A proposition to make hunting, fishing and lawfully harvesting wildlife constitutional rights in Arizona has nearly equal support and opposition among voters most likely to cast a ballot Nov. 2.
That’s according to a new statewide survey released Wednesday by the Behavior Research Center.
The poll found 39 percent of likely voters support Proposition 109, while 36 percent oppose it, with a margin of error of 4.9 percentage points. The center says the vote traces to sharper divisions in urban counties and among Independents and Democrats.
The results were not as close among registered voters overall at 42 percent yes and 35 percent no.
The poll was conducted Oct. 1-10 through telephone interviews with 555 registered voters, including 405 likely voters.
