New Ariz. Poll Shows Mccain Leading GOP Challenger (64 percent to 19)
http://www.newsmax.com ^ | 14 Jul 2010 | www.newsmax.com

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.

Looks like the "Free Money Govt Money" infomercial didn't help Hayworth. I'm surprised Deakin isn't doing better in the anti-incumbent environment.

It’s all over for Hayworth. Hate to say it, but the trend is not our friend.

McCain probably has a solid lead, but this poll is way off.

Who did they poll? McCain staff members?

I just came from 6 months in AZ and found not one single McLame supporter

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.

I'd bet this 'Behavior Research Center' poll is off by at least 20%.

For more accuracy in polling,

"Arizona Senate GOP Primary: McCain 52%, Hayworth 40%"

"Senator John McCain continues to lead Arizona’s hotly contested Republican Senate Primary contest but his level of support is stuck in a narrow range between 47% and 53%"...."

-end snip-

Agreed. 19% is what a candidate draws with no name recognition and no campaign.

Just another straw-grasping attempt by the McCain camp to get JD supporters to give up. Personally, I like Deakin... but I’d rather have JD than McCain.

That's how the Obamaidiots win. If McQueer gives us control of the Senate I would vote for him provided he was the only AZ Republican candidate.

She certainly played a significant and terrible role. If McCain wins, it means the RINOs are still very much a force in the GOP and America has little hope left.

I have a feeling the debates will greatly help JD as McCain was a disaster in debating Obama and Obama wasn't particularly good.

Obviously, JD has quite a hill to climb. He has my hopes and prayers and sometimes huge upsets happen.

Looks like the "Free Money Govt Money" infomercial didn't help Hayworth.

I suppose if you're running as a fiscal conservative and do an infomercial like that, it doesn't help.

But do the people of Arizona have short memories? Have they forgotten why they needed the Arizona illegal alien law in the first place? John McCain was going to push for amnesty for these invaders, the same ones who murdered their fellow citizen, the rancher (name escapes me at the moment)! Have they forgotten how often this man "crosses the aisle" and stabs his fellow party in the back? There is no way I'd vote for this guy if I lived in Arizona.

J.D. needs to be doing more to remind the voters of what they will get if John McCain wins the primary.

Palin has nothing to do with it.
She has no control over AZ voters. Many of her supporters do not agree with her on this and will support JD.
Didn't take long for the Sarah strawman to be posted.

1. Arizona has an open primary (both parties can vote for McCain)
2. It’s never easy to unseat an incumbent from your own party
3. Hundreds of Palin commercials flooding the radio airwaves
4. Multiple Palin appearances with McCain in Arizona
5. Multiple Palin appearances on television supporting him
6. McCain shills flooding the internet with disinformation and disruption

Yep, it was J. D.’s to lose all right. And the sun is frozen solid too.

I’ll have to admit, it looks that way to me too.

McCain and his pond scum boosters, have pulled out every dirty trick in the book this go-round.

What else did he have..., his own record?

Perhaps Duncan Hunter and Jim DeMint should have campaigned strongly for Hayworth then he would be sitting on a 64pc favorable, right?
Which begs the question, why haven't more conservative pols been conspicuously supportive of Hayworth?

But the illegal immigration issue has just been revived in AZ and how can you not capitalize on that when McCain was so very very bad?

That's just silly. Palin has more clout with Republican voters than any other national figure. She used this clout to strengthen the hand of the anti-conservatives. Why she did this does not make any difference. She will "own" a McCain victory and all of the future backstabbing that entails.

yes the primaries are open - they had a big soap opera about closing them, but then they dropped the ball and decided to leave them open.

you bet you booty that either dems or mcLAME himself is fueling this poll...it’s bogus.

McCain should retire and let some fresh conservative blood go from Arizona to DC.

C’mon Arizonans wake up and don’t support McCain in the primary! You are leading the fight in the nation against illegal immigration - now put someone in new office who truly supports your views and won’t sell you out down the road.

This is yet another reason why America needs Congressional Term Limits - over the long haul it would literally save this country literally trillions (yes, Trillions) of taxpayer’s dollars. It’s a crying shame the Founding Fathers didn’t have the foresight put this in the Bill of Rights - now we have way too many Congressmen punch drunk on their own power, placing their own political interests above the safety and welfare of our nation and those generations to come. Those who do are despicable traitors and parasites - I hope as many as possible will be swept out in November.

5 for the House and 2 for the Senate!
