(Phoenix, AZ) – A recent poll commissioned by Data Orbital for the upcoming general election shows that Republican nominee, Donald Trump, is holding onto a narrow lead in Arizona.
Data Orbital, a Phoenix based consulting firm, announced today the results of a recent survey conducted on likely general election voters in Arizona. The poll showed Trump leading Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton, with 11% of voters undecided, and a whopping 9% pledged to Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson.
The survey's head to head results are below:
George Khalaf, consultant and pollster, issued the following statement: “With national trends in battle ground states shifting away from Hillary Clinton, Trump is still well below where Republican nominees have been in Arizona in the past. With almost 10% of people voting for a third party candidate, in order for Trump to win, he must consolidate virtually every republican vote and a majority of independents. While numbers are closer than they have been historically, registration figures and turnout projections still point to a likely Trump victory."
This live poll of 550 likely general election voters in Arizona has a margin of error at plus or minus 4.12 percent, with a 95 percent confidence interval. Respondents were weighted on a number of different demographic figures based off previous voter turnout and responses were 25/75 cell phones and landlines.
