Most Arizonans say they're heeding the call to stay home, according to poll

Eight out of 10 people said they are not leaving the house at all or only if they must due to COVID-19 restrictions.

Since Gov. Doug Ducey announced his stay-at-home order March 30, most Arizona residents have heeded his call, according to a new poll.

The OH Predictive Insights poll showed that 82% of Arizonans say they are not leaving the house at all or are leaving only if they must. Of the 16% who are going out, 13% say they are “still being careful.”

The poll suggested most Arizona residents also approve of how Ducey is handling the pandemic.

“Fifty-nine percent of Arizona voters approve of the job he’s doing, with only 36% saying he’s not doing a good job,” said Mike Noble, OH Predictive Insights.

The same poll showed that 54% of Arizonans disapprove of or have no opinion about how President Donald Trump is handing the coronavirus response.

A poll from Phoenix-based OH Predictive earlier this month showed Trump lagging behind Democratic challenger Joe Biden in Arizona polls.
