    AZ POLL: Sen. McCain Under 50 Percent, Extraordinarily Vulnerable

    Five-term incumbent Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) has good reason to fear a primary challenge. Newly released data from liberal-leaning Public Policy Polling shows half of Arizona’s Republican primary voters disapprove of McCain’s job performance, and more than half would prefer a more conservative Senate candidate in 2016.

    After more than three decades in Washington, McCain earns merely 41 percent approval from Arizona Republicans and 36 percent from general Arizona voters, PPP finds. Just 37 percent reported a willingness to support the Senator in his 2016 re-election bid.

    In the days leading up to his re-election declaration, McCain and wife Cindy each released letters asking for financial support.

    Notably, 51 percent of those surveyed in the poll indicated a desire for someone more conservative than Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) as the 2016 Republican candidate for U.S. Senate in Arizona.

    The result comes as little surprise, considering that members of McCain’s own party officially censured him on the basis that he has “amassed a long and terrible record of drafting, co-sponsoring and voting for legislation best associated with liberal Democrats, such as Amnesty, funding for ObamaCare, the debt ceiling, assaults on the Constitution and 2nd amendment, and has continued to support liberal nominees.”

    Since that censure, McCain has accordingly voiced expectation that he will face a primary challenger in 2016.

    Large percentages of survey respondents took no position, favorable or unfavorable, on potential McCain challengers Representative Rep. Matt Salmon (R-AZ) or Rep. David Schweikert (R-AZ), State Senator Kelli Ward or former gubernatorial candidate Christine Jones.

    With the 2016 primary elections still a year away, McCain’s extensive tenure gives him a big advantage in name ID. Still, every potential McCain challenger measured against the incumbent fell short of overcoming him, though all came within striking distance.

    According to poll results, “McCain leads Rep. David Schweikert (R-AZ) 40/39, Rep. Matt Salmon (R-AZ) 42/40, Kelli Ward 44/31, and Christine Jones 48/27.”

    State Senator Ward has come the closest to declaring. She opened an exploratory committee in April and has been weighing whether the financial and logistical path to victory is there. She has characterized a McCain challenge as a classic David versus Goliath battle.

    Arizonans have a vested interest in border security as residents of a border state. McCain’s critics are unlikely to let the entrenched Washington legislator forget the 2010 “build the danged fence” campaign that McCain launched to shore up his conservative record. But as many continue to point out, there’s still no “danged fence.”

    Each potential challenger is said to have time yet to make an official decision and it appears they are taking that time to weigh whether each can gather the necessary support to take on the political goliath.

    I wonder if John McCain's supporters are working behind the scenes right now to hire another vote splitter to get on the ballot to protect him like they did with Jim Deakin 5 years ago.

    I didn't know that! Well, I certainly hope Arizona is finally waking up to the fact that just because you were a POW in Vietnam, doesn't necessarily make you a capable representative of the people of the United States.
