As we move to the phase of breathing more oxygen into our economy, it’s clear from a recent Public Opinion Strategies poll that Governor Doug Ducey has the confidence of Arizonans.
In my book, the poll’s lead author, Bill McInturff, is the best in the nation. He has been the GOP mainstay of the NBC/Wall Street Journal poll for many years. The Arizona Chamber has relied on his work for many of our most important policy initiatives.
The key takeaways in the poll, which was commissioned by Arizona Rock Products Association:
- A very engaged electorate voices strong support for Governor Ducey and his handling of the coronavirus crisis. More than six out of ten voters (63%) approve of the job Governor Ducey is doing as governor.
- His handling of the coronavirus situation earns him 71% approval. This includes 80% among Republicans, 65% among Independents, and 67% among Democrats.
- Voters believe Governor Ducey has struck the right balance in his approach to dealing with the virus. When asked about Governor Ducey’s “proposals and actions to deal with the current coronavirus situation here in Arizona,” 61% believe his approach has “been about right.”
I encourage you to read the poll for yourself.
