PHOENIX, Arizona: A measure asking voters whether or not to repeal the state's Clean Elections law will appear on the November 2012 ballot, but a new poll suggests that those surveyed want to keep the law in place. On April 18, 2011, results showed that 77% of those surveyed supported the law, therefore opposed the measure that is being placed before voters in 2012. The poll surveyed 500 likely 2012 voters and had a margin of error of plus or minus 4.4 percentage points.

The 77% support resulted from the pollster giving a brief description of the Clean Elections Law. A previous question in the survey asked if the voter was for or against the law, without a brief description. Those results showed 52% in favor, with 42% being undecided.[1][2]

This will be the second time voters decide on the issue, as in 1998, a measure was approved to establish the Clean Elections Act.
