Arizona special election in dead heat: poll

Source: The Hill

The special election for an Arizona House seat is in a statistical dead heat in the final week of the race, according to a poll released on Monday.

A poll from Emerson College found physician Hiral Tipirneni (D) narrowly leading with 46 percent, compared to former state Sen. Debbie Lesko (R), who is at 45 percent — well within the poll’s margin of error.

Monday’s poll is an outlier and a huge swing in the direction toward Democrats, with other recent polling showing Lesko winning by double-digit margins. The latest public poll on Friday from OH Predictive Insights and ABC 15 Arizona found Lesko leading by 10 points, 53 to 43 percent.

Arizona’s special election has captivated national attention, with Republican groups pouring more resources into a district that President Trump won by 21 points in 2016. The winner of the April 24 race will replace former Rep. Trent Franks (R), who resigned after reportedly discussing paying a staffer to act as a surrogate mother.

1. Would be nice to get that seat

despite it being a longshot. It all hinges on GOTV.

3. Nice - this was a Trump +21 district

even keeping it under 10 should be considered a victory

9. Thanks for posting

I donated to the cause. As a close desert neighbor, it would absolutely thrill me to flip this seat from red to blue.

10. I live in the district. I'm seeing an unprecented level

of campaigning and of support for a Dem candidate (usually completely absent or invisible). Money is making a huge difference in name recognition.
