Establishment RINO squish John McCain ,79, corrupt liar Hillary Clinton’s favorite Republican, is not only facing a daunting primary challenge, but a new poll shows that even if he is able to advance to the general election, which is questionable, he may not be able to defeat his Democrat opponent in the largely red state of Arizona.
In the new February, Behavior Reseach Center’s Rocky Mountain Poll, a stunning 1-in-5 Republican voters will “reach across the aisle” (as McCain is prone to do) and embrace Democrat Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick , resulting in McCain now being in a statistical dead heat, erasing a six-point lead the entrenched incumbent temporarily enjoyed in November.
McCain, who replaced the legendary conservative Barry Goldwater in 1987, now has 38 percent (compared to 37 percent in November 2015) while Kirkpatrick has 37 percent (up from 31 percent in November).
Moreover, a whopping 39% of voters in McCain’s primary election are “uncommitted,” an amazingly high number considering his high name identification.

Former Arizona State Senator Dr. Kelli Ward, a Republican primary opponent who resigned her seat in December to concentrate full-time on defeating McCain, told PolitiStick about the poll results:
“This poll shows that Arizonians across the board have no faith that John McCain represents their best interests. This is a long race where the voters of Arizona will be able to weigh their options as time goes on.”
Amazingly, less that half of potential GOP primary voters would support McCain, a failed 2008 Republican presidential candidate who got trounced by Marxist Barack Obama, indicating a high level of vulnerability.
Kelli Ward, a constitutional conservative who has appeared on the Mark Levin Show as a guest who supports the Convention of States, is McCain’s closest challenger at 11 percent.
However, Arizona’s late primary date of August 30, leaves big-moneyed, amnesty supporting candidates plenty of time to play catch-up.
McCain’s millions have allowed him to flood the airwaves with lies and empty promises, like his embarrassing ad supposedly in favor of border security, “Build the Danged Fence.” McCain then went on to join Marco Rubio and Charles Schumer on the notorious “Gang of Eight” amnesty cabal.
Small businessman, radio host and FAIRtax proponent Alex Meluskey, who is also running a grassroots primary challenge to McCain, said that the Republican Party risks losing its Senate majority because of unprincipled politicians like John McCain:
“This poll shows how the Republican Party is once again in jeopardy of losing the Senate back over to the Democrats due to electing candidates that don’t have the principles or moral fortitude to say ‘enough is enough’ and to stand firm. John McCain has continually showed that he has no backbone, no principles, and no moral compass. If we don’t nominate a strong conservative who is more than just talk, we will continue losing elections and ceding our country to democratic socialists.”
While defeating an entrenched establishment cronyist like John McCain is always an uphill battle, but as was the case with Virginia’s RINO Eric Cantor , who at the time was the second most powerful man in the U.S. Congress, when an unknown, underfunded grassroots candidate Dave Brat, came out of nowhere and crushed Cantor, it can be done.
In 2014, McCain was embarrassingly censured by the Arizona GOP — his own party — for being a “RINO,” a “Republican-In-Name-Only.
In an election cycle environment where outsiders are getting 60-70% of the Republican vote, John McCain, who laughably endorsed fellow RINO Lindsey Graham for president, may just be this year’s version of Eric Cantor.
