Poll: Arizona Republican Gubernatorial Primary Neck-and-Neck

Estimated Reading Time: 2 minutes

The race to be the Republican nominee for governor in Arizona is competitive, according to polling.

A statewide poll of likely Republican primary voters from HighGround Public Affairs shows that it’s a close race between former TV anchor Kari Lake and Arizona Strategies president Karrin Taylor-Robson.


Although Lake, who was endorsed by former President Donald Trump, is leading in the poll, Robson is within striking distance. Lake earned 39% support of those surveyed while Robson received 35.3%. The poll found that 19.2% still considered themselves undecided in the race.

For Robson, it has been a meteoric rise in the polls. In the April HighGround poll, she trailed Lake by nearly 20 points (30.3% to 9.5%). Robson apparently has been aided by former U.S. Rep. Matt Salmon’s decision to drop out of the race and endorse her.

“Momentum appears to be building for Karrin Taylor Robson as early ballots drop,” Chuck Coughlin, president and CEO of HighGround, said in a news release. “Lake has held a fairly steady number for months buoyed by loyal Trump supporters, but she does not appear to be growing her base. She has stayed true to the narrow constituency that made her a front-runner in the first place. Robson, on the other hand, appears to be picking up the bulk of the Salmon supporters, undecided, and unaffiliated voters are trending her way. There’s a path to victory here, but it’s likely to be close.”


Robson also has received current Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey’s endorsement. Ducey is term-limited and cannot run.

The poll surveyed 400 voters between July 2 through July 7. It has a 4.9% margin of error. Ducey’s endorsement came on July 7, so the poll may not reflect the total impact of his support.

The Arizona statewide primary will take place on Aug. 2, 2022.

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.
