AZ Poll: GOP’s Kari Lake Blows Governor’s Race Wide Open

Republican Kari Lake has taken a commanding double-digit lead in Arizona’s gubernatorial race, while GOP candidate Blake Masters is neck and neck with Sen. Mark Kelly (D-AZ) in the U.S. Senate contest, according to a poll.

The Insider Advantage poll, sponsored by Fox 10 Phoenix, shows that 54 percent of likely voters are backing Lake, a former news anchor for the station, while 45 percent are supporting Hobbs. About two percent of respondents are undecided. The Republican is reportedly polling better among older demographics and with Latinos.

While a Data for Progress poll released earlier in the day showed Lake up four, Insider Advantage’s numbers indicate she has blown the contest wide-open with only 13 days to go until the election. Hobbs refused to debate Lake under any circumstances, and pollster Matt Towery believes this could have contributed to Lake’s growing lead.

The U.S. Senate race is in a statistical dead heat. Of likely voter respondents, 43 percent say they are voting for Masters, while 45 percent support Kelly. Another six percent say they back Libertarian candidate Marc Victor. As Masters is within the margin of error, the race is a statistical tie. The Data for Progress poll from earlier in the day showed both candidates polling at 47 percent and Victor at three percent.

Masters has steadily surged in the race despite a major fundraising disadvantage, and Democrat strategists at the national and local levels have become concerned about Kelly’s reelection chances, as Politico’s Natalie Allison reported on Saturday.

“We believe this is a race that’s within a point in either direction, and there’s still a good chance that we would lose,” a Democrat source close to the campaign told Politico. “And it’s important people understand that.”

While speaking with host Matthew Boyle on Sirius XM’s Breitbart News Saturday over the weekend, Masters acknowledged that the momentum behind his campaign is “undeniable.”

“The momentum here on the ground is undeniable, and I’m not surprised to see that reflected in the polls,” Masters said. “You know, we’ve got the winning message. Mark Kelly’s got nothing but lies to run on; he’s got to lie about me with vicious attack ads that are fake, and he’s got to lie about his own record.”

The poll stamped 550 likely voters between October 24-25 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.2 percentage points.

    The fact that Hobbs will not debate Lake is key here. Good luck Arizona in the gubernatorial race.
    As for the Dems, they have nothing but “lies to run on”. I think the people are seeing that now everywhere. The adds the Dems are running are pathetic.

    Hobbs can’t maintain a conversation with the media why would she attempt to debate Lake? Lake is the only choice for Governor.

    For the senate, I heard Markie lying about his inaction on our AZ border. For any voter who has not checked, there is a voting record for every sitting incumbent filed in the records for their voting actions or abstinence if they did not vote. We even have those records at the state level too for AZ’s sitting congress like senators and reps as well. Just takes a little prowling around in either area.

    Check Markie’s record out. He is lying about his actions. When he votes he votes with whatever Schmucky tells him to vote for. That is why their solid fifty senators as a block in the nation’s House is always met with Kammy to give a solid 51. Exceptions have only been Manchin and Sin via a whole lotta news!

    WAKE UP, check his stats. And the biggest gigantic lie he has stated that I heard and read is saying he was against our open boarders and stood up for that. He actually have done nothing at all to stop old senile Biden’s open boarders and that total invasion from the open boarders into AZ, etc..

    Countries in South America run by tyrants like Venezuela are emptying their prisons to send their losers to the United States! Are these their best? Not at all, just criminals.

    Wake up folks and vote accordingly. But don’t take my word or Markie’s for granted, look in those records that are public from the House in Congress. His total voting record is recorded on their sight for his tenure! Just identify the vote to the bill so you need some research skills. And the big thing is did he just abstain or actually vote, both are clear on what Markie really does versus what he says. And while both sides lie a lot, those records of their votes says where they really stand.

    I believe if you are undecided this should turn the tide for any voter who cares to learn the truth. And I also believe if Markie had been opposed to Biden’s dictates or Schmucky’s demands even if it is just about a discussion or debate in the senate, we would have all heard about it in the news. And I listen and read, there was not a peep or chirp from a cricket of news that Markie did any objecting in his past two years with Old Joe and his senate leader Schmucky. We heard plenty from Sin but not a peep from Markie. Hum?
