Republican Blake Masters is neck and neck with Sen. Mark Kelly (D-AZ) in Arizona’s U.S. Senate race, while Republican Kari Lake has expanded her lead in the governor’s race, according to a poll.
The Trafalgar Group poll, released Sunday, shows Masters just 1.2 percentage points back of Kelly. Of the likely voter respondents, 45.4 percent say they support Masters, who is backed by former President Donald J. Trump, versus 46.6 percent who back Kelly. Another 5.3 percent are undecided, and only 2.7 percent plan to vote for Libertarian candidate Marc Victor.
The numbers are consistent with a recent Emerson College Polling poll, which found Masters just two points back of the Democrat. Masters has closed the gap in this poll when compared to a Trafalgar Group from late August, which had him more than three points behind Kelly, at 44.3 percent and 47.6 percent, respectively.
