67% of Arizonans Approve of Jon Kyl as Senator John McCain’s Replacement

PHOENIX (Sept. 13, 2018) – A new poll from OH Predictive Insights, a Phoenix-based research polling company, shows that Arizona Senator Jon Kyl is viewed favorably among 56% of Arizonans. Kyl, who was selected by Governor Doug Ducey to replace the late Senator John McCain, also has a high rating among Arizona residents: two out of three approve of the pick. Not only is Kyl highly favored by Arizona, but also few residents have a negative view of him: 16% consider Kyl unfavorable and 20% disapprove of him as the pick for Senator.

“As many political pundits speculated, the numbers validate Governor Ducey’s selection to fill the seat,” says Mike Noble, chief pollster and managing partner of OHPI. “It’s impossible to fill the giant void left by Senator John McCain, however Arizonans approve of Kyl’s appointment.”

The approval question was phrased: Recently, with the passing of Arizona U.S. Senator John McCain, the Governor appointed former Arizona U.S. Senator Jon Kyl to fill the open-seat.  Do you approve or disapprove of this choice?

Methodology: This 50% live caller and 50% automated phone poll was completed by OH Predictive Insights on September 5, 2018 and September 6, 2018, from a likely 2018 General Election voter sample. The sample demographics accurately reflected party affiliation, gender, region, and age. The sample size was 597 completed surveys, with a MoE of ± 4.01%. Poll report for the General Election poll can be viewed here.
