Poll: Dr. Kelli Ward separates from pack of potential GOP rivals


The new survey also finds Dr. Kelli Ward leads Democrat Kyrsten Sinema in a head-to-head matchup
 
Tempe, AZ – A new poll shows Dr. Kelli Ward firmly positioned​ ​as​ ​the Republican​ ​frontrunner​ ​for​ ​the 2018​ ​Arizona GOP ​primary. The Revily, Inc. poll, conducted​ ​by​ ​IVR​ ​and​ ​Online​ ​interviews, between ​October​ ​28-31 among 380 likely Republican primary voters found that Dr. Kelli​ ​Ward​​ ​leads​ ​her​ ​closest​ ​potential challenger, ​Martha​ ​McSally, ​by​ ​more than​ ​10​ ​points.

In his analysis of the data, Revily, Inc. pollster David​ ​Burrell wrote “The​ ​dust​ ​is​ ​beginning​ ​to​ ​settle​ ​from​ ​Sen.​ ​Jeff​ ​Flake’s​ ​announcement​ ​that​ ​he​ ​will​ ​not​ ​seek​ ​re-election​ ​as​ ​a​ ​Republican​ ​in​ ​the​ ​2018 cycle. ​And​ ​despite​ ​the​ ​primary​ ​field​ ​still​ ​formulating, ​it​ ​is​ ​becoming​ ​evident​ ​that​ ​anyone​ ​who​ ​enters​ ​the​ ​race​ ​is​ ​going​ ​to​ ​be​ ​chasing Kelli​ ​Ward.”

The poll also asked 850 general election voters who they would vote for in a matchup between Republican Dr. Kelli Ward and Democrat Kyrsten Sinema. Thirty-four percent of voters said they would support Ward, to 33 percent who said they would vote for Sinema. Thirty-three percent of voters were still undecided.

Ward was the only Republican primary candidate who polled ahead of Sinema.

“Dr. Kelli Ward holds a commanding lead in the primary race,” said Ward campaign chairman Ed Rollins. “With her nearest primary competitor nearly 11 points behind, the notion that this is a wide-open race is flat out wrong.  Ward is already consolidating the primary electorate and the writing is on the wall – Republican leaders in Washington and Arizona would be wise to get behind her at this point.”

“Ward is also in the strongest position to keep the seat in Republican hands,” added Rollins. “She is the only candidate who defeats Kyrsten Sinema in a head-to-head matchup, and her broad appeal will only increase as voters learn more about her.”
