PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -- A new poll released Wednesday shows a strong majority of Arizona voters oppose a new law that bans schools from issuing mask mandates to slow spread of COVID.

Nearly 60 percent of likely voters oppose the law that takes effect at the end of the month, while 37.5 percent support it, according to HighGround, Inc., a Republican leaning consulting firm based in Phoenix.

The Arizona School Boards Association, a group challenging the law in court, paid for poll of 400 likely voters.

The survey also found a sharp partisan split with 88 percent of Democrats and 65 percent of independents opposing the the ban on mask mandates, while 62.5 percent said they supported it.
