Former President Donald Trump’s influence is making its presence felt in the Arizona races for Governor and the U.S. Senate.
Trump-endorsed Kari Lake, running for governor, and Blake Masters, running for U.S. Senate, are leading the Republican Primaries with just days to go.
An OH Predictive poll conducted on July 27th found that Lake holds a massive lead at 51% of respondents saying they will vote for her. Just 33% are backing her closest competitor, Karrin Taylor Robson.
Masters is in a similar position with 36% of respondents stating they will vote for him. His closest competitor, Jim Lamon, comes in second far behind Masters at 21%.
The deciding factor in both Lake and Masters’s massive leads are supporters of Donald Trump. Both candidates dominate support rates amongst Trump supporters.
Trump’s endorsement is deciding races nationwide and Arizona’s races are particularly important. Democrats have a good reason to be extremely nervous going into the midterm elections in November.
