CBS News and the YouGov polling organization again teamed up to survey several US Senate races. The first poll tested a potential general election campaign pitting US Rep. Kyrsten Sinema (D-Phoenix) against the three Republican candidates. The one GOP candidate performing best, unsurprisingly, is her Tucson Republican colleague, Martha McSally. Primary polling suggests that the two US House members are the current favorites to advance into the general election from the impending August 28th primary.
The Arizona poll (6/19-22; 1,001 AZ registered voters) finds Ms. Sinema leading Rep. McSally, 45-37%. If former state Sen. Kelli Ward were the Republican nominee, Rep. Sinema’s lead is a similar 46-38%. Former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio fares the worst. Against Rep. Sinema, he would trail 49-29%. The Arizona general election Senate race is predicted to be one of the most important contests in the country.
