senate and House (just as Obamacare was passed in 2010). The IRS  will be hiring 87,000 new agents, many armed, to terrorize American taxpayers.

Americans witnessed the FBI raid at the Trump Mar-A-Lago home and property of President Trump, truly a first in all of American history. We know what that is about. 

It is undeniable that the Democrat Party and the administrative state (the executive branches of the DOJ, FBI, IRS, et al) are clear and present dangers to our Republic and our liberty as they increasingly veer further away from the rule of law and the Constitution. What is the solution? At this critical juncture, there is only one action we can all take.

The only viable and timely solution at this critical point is to vote – yes, vote correctly and smartly to retake the U.S. House and Senate on November 8th and to prepare the way to retake the White House in two years. Vote and help everyone you know to vote. Please click the TAKE ACTION link below – we must vote correctly and in great numbers to be sure our votes are counted to diminish the potential for the left to rig and steal the midterms and the 2024 elections as they are clearly intending to do after their success in 2020.
