PHOENIX — A recent poll has found that Arizona voters are nearly split down the middle between presidential candidates Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, according to the Phoenix Business Journal.
With the November general election just eight months away, Arizona pollster Bruce Merrill found an equal amount of voters across the state have chosen Trump and Clinton to be their president: 38 percent for each.
However, Merrill also found that 15 percent of Arizona voters are undecided in the general election contest. Another nine percent said they would not vote for either candidate if they both made it to November.
The poll found Texas Sen. Ted Cruz would fare better among Arizona voters in a general election than Clinton, with 41 percent for the Republican candidate and 35 percent for the former Secretary of State.
If it came down to a Cruz-Clinton contest, 24 percent of voters said they are undecided or would not vote for either.
The Arizona primary on March 22 will test the true results of this poll.
Arizona will award 58 Republican and 85 Democratic delegates. The Republicans are a winner-take-all, while the Democratic ones will be divvied up proportionally.
Ahead of Tuesday’s primary, all the presidential candidates — except for John Kasich — will have visited the Valley.
Merrill conducted the poll from March 7 to 11 and surveyed 701 likely Arizona voters, according to the article.
