A new poll from Phoenix-based Behavior Research Center shows Sen. John McCain with a commanding lead over former Rep. J.D. Hayworth in Arizona's closely watched Senate primary fight.
According to AZCentral.com, McCain leads former radio host Hayworth by 26 points, noting that the statewide survey of 666 Arizona voters was conducted between April 12 and April 25 includes Republicans and GOP-leaning independents, who indicated they intend to participate in the Aug. 24 Republican primary.
The site reported that of those primary voters, McCain leads Hayworth 54 percent to 28 percent with another 18 percent undecided.
The website indicated McCain will glide into a November re-election if he wins the August primary:
"In a potential general election battle against former Tucson Vice Mayor Rodney Glassman, the leading Democratic Senate candidate, McCain is ahead 46 percent to 24 percent with a significant 30 percent uncommitted," the poll says.
The poll had a margin of error of plus or minus 3.5 percent.
