New Poll Shows Democrat Ruben Gallego Leading Kari Lake in Head to Head Senate Matchup

A recent poll released on Wednesday shows that Rep. Ruben Gallego (D-Ariz.) is currently leading Republican candidate Kari Lake by 4 points in the Arizona Senate race.

In the race to replace retiring Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (I), a recent survey conducted by Emerson College Polling/The Hill revealed that Gallego garnered the support of 44 percent of Arizona registered voters, while Lake received 40 percent.

Approximately 16 percent of respondents indicated that they had not yet made a decision.

When undecided voters are questioned about their candidate preferences, the race becomes more closely contested, with Gallego leading at 51 percent and Lake close behind at 49 percent.

The difference falls within the poll’s margin of error, which is plus or minus 3 percentage points.

Simultaneously, the survey revealed that former President Trump is ahead of President Biden by a margin of 48 percent to 44 percent, leaving 8 percent undecided or supporting another candidate.

A recent poll conducted by Emerson College revealed that a significant portion of voters, 32 percent to be exact, consider immigration as their primary concern.

Meanwhile, 22 percent of respondents identified the economy as their top issue, while 11 percent expressed concerns about housing affordability. Education, health care, abortion access, threats to democracy, and crime were each given less than 10 percent of attention.

Lake has a stronger appeal among voters who prioritize immigration as their top concern, with a significant 77 percent support, compared to Gallego’s mere 12 percent.

Among voters who prioritize the economy as their most important issue, Gallego has the support of 43 percent, while Lake has the support of 38 percent.

A survey conducted by Emerson College Polling and The Hill took place from March 12-15, involving a sample of 1,000 registered voters in Arizona.

With a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points, the data should be interpreted with caution.
