Kari Lake’s In the Hunt

(GoRealNewsNow.com) – In the face of a closely divided Congress in the run-up to this year’s election, Republican hopeful Kari Lake has set her eyes on a critical Senate seat that could tip the scale toward the right.

A recent poll by Public Policy Polling, a Democratic-leaning firm, revealed that the political landscape of Arizona shows a tightly contested race for the U.S. Senate seat in 2024.

The poll reveals that in a hypothetical match-up between Republican Kari Lake and Democrat Ruben Gallego, voter preferences are evenly split, with Lake receiving 46% support and Gallego 45%. In comparison, 10% of voters remain undecided.

The competitive nature of the race becomes even more pronounced in a three-way scenario involving current Senator Kyrsten Sinema, who identifies as an Independent.

In this hypothetical match-up, Gallego marginally leads with 36%, closely followed by Lake at 35% and Sinema trailing at 17%. Notably, 12% of voters are still unsure of their choice in this scenario.

This latest poll, sponsored by the Replace Sinema PAC, indicates a shift in voter sentiment compared to a similar survey conducted three months prior.

In October 2023, Gallego had a more substantial 5-point lead over Lake in a head-to-head match-up, which has now narrowed to a mere 1-point lead for Gallego.

Additionally, the previous survey showed Sinema with 15% support in a three-way race, which increased slightly to 17% in the latest poll.

The poll was conducted in early January 2024 and surveyed 590 registered voters in Arizona through interactive voice response calls to landlines and text messages to cell phones.

The margin of error for the poll is plus or minus four percentage points, making the close race between Lake and Gallego even more significant as it falls within this margin.

These findings underscore Arizona’s highly competitive political environment and suggest that the race for the Senate seat could be intensely contested, with potential implications for the broader national political landscape.
