Poll: 64 Percent Of GOP Arizona Voters Want McCain Gone In 2016

A new Citizens United Political Victory Fund poll shows that Republican Arizona voters have had it with Sen. John McCain, even though the senator has signaled his intentions to run for a sixth term in 2016.

According to the poll, 64.2 percent of likely GOP primary voters said that they are ready for someone new to take the job and only 29.3 percent signaled a willingness to re-elect McCain.

The poll also shows that McCain loses to other potential Arizona Repubican candidates in a primary.

McCain loses to Gov. Jan Brewer 47.7 percent to 29 percent and to Rep. Matt Salmon 48.2 percent to 30.3 percent. Rep. David Schweikert earns 40.1 percent support from those polled with McCain at 33.9 percent.

The poll was conducted by The Polling Company Inc. for the Citizens United Political Victory Fund. It surveyed 600 likely 2016 Republican primary voters in Arizona and has a 4.1 percent margin of error.

“This poll coupled with a poll released last month shows John McCain is in very big trouble as he is thinking about a sixth term in the United States Senate. Arizonans are ready for change; especially Republicans who according to these results want a real conservative to represent them in Washington,” David N. Bossie, President of Citizens United, told Breitbart News.

McCain, who lost a presidential bid to Barack Obama in 2008, has long-championed amnesty in the Senate. The issue emerged in a primary challenge in 2010, during which McCain adopted the slogan "build the dang fence!" After securing re-election, however, McCain went on to help shepherd through the controversial "Gang of Eight" immigration bill through the Senate.

The poll found GOP voters oppose the Gang of Eight bill by a 64-30 margin.

Last time he had a primary challenge he put $23 million into keeping his job. That’s just what he spent on the primacy. If Satan put that much into a campaign he could get elected by a comfortable margin.

THEN GO TO THE POLLS AND VOTE HIM OUT!

Honestly, I feel the same way about Graham and I intend to do just that. I can’t do anything about McCain, though.

But at magic moment when they push their touchscreens or fill out their ballots they won’t associate “gone” with “vote for somebody else”.

The man is a scourge.

Only 64%?

That number should be closer to 90% or more.

The fact that it’s not is a testimony to how screwed we are.

I am seriously to the point I would vote for a dim if he got past the primary (and I lived in AZ).

He was way nastier to J D Hayworth than he was to Obama.

I no longer care how much time he spent in Nam. His nation has paid him back. I still think something happened to his brain in there - frequently way too willing to accommodate the other side of the aisle. Of course he's not the only one...

Not to worry. This poll sounds good, but I can guarantee that the usual idiots here will fall over themselves to vote for McCain in 2016. To paraphrase Mark Twain, McCain is part of the permanent Washington Criminal Class snd will remain so.

The polls are meaningless. The polls weren’t so good for Harry Reid last time around either, but he won. I predict McCain will pull this one out again. Will he do it honestly? No, but he will win with a lot of help from his friends, who are mostly RINOs and Democrats. I predict that Democrats will be encouraged to switch party for the primary and vote for McCain. Large sums of money will be pumped into the state. And of course the support from the national Republican party will go to McCain.

Arizona voters rejecting McCain? I’ll believe it when I see it. McCain was already reelected once after the Tea Party. Lindsey Graham is in the lead in his primary, along with lots of other Obama Republicans.

Little hope for GOP on immigrants, study shows; legalization won’t change wave

By Stephen Dinan

-

The Washington Times

Monday, April 14, 2014

After President Obama won re-election in 2012 and collected 71 percent of the Hispanic vote, some Republican political consultants and party leaders said they needed to adjust their stance on immigration to win over those voters.

An influx of immigrants has boosted the Democratic Party, and that trend is set to continue. Even in places where Republicans support legalization of illegal immigrants, the party hasn’t been able to stem those changes, according to a study being released Tuesday.

James Gimpel, a professor at the University of Maryland, said in a report being released by the Center for Immigration Studies that many of those in the recent wave of immigrants trail native-born Americans on education and skills and favor a broader scope for government action, which makes them “ideal recruits for the Democratic Party.”
