Rasmussen: Glassman Leads in Senate Primary



Former Tucson City Council Member Rodney Glassman is leading his three opponents with 15 percent voter support in the Arizona Democratic primary senate race, according to a new Rasmussen poll.

However, almost half of the voters surveyed remain undecided, meaning anybody could still prevail.

The other three candidates are close behind: ex-State Representative Cathy Eden with 11% support, followed by labor organizer Randy Parraz at 10% and investigative reporter John Dougherty at seven percent (7%).

Ten percent (10%) of likely primary voters favor some other candidate in the race, and 47% are undecided. Fifty percent (50%) or more don’t know enough about any of the primary hopefuls to express any kind of opinion about them, favorable or unfavorable.

These findings have changed little from a month ago, when Glassman and Eden were in a near tie with 12% and 11% of the vote respectively. Forty-six percent (46%) were undecided.

Earlier, Rasmussen reported on the Republican side that John McCain leads J.D. Hayworth by 20 points.

And now for our usual Rasmussen Reports disclaimer: The "Likely Voters" methodology has been criticized by other polling outfits.
