Trump has General Election Problem with GOP Base
(Phoenix, AZ) — MBQF, a public affairs consulting firm, announced the results of a recent survey concerning top tier GOP candidates for president of the United States of America.
The results from the survey show high efficacy primary Republican voters across Arizona represented by likely 2016 turnout models.
In the most recent automated telephonic survey of 736 high efficacy primary republican voters, conducted on February 22, 2016, the survey calculates a 3.61% theoretical margin of error, plus or minus in percentage points, 95% of the time.
The exact question was phrased, “Arizona’s Presidential Preference election will be held March 22nd. Which candidate, listed in alphabetical order are you planning on supporting?”
AZ GOP Presidential Primary 2016 – Feb 22nd, 2016 Results
Donald Trump – 34.8%
Marco Rubio – 22.7%
Ted Cruz – 14.1%
John Kasich – 7.1%
Unsure/Undecided – 21.3%
Michael Noble, consultant and pollster, issued the following statement, “The early primaries and caucuses have winnowed a 17-person field down to just 4 credible choices. Donald Trump maintains his consistent advantage from likely GOP voters. However, the poll shows what many have long discussed – Trump has a ceiling and cannot attract the wide swath of GOP voters.”
Noble added, “Donald Trump is on pace to win Arizona big in March, but would be an underdog to repeat that feat in November.”
