AZ-Sen: NYT/Siena Poll Has Mark Kelly (D) Leading Martha McSally (R) 50-43

3 min read

I’m sure you heard this news today out of Arizona courtesy of the New York Times/Siena College’s latest poll:


In the closing days of the campaign, Mr. Biden has a modest advantage in Florida, where he is ahead of Mr. Trump by three points, 47 percent to 44 percent, a lead that is within the margin of error. He leads by six points in both Arizona and Pennsylvania. In no state did Mr. Trump’s support climb higher than 44 percent.

The margin of error is 3.2 percentage points in Wisconsin and Florida; 3 points in Arizona and 2.4 points in Pennsylvania.

Mr. Biden has consistently held the upper hand over Mr. Trump across the electoral map in polling conducted by The Times since late last spring. While that advantage has varied over time, and has differed from state to state, he has at no point slipped behind Mr. Trump in any of the swing states that are likeliest to decide the election.

There’s also some very good news today regarding the Arizona U.S. Senate race:


Emerson also released their poll and showed a tighter race:


What’s clear is Republicans are scared about Tuesday and McSally has been pleading with voters to save her:

“You all know why this is the most consequential election in our life,” Ms. McSally told the crowd inside the local Republican headquarters, flanked by cardboard cutouts of Mr. Trump and former President Ronald Reagan. “They’re coming after our county. They’re coming after our state.”

Still, Ms. McSally tried to strike a cheerful tone.

“We’re on the verge of a great American comeback,” she said to a round of cheers.

By the way, great response from Kelly on this:

Democratic Senate candidate Mark Kelly on Friday criticized President Trump’s treatment of Kelly's opponent, Sen. Martha McSally (R-Ariz.), calling it “unfortunate.”

Trump had rushed McSally during an Arizona rally this week to finish her remarks, telling her she had one minute to talk and to be quick.

“They don’t want to hear this Martha, come on let’s go,” he said as McSally took the stage to speak.

“The President of the United States should have respect for an Arizona senator,” Kelly, a former astronaut and McSally’s Democratic challenger, told MSNBC.
