New polling numbers are out for Arizona's Attorney General race.

ABC15 Arizona and OH Predictive Insights teamed up for the numbers. Incumbent Mark Brnovich is leading his opponent January Contreras 54 percent to 32 percent. 

Still, 14 percent of the voters are undecided. ABC15 talked with the research director for the Grand Canyon Institute, a Valley non-partisan think tank, about the numbers. 

Dave Wells said some of the numbers could shift as voters educate themselves before the election.

"For a lot of ballot propositions, for instance, people don't know much about them," said Wells. "As a consequence, if they get more informed information they easily - possibly change their position and more likely it's from yes to no." 

There's a +/- 4% margin of error on the latest poll. Brnovich and Contreras had their first and only debate earlier this week.
