Second Poll of Arizona Governor's Race Has Doug Ducey and Fred DuVal Tied
The race to become Arizona's next governor is tied, according to the second poll on the race released in the last week.
The latest poll comes from Rasmussen Reports has Republican Doug Ducey and Democrat Fred Duval tied at 40 percent each, based on interviews with 850 likely Arizona voters.
Last week, a poll released by Public Policy Polling had Ducey and DuVal each tied at 35 percent, based on surveys of 588 likely voters.
The first poll was done in the days leading up to the primary, and was released even before the results proved Ducey to be the Republican nominee, so the match-up was posed as a hypothetical.
TV ads in support of both candidates have been hitting the airwaves since the night of the primary election, and since the race appears to be so close, plan on seeing Ducey and DuVal ads every time you turn on a TV for the next two months.
