Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are in a virtual tie in Arizona, with the Republican nominee at 46 percent and his Democratic counterpart at 45 percent, according to a Monmouth University poll released on Tuesday.
In the survey, Libertarian Party nominee Gary Johnson has 4 percent and Green Party nominee Jill Stein is at 1 percent.
In the Senate race, five-term incumbent Republican John McCain holds a 50 percent to 40 percent lead over Democratic Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick, with 4 percent supporting the Green Party's Gary Swing.
Other results from the poll include:
- Among non-white voters, Clinton holds a 67 percent to 27 percent advantage over Trump;
- Among white voters, Trump leads 56 percent to 35 percent;
- Trump holds a 66 percent to 28 percent margin among white voters without a college degree;
- Among those who say they have already voted, Clinton has a 52 percent to 42 percent advantage. About 40 percent of those polled say they have already cast a ballot;
- In the Senate race, Hispanics are evenly divided at 46 percent for both McCain and Kirkpatrick;
- McCain gets the support of 79 percent of Trump voters and 19 percent of Clinton voters, while Kirkpatrick has the support of 77 percent of Clinton voters and only 9 percent of Trump backers.
The Monmouth University Poll was conducted from Oct. 21-24, with a margin of error of +/- 4.9 percent.
If Clinton does manage to pull off a victory in Arizona, it would halt a trend in which the strongly Republican state has chosen the Democratic nominee only once in the past 64 years.
