PHOENIX — A new poll of Arizona voters shows President Donald Trump locked in a dead heat with former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Elizabeth Warren.

The Arizona Emerson College poll showed the Republican president tying with both Democratic candidates 50%-50%.

A match-up of Trump against Sen. Bernie Sanders was also close — the president led 51%-49%.

“Arizona is right there in the sweet spot of ‘could do this, or could do that,'” Valley political expert Stan Barnes told KTAR News 92.3 FM’s Arizona’s Morning News on Wednesday.

“And what that means is national money, national attention and the president are going to be here a lot.”

Trump’s approval rating in the state sat at 45%, while 50% disapproved of him. However, half of Arizona voters opposed impeaching him, while only 44% supported impeachment.

“There are a great many voters who may be upset with Trump’s style … but really love the economy and really love some of his boldness in other places,” Barnes said.

“And so I think voters are kind of confused, too, and don’t really know what they’re going to do with this.”

Among the Democratic candidates, Biden led the state at 28%, with Warren and Sanders following at 21%.

Mayor Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Indiana, came in next at 12%, while everyone else came in at 5% or lower.

Surveyors also asked about Arizona’s Senate race, finding another close match-up.

Democrat Mark Kelly came out ahead of Republican Sen. Martha McSally, but only by one percentage point at 46%-45%.

Arizona voters ranked the economy as the issue most important to them (33%), followed by heath care (18%) and immigration (13%).

The poll surveyed 901 registered voters in Arizona on Oct. 25-28. The margin of error was plus or minus 3.2%.
