Considering the fact that Kari Lake just lost her election for governor of Arizona, the Republican may do better in a later race for the U.S. Senate.
Public Policy Polling (PPP) polled the public to find out which candidate in Arizona they would prefer. In addition to Lake, the choices were Senator Kyrsten Sinema and Democratic Representative Ruben Gallego. Sinema has declared her intention to vote as an independent.
The poll indicates that voters would select Lake from among these three options.
“New Arizona phone numbers,” A company connected to the Democratic Party, PPP, posted on Thursday. In a three-way contest, Ruben Gallego would receive 40% of the vote and Kari Lake would receive 41%, according to Kyrsten Sinema.
The poll also shows that Lake would only just lose to Gallego in a neck-to-neck contest, with Lake receiving 47% of the vote to the congressman’s 48%. In a theoretical one-on-one contest, Lake leads Sinema by three points, but 19% of respondents said they weren’t sure which candidate they would support.
The poll, which included over 650 Arizona voters, revealed that Gallego was “considerably more popular” than Sinema, according to PPP.
Gallego stated in a statement: “You don’t need a survey to understand why voters aren’t satisfied with Senator Sinema: she’s regularly voted with Wall Street bankers and major drug companies, and against the interests of Arizonans. “Arizona doesn’t share Sinema’s values. It won’t change if I add a different letter after her name.”
