In this section, we’re going to discuss politics in Arizona.

In the 2016 presidential election the republican nominee received 49% of the popular vote while the democratic nominee received 45% making the difference right around 91,000 votes.

In the 2012 presidential election, the republican nominee received 53% of the popular vote while the democratic nominee received 44%, making the difference right around 208,000 votes.

Like most states in the our country, Arizona has voters that support both the major parties in national politics. While our state has voted primarily republican in the past 2 decades, the margins have narrowed more recently.

Dating back to the presidential election in the year 2000, the average margin of victory for the republican party has been right around 7.5%, with the closest margin being in the 2016 election, where the margin was only 3.5%.

In summary, Arizona has over a million residents that support the republican party in national elections, and over a million residents that support the democratic party in national elections.

In my years living here, I have rarely had other people’s political views influence my life in either work or recreation. Now in all fairness, I don’t make it a habit to go around sparking political debates, but neither do the people that I come across in everyday life.

Arizona supports a variety of cultures and the political views they hold. I guess what I’m saying is that Arizona is made up of many different types of people, and I consider that to be a healthy environment.
