Arizona State Senator Kelli Ward, challenger to U.S. Senator John McCain , leads in a new poll covering the 2016 Senate race by nine percent.


As Written by Michelle Moons for Breitbart:

Her lead stands at nine percent.

Ward was the choice of 45 percent of the registered Arizona voters polled, while McCain only garnered 36 percent. 1,271 of the more than 1,400 voters polled say they intend to vote in the 2016 primary election. Approximately one fifth remained undecided at this early stage of the race.

Independent polling company Gravis Marketing conducted the August 15 poll. It surveyed 844 Republican primary voters and 427 Democratic.

These new McCain versus Ward results vary significantly from May.
