And that is why I have no faith in elections ever turning this country around. Stupid, stupid voters.
Perhaps we should praise JD, after all in a few months he forced McCain to take some conservative positions. Something we could not accomplish for a decade.
Looks like AZ Repubs prefer their conservatism very diluted.

...he forced McCain to take some conservative positions.
I can't disagree. Now we need to hold McCain's feet to the fire to maintain those positions. But my point is that JD is, well, JD.

No, she doesn't. There are a lot of Sarah supporters who disagree with Sarah's endorsement of McCain and have contributed to JD. I am one of them.
Quit using guilt-by-association tactics. Not all of Palin's supporter are robots.
And Sarah Palin isn’t an idiot.
I’m not crazy about McCain over the POW issue - but he’s not a communist. He’s very fiscally responsible - not a horrific thing - and Hayworth is a clown.
The poll is doctored. Of course McRINO would be leading among his natural constituency (Democrats) and squishes ("independents").
524 registered voters
Oh, and by the way, FUJM!
McCain has been running to the right of Barry Goldwater to achieve this. As soon as he wins he will go right back to his old ways.
Has anyone noticed that the dumb blonde daughter is not appearing anywhere pushing same sex marriage etc?
Mark my words, if McLame wins, he’ll spend the next 4 years seeking revenge on conservatives for making him spend money for his re-election.
He will make Obama look conservative just out of spite.
“McCain leading former U.S. Rep. J.D. Hayworth 64 percent to 19 percent. Political newcomer Jim Deakin had 5 percent.” Thanks Maelstorm. Seriously, is there anyone who was the least surprised by this?
I hope this isn’t accurate.
The first debate is this Friday at 7:00 p.m. It should be streaming at the azcentral.com website.
1. Arizona has an open primary (both parties can vote for McCain)
2. Its 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.You forgot #7. Outspent $12,500,000.00 to $575,000.00
I live in Arizona, and this poll is BULL$HIT
No, she doesn't.
Who do you think has more clout with Republican voters? Whose endorsement would Republican Candidates want more than Palin's?
How is JD going to explain almost a decade of support for McCain? Don’t get me wrong I like JD. However, he’s like the piano player in the whorehouse.
mcCain will revert back as soon as he wins the election. You cannot be McCain (politically) for fifty years then switch over night.
You might have answered you own question.
Wrong. Another BS poll like the phony Daily Kos polls that Soros was running for McCain. Still a lot of McCainiac AH’s on FR.
Oh BS, Sarah Palin isn’t responsible for reelecting McCain no matter how many times shebacks him. The voters are responsible for it Sarah is not holding a gun to anyones head to make him vote for McCain.
Soros funded the phony Daily Kos polls that were discredited to try to save McCain. This is BS.
MCCain-Feingold handed America to the Democrats, Islamics and Saudis. F McCain.
Hayworth is getting buried. This isn’t even close.
What went wrong? Bad candidate?
I am skeptical of this poll.
“Perhaps we should praise JD, after all in a few months he forced McCain to take some conservative positions. Something we could not accomplish for a decade.”
Yea, once he’s re-elected we’ll see exactly how many conservative positions he’s adopted. People never learn, and voters have to be among the most gullible people on the planet. It’s sort of how we tried to warn people during the last election that Obama’s speeches didn’t reflect his actual policies. And McCain has so many, many years on record that anyone falling for his flip-flops at this point is doing so on purpose.
The old JD would shine at debates. His radio time should of only polished that.
I guess Republicans are not much different from the Dhims. They follow what the ‘leaders’ tell them to do. /s
Sounds like the pollsters contacted people who were at home sucking on the Welfare teat,
instead of away from their home phone because they were working that day.
McCain can't be trusted. Most likely he will revert back to his old ways.
Look, time to wake up and face facts. We can't just go around assuming that every poll that shows a result we don't like is bogus. We did that in 2008....and look how that turned out. Everybody assumed Rasmussen was in 0bama's pocket because he was showing 0bama ahead by 5% going into election day. That is, until 0bama won by 5%.
Take home message for any smart person who bothered to pay attention was that we can't just automatically assume that any poll we don't like is made up, cooked, or otherwise fenagled. MSM polls - yes, you can make that assumption. Polls from houses that actually have to try to be right to stay in business? No.
Nor does pointing this out mean that someone supports McCain. Sad to say, but Hayworth is probably not going to win this one, barring some major sea changes in the way the race goes between now and whenever the primary is. I'd love to see Hayworth win, but the scuttlebutt on the ground in AZ that I'm getting from folks is that a lot of people who don't like McCain also genuinely don't like Hayworth, either.
>> why haven’t more conservative pols been conspicuously supportive of Hayworth? <<
They may know about the infomercial and don’t like the tenor of that unfortunate affair.
Geez, what kind of commercials is mccain running in AZ anyway?
What? The McCain is a RINO and I hate McCain strategy isn’t working?
J.D. is a buffoon and the infomercial of him showing how to get free government monies made my stomach turn. There is a reason this loser got drummed out of The House.
Can we get a real non-moron conservative next time? One who pracitces what he preaches. Please?
Well Ari-Freedom, it could be as simple as McCain having $12.5 million to spend and Hayworth only having a half a mil to spend. And then Sarah opened her mouth wide to hawk McCain. On top of that, the Democrats will be voting for McCain too in the primary.
It’s really tough to overcome those dynamics.
If Hayworth had the $12.5 million, and John only had $500k, I guarantee you McCain would have been screaming bloody murder and telling everyone how unfair it was.
John is a fraud. I have to believe the good people of Arizona know it. Still, when you have the Democrats helping to select the Conservative candidate, what can you expect, especially when your own side is doing everything it can to bury you too?
I was glad J. D. entered the race. I give him kudos for having done so.
“Palin has nothing to do with it.”
When other candidates (mostly front runners) she supported won their nomination, many folks on FR claimed it was due to her.
If McCain wins, let’s see how many people here recognize her endorsement for his success the way they did in the other races.
Can’t have it both ways.
Beyond that crap....
I think it was a mistake for her to endorse McCain. Really took away the tough ‘hockey mom’, independent thinker image she was trying to create. It would have been better for her to have not endorsed either in the race, but best for HER to support JD. Her endorsements means zilch to me (nobody’s does) and now I know to look more at the opponents of those she does support.
Is the breakdown on registrations about the same as the breakdown on that sampling?
Ouch. That number seven is a killer.
I was very critical of her when she endorsed him, and all the Sarahbots pelted me with: “She had to do it out of loyalty! She’s just being loyal! What did you expect her to do?” I expected her to be loyal to her convictions, not to a politician.
Nuts! That’s devastating news. Next to his boy-toy, Lindsey Graham, McCain is the biggest RINO in the US Senate.
Thanks alot Sarah!
That’s what the people of AZ say, and who is surprised? They would probably adopt Lovable Lindsey if he moved to AZ too. I would imagine that quite a few of the most uninformed of AZ actually think voting for McPain is “sticking it” to Obama.
You are so right. Really, they can't learn. It takes work to master political matters.
No, the people of AZ don’t know that McPain is a fraud. They think he is honest, courageous, a fighter, a wonderful statesman. Truly they are delusional.
That's it in a nutshell. She lost my support over that. BIG mistake!
