Fifty-two percent of likely Arizona voters said they are concerned most that the state is reopening too quickly and risking more coronavirus infections, according to the OH Predictive Insights poll released on Monday, The Hill reported.

Just 32% said they are worried that Arizona is acting too slowly and possibly harming the economy, and an additional 15% said they were unsure.

Other results from the survey showed:

  • Majorities of voters in the state’s most populous Maricopa and Pima counties, 54% and 57%, respectively, said Arizona is lifting coronavirus restrictions too soon and risking more infections. Only 31% and 27% of voters in Maricopa and Pima counties said the state is acting too slowly and could threaten the economy.
  • In Arizona’s rural counties, however, 42% said the state is acting too quickly and 41% said it is acting too slowly.

The survey took place on May 9-11, a couple of days before Arizona’s stay-at-home order ended last Friday. Republican Gov. Doug Ducey has since started permitting nonessential businesses to reopen. The poll is based on 600 completed surveys, and was conducted as a blended phone survey with 41% live caller surveys and 59% interactive voice responses. There is a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points.
