The Center for Excellence in Polling recently surveyed voters in Arizona to gauge their opinions on important issues in the state.

Arizonans are strongly supportive of several key reforms that would help Arizona’s economy flourish.


… of all likely voters support requiring able-bodied adults with no children at home to work, train, or volunteer for at least 20 hours per week as a condition of eligibility for food stamps. Nearly two-thirds of Democrats (63%) and nearly three-quarters of Independents (71%) support work requirements in the food stamp program.



… of all likely voters support requiring state bureaucratic agencies to get legislative approval before costly regulations are allowed to go into effect. This includes majorities of Democrats (70%), Independents (60%), and Republicans (80%).


… of all likely voters support unemployment indexing, tying the length of time individuals can remain on unemployment to the state’s unemployment rate. Indexing is popular with a strong majority of voters of all parties.

Voters are strongly opposed, however, to the practice of investing taxpayer money in banks and investment funds that make business decisions based on their political agenda. Republicans (69%), Democrats (68%), and Independents (69%) are all of a similar mind in their opposition to environmental, social, and governance (ESG) criteria in investing.
