Arizona Voters Are #ReformReady!
A poll shows that likely Arizona voters from a variety of political backgrounds want a reform-minded county attorney.
The poll was conducted by Change Research between February 4 and 7, 2020 and included results from 902 registered Arizona voters likely to vote in November 2020.
Among the key findings:
9 in 10 likely Arizona voters said it’s very important for a county attorney to end corruption, prioritize transparency, and make data publicly available.
79% of likely voters agree that racism is a problem in the criminal justice system, and a county attorney should work to eliminate racial disparities.
77% of likely voters want independent investigations when police hurt or kill people to ensure officers are held accountable for misconduct.
Nearly 80% of voters agree that county attorneys should reduce incarceration by prioritizing treatment for substance abuse and mental health problems and reduce extremely long prison sentences.
Arizona voters do not want their county attorneys to focus on prosecuting non-violent drug crimes.
