PHOENIX – The majority of likely Arizona voters said they approved of the weeklong statewide curfew Gov. Doug Ducey imposed in response to demonstrations that had turned contentious.

The OH Predictive Insights poll was released Monday, the same day the nightly curfew expired at 5 a.m.

Of the 600 who participated in the survey, 72% saw the curfew in a positive light.

“Voters clearly appreciated the quick action,” Mike Noble, chief pollster for Phoenix-based OH Predictive Insights, said in a press release.

The order went into effect May 31, the night after looters tore into Scottsdale Fashion Square.

Worry that there would be more protests in the state was at 62% in the poll.

Early demonstrations in downtown Phoenix turned into confrontations between protesters and police.

Demonstrators had gathered to protest the police killing of George Floyd in Minnesota.

Phoenix protesters damaged buildings and police fired tear gas canisters and rubber bullets at the crowd.

More than 300 were arrested over Memorial Day weekend. Since then, no one has been arrested as the protests continued.

Sunday marked the 11th straight day of marching.

Breaking down the poll, 85% of the Republicans approved of the curfew to 64% of Democrats and 60% of independents.

The phone survey had a 4% margin of error and was taken June 2-3.
