Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey raised the temperature of the debates over a number of controversial issues in the state when he signed several bills related to changes in voting, abortion and LGBTQ rights.

Since 2022 is a non-presidential election year, it’s expected to be a successful one for Republicans. But could Ducey’s signings rev up both Democratic and Republican voters this fall?

The Show spoke with Paul Bentz, a pollster with HighGround, to get his perspectives, beginning the conversation by asking how enthusiastic he expects the voting public to be in November.
