PHOENIX, AZ — As the new coronavirus impacts communities big and small nationwide, the vast majority of people in Arizona are heeding the state’s stay-at-home order, a new poll reports.
According to a recent Arizona Public Opinion Pulse poll, more than 80 percent of respondents are venturing outside only when absolutely necessary or not leaving the house at all. Of the 16 percent who are still going out, 13 percent say they are being careful when they do.
The poll, which surveyed 600 people, also showed that 59 percent of voters approved of Gov. Doug Ducey’s handling of the coronavirus crisis. The remainder, 36 percent, said he’s done a bad job. Six percent said they were unsure or had no opinion.
The same poll showed that 46 percent of Arizonans approved of President Donald Trump’s handling of the pandemic while 50 percent disapproved of his handling of the crisis. The remainder, 4 percent, were unsure or had no opinion.
Voters’ opinions of Trump also play a role in their willingness to leave the house, the poll reports. More than 25 percent of voters who approve of the job Trump has been doing say they are still going out, whereas only 7 percent of those who disapprove of the president say the same.

Of the 13 percent who oppose the measure, 39 percent say it spends too much money, and 26 percent say it does not spend enough.
