Poll: Napolitano widens margin in governor's race

PHOENIX (AP) - Democratic Gov. Janet Napolitano has widened her margin over Republican challenger Len Munsil, according to a new statewide survey conducted by Arizona State University.

The telephone survey of 1,019 people deemed "most likely to vote" found that 67 percent of those surveyed favored Napolitano, 24 percent favored Munsil and 1 percent favored Libertarian Barry Hess, with 8 percent undecided.

A similar ASU poll, conducted Sept. 21-24, found Napolitano with a 36-point margin over Munsil.

The latest ASU poll, taken from Thursday to Sunday, had a margin of error of 3 percentage points. It was released Tuesday by the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication and KAET-TV.
