Nobody really knows who they like in the race for governor, according to a poll released today.
For example, according to the Behavior Research Center's Rocky Mountain Poll, 72 percent of Democrats said they're uncommitted, while the well-funded candidate who's been in Arizona Democratic politics for decades is apparently tied with a guy from rural Arizona that most people have never heard of.
When you add in the independents who said they planned to vote in the Democratic primary, Fred DuVal has a slight lead over a fellow named Ron Cavanaugh -- who ran for governor as a Libertarian in 2010, and came in third place among Libertarians in the primary.
(In reality, DuVal's going to win the Dem primary, which is more of a fact than it is a prediction.)
On the other side, the Republicans don't really know what's going on either. Sixty-nine percent were uncommitted.

None of the Republican candidates -- Christine Jones, "Candy" Andy Thomas, Scott Smith, Ken Bennett, Doug Ducey, and Al Melvin -- got more than 8 percent.
Voters still have seven months and change to pick someone for the primary, and appear to be in no rush, based on this poll.
