Polling Firms Seeking Insight on 2020

A discussion with Mike Noble, chief pollster for OH Predictive Insights.

Pollsters are already getting an early sense of how voters feel about key issues and races in 2020. OH Predictive Insights in Phoenix surveyed voters last month about likely matchups for U.S. Senate, among other issues. Chief of research Mike Noble discussed the findings with Christopher Conover. According to the poll, Democrat Mark Kelly trails Republican Sen. Martha McSally by two points. Democratic Rep. Ruben Gallego also falls short against McSally by 8 points.

"It's already shaping up to be quite the contest," Noble said.

The poll from OH Predictive also found that immigration has remained the top issue among voters since last fall, followed by education and health care.

"Immigration was our number one issue for a long time. However, last year, for a good portion of it, it was education," Noble said. According to Noble, immigration began polling as the top issue around October when news of the migrant caravan became widely reported.
