Former Fox 10 Phoenix anchor Kari Lake continues to dominate the rest of the field in Arizona’s Republican Gubernatorial primary, according to a Trafalgar Group poll.
With the August 2 primary fast approaching, Lake drew 47.6 percent of the response among likely GOP primary voters in Trafalgar’s latest poll, released Thursday. Another 38.8 percent of respondents voiced their support for Karrin Taylor Robson, placing her 8.8 percentage points behind Lake, who secured the coveted endorsement from former President Donald J. Trump. None of the other candidates eclipsed the five percent mark, and just over seven percent of participants remained undecided.
While Lake has the support of the 45th president, Robson is backed by former Vice President Mike Pence, establishing one of their intense GOP proxy wars in the 2022 midterm election cycle, which has already seen many. Trump and Pence both stumped for their respective candidates on July 22, with the 45th president hosting a massive rally for Lake, along with Blake Masters, whom he has endorsed in the GOP’s U.S. Senate primary in the Grand Canyon State.
