PHOENIX—Today, Arizona political consulting firm DC London, Inc. released the most realistic poll of Arizona voters to date. Previous polls, conducted among only registered voters, failed to accurately portray the situation on the ground. This poll of likely voters, conducted by well-respected polling firm Magellan Strategies, shows the true picture: Arizona belongs to Mitt Romney.
Overall, Romney leads Obama 52 percent to 43 percent among likely voters, and 54 percent to 42 percent among motivated voters. Arizonans don’t support Obama or his policies:
· 55 percent of respondents have an unfavorable opinion of President Obama
· 55 percent disapprove of his job performance
· 56 percent disapprove of the health care law
Further, Romney is up by nine percent among independents (49 percent to 40 percent) and by four percent among women (49 percent to 45 percent).
In 2008, McCain won Arizona 53.0 percent to 44.6 percent. Romney, as this poll shows, is well positioned to hold Arizona for the GOP.
In the U.S. Senate race, Jeff Flake has a 44 percent to 40 percent lead over Richard Carmona, while Wil Cardon leads Carmona by just 41 percent to 40 percent. And, in the generic congressional ballot, Republicans have a nine percent advantage over Democrats (50 percent to 41 percent).
“Despite wishful thinking by the Left, Arizona is, and will remain, a red state in 2012,” said Sean Noble, president of DC London, Inc. “Arizonans are ready to move ‘forward,’ but it’s going to be without Barack Obama in the White House.”
