A new poll shows Arizona Sen. John McCain widening his lead over his Republican challenger ahead of next month's GOP primary.
The Rocky Mountain Poll released Wednesday shows McCain leading former U.S. Rep. J.D. Hayworth 64 percent to 19 percent. Political newcomer Jim Deakin had 5 percent.
McCain's margin has widened from a 54 percent to 28 percent lead he held over Hayworth in the same poll in April.
The telephone poll was conducted by the Behavior Research Center between June 30 and July 11 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 5.4 percentage points. Pollsters surveyed a random sample of 334 registered Arizona voters, including 190 Republicans and 144 independents who said they would vote in the Republican primary.

It’s all over for Hayworth. Hate to say it, but the trend is not our friend.
And here McCain had to fake being a conservative for nothing.
Lord have mercy!
McCain probably has a solid lead, but this poll is way off.
At least he’s not running for prez again.
HA HA HA HA!!!!!!
Who did they poll? McCain staff members?
(I doubt he is that high among even them)
I just came from 6 months in AZ and found not one single McLame supporter
I smell BS.
No, it wasn’t for nothing. He had to spend $20 million to convince everyone he was more conservative then JD. BTW, that’s money you and I gave to help in the campaign against Obama. McCain had it “left over” so he spent it taking down JD.
No vote for RINO John ever!
I love Sarah Palin but she will be responsible for giving the Republican Party 6 more years of hemorrhoids should the gelding win.
334 people and they can "read" the whole state? WTF? sould like a PR for McCain and nothing more.
For more accuracy in polling,
"Senator John McCain continues to lead Arizonas hotly contested Republican Senate Primary contest but his level of support is stuck in a narrow range between 47% and 53%"...."
Agreed. 19% is what a candidate draws with no name recognition and no campaign.
JD did this to himself. It was his race to lose.
I’ll not vote for him ever again.
Even against the Obamaidiot.
That’s how much I despise this piece of chicken dung.
