Trump won 26.5 percent of support from potential Republican Party primary voters compared to only 12.6 percent for Walker and 12.1 percent for Bush, the two favored frontrunners for the party’s nomination before he entered the race, the press release, issued on Friday, said.

“According to likely Arizona GOP voters, Donald Trump is by far and away the candidate that most resonates, in which he also polled at a 61.3 percent favorability rating,” pollster Michael Noble said in the press release.

The poll was conducted on July 29 by MBQF, a public affairs and consulting firm based in Phoenix, Arizona, a statement from the company said.

Arizona is the home state of Senator John McCain, whom Trump insulted last month, claiming that that the veteran Senator and former prisoner-of-war in Vietnam was not a legitimate hero.

Trump has also been highlighting popular fears over lack of sufficient border security and uncontrolled flows of illegal immigrants into the United States, an issue that resonates strongly in Arizona, which is on the US-Mexican border.
