New Arizona poll shows Buttigieg, Biden in statistical tie with Trump
PHOENIX — A new poll of Arizona voters shows a statistical dead heat between Mayor Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Indiana, former Vice President Joe Biden and President Donald Trump.
According to an OH Predictive Insights poll released Monday, Trump leads the Indiana mayor 45%-43%, while Biden trails the president by a similar margin, 46%-44%. The undecided votes range from 10%-12%.
“Depending on who Democrats select as their nominee, the Grand Canyon State may be in for one of the tightest presidential races in memory,” Mike Noble, chief of research and managing partner of Phoenix-based research company OH Predictive Insights said in a press release.
“The biggest surprise is that of the steady rise of Buttigieg in the last six months – the big ‘MO’ is on the South Bend mayor’s side.”
