A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in Arizona finds Flake, a U.S. congressman, earning 47% of the vote, while Carmona receives 31% support. Five percent (5%) prefers some other candidate in the race, but a sizable 17% are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
This Arizona survey of 500 Likely Voters was conducted on June 26, 2012 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 4.5 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology.
The AZ Capitol Times Yellow Sheet had this to say:
"As in the March poll, Rasmussen surveyed only the general election matchups, though some information about the GOP primary can be gleaned from the crosstabs. Flake is seen favorably by 72 percent of the self-identified Republicans and viewed unfavorably by only 13 percent. Cardon, meanwhile, is still fighting for recognition among GOP voters: 31 percent weren’t sure what to think of him, more than double the 14 percent that said the same about Flake. Among those who had an opinion, Cardon was seen favorably, though the 48-21 spread is nowhere near as overwhelming as Flake’s."
