New Poll Finds More Voters Say They Voted For Kari Lake – Yet Katie Hobbs Won?
Democrat Katie Hobbs was elected Arizona Governor last November.
Kari Lake has filed a lawsuit alleging fraud.
Democrat Katie Hobbs was elected Arizona governor on Monday, defeating an ally of Donald Trump who falsely claimed the 2020 election was rigged and refused to say she would accept the results of her race this year.
Hobbs, who is Arizona’s secretary of state, rose to prominence as a staunch defender of the legitimacy of the last election and warned that her Republican rival, former television news anchor Kari Lake, would be an agent of chaos. Hobbs’ victory adds further evidence that Trump is weighing down his allies in a crucial battleground state as the former president gears up for an announcement of a 2024 presidential run.
She will succeed Republican Gov. Doug Ducey, who was prohibited by term limit laws from running again. She’s the first Democrat to be elected governor in Arizona since Janet Napolitano in 2006.
A new poll found more voters say they voted for Kari Lake and other Republican candidates.
A poll from Rasmussen found that 51% of Arizona voters say they voted for Kari Lake and only 43% say they voted for Katie Hobbs.
Rasmussen Reports and College Republicans United issued the results of a type of “late exit” poll on Friday, revealing that likely Arizona voters said they voted for former Republican gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake over Governor Katie Hobbs 51 percent to 43 percent.
Also, the poll found these likely Arizona voters voted for Abe Hamadeh and Mark Finchem over their Democratic opponents who won those respective state races.
n the gubernatorial poll, 5 percent said they voted for someone else, and 2 percent said they were unsure. Women voted for Lake over Hobbs by a 49 to 43 percent margin. Similarly, Arizonans have a more favorable view of Lake than Hobbs. Over 50 percent view Lake positively; 30 percent find her “very favorable,” and 21 percent “somewhat favorable.” In contrast, Hobbs’ favorability is at 44 percent, with 25 percent viewing her as “very favorable” and 19 percent as “somewhat favorable.”
When asked who they voted for in the attorney general’s race, 49 percent of likely voters said Hamadeh, compared to 43 percent for Kris Mayes. In addition, 4 percent said someone else, and 5 percent were unsure of who to vote for.
