A new survey indicates that 6 out of 10 Republican voters in Arizona would rather elect a new candidate in two years than send Sen. John McCain back to Washington for a sixth term.
According to Citizens United Political Victory Fund,
which polled 600 likely GOP primary voters in Arizona on April 11-12, 64.2 percent said they are ready for someone new to take the job, and only 29.3 percent stated a desire to re-elect McCain.
Although his job approval-disapproval rating among Republicans statewide was evenly split, and his image only slightly unfavorable – the poll carried a +/- 4.1 percent margin for error – the poll indicated McCain would lose to other potential Arizona Republican candidates in a primary.
The survey had McCain losing 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 earned 40.1 percent support from those polled, with McCain getting 33.9 percent.
David N. Bossie, President of Citizens United, told Breitbart.com
that these polling numbers and those of another survey taken in March show McCain's re-election hopes to be "in very big trouble."
"Arizonans are ready for change," Bossie said, "especially Republicans, who according to these results, want a real conservative to represent them in Washington."
