Skip to comments.AZ-Sen. 2010: John McCain leads J.D. Hayworth in new poll (Daily Kooks for McCain!) (BARF ALERT)

WASHINGTON -- So far, J.D. Hayworth's campaign to beat Sen. John McCain for the Republican nomination for McCain's seat in Arizona is looking like little more than a nuisance.
A new Research 2000 poll sponsored by Daily Kos, out Friday, showed McCain beating Hayworth easily, 52-37. Meanwhile, McCain ended the first quarter of 2010 with $4.5 million in the bank, after raising more than $2.2 million this year so far. Hayworth announced that he raised more than $1 million, but didn't say exactly how much. (And one of his top advisors, Arizona public relations mogul Jason Rose, recently quit because Hayworth couldn't, or wouldn't, give him a paying contract to keep working on the campaign.)
McCain is taking the race deadly seriously, running all over Arizona in an effort not to let Hayworth carve out much space to his right. His campaign aides push back against the slightest provocation from Hayworth with overwhelming force. And of course, Sarah Palin -- who he launched from Alaska to global superstardom in 2008 -- came through to rally the faithful for him last weekend. True, the state's Republicans are rabidly conservative, and some of them have never liked McCain; his push a few years ago for immigration reform hurt him among some segments of the GOP base. Hayworth has had some luck raising money from tea party groups outside Arizona who think McCain is an apostate.
But there's only been a couple of public polls that ever made it seem like the race would be close, both by the same company, Rasmussen Reports. The Daily Kos survey certainly doesn't give that impression. If Hayworth did somehow pull off the upset, Democrats might have a chance of taking the seat, the poll showed. But national Democrats are barely paying attention to Arizona (except to direct attention to the GOP primary). And chances are McCain will win both the primary and the general election handily, for a fifth term in the Senate.
Can anyone provide details about this wrinkle?
McCain is going to win whether or not Kos is polling for him or not. He’ll be gone at the end of his current term I’m sure anyway. JD is passing up an opportunity to win back the House seat he held and he’ll regret that decision.
This is funy stuff, a poll by the biggest idiots on the planet, supporting their favorite GOP hack in gratitude for throwing the last election.
Still pimping the hate Sarah bandwagon, pimping your kook mentor Ron Paul.
Give it up
Rabadash Rabs, most everyone knows the reasons you stir the pot against her.
The Daily KOS is Soros and he is trying to bail out McCain. This poll is a joke. Why ON EARTH would the Daily Kos want to do a GOP primary poll? Because McCain is in trouble and wants to his Democrat pals to bail him out.
McCain is a POS.
No JD is not down again. The Daily KOS poll is nonsense. It is Soros trying to save McCain. Don’t try to spread the Daily KOS BS propaganda - we know what it smells like.
McCain is not gain. My guess is after that poor rancher and his dog were murdered by illegals that people in AZ are finally fed up with Amnesty McCain.
McCain is playing the border drug problem correctly. He is calling for troops. Even the DemonRAT registered Mexican voters in Arizona want protection.

Oh, and BTW, JD must also be a phony since he gets why Sarah is supporting McCain:
BLITZER: You know that Sarah Palin who was his running mate says she's going to support John McCain and try to get him that nomination instead of you. How do you feel about that?
HAYWORTH: Well, I think we all understand the impulse of gratitude in politics and obviously Senator McCain, one of the decisions I applaud him for was putting Sarah Palin on the ticket. I think it gave great excitement to the Republican base and I can understand why she's coming here. But what's interesting, Wolf, in the social media, as I understand it, there's a new page on Facebook, Sarah Palin fans for JD but in the final analysis, it's not Sarah Palin from Alaska, It's Sarah Boyd in Scottsdale and others like her. Arizonans will decide who will be the next senator from this great state.And there's this gem from JD:
So are you going to toss him under the Palin bus too?
Even funnier are the conservatives that posts polls from Daily Kos.
The point is that she’s nothing new. Just more of the same sell-out, half-*ss, cowardly GOP cult.
She will disappoint, guaranteed.
She will not be getting my vote.
She endorsed McCain recently—that’s all I need to know.

I’m not going to “debate” the Palin campaign drones, sorry.
