Arizona Senate Race Virtually Tied, Per New NBC News Poll

The Arizona U.S. Senate race is quickly turning into one of the tightest contests in this year’s midterm elections. A new poll, conducted by NBC News/Marist College, found Democrat Kyrsten Sinema and Republican Martha McSally in a statistical tie with six weeks to go until Election Day.

Sinema leads McSally, 45-43, among likely voters, according to the poll. Green Party nominee, the aptly named Angela Green, earned six percent of the vote. Sinema’s two-point margin falls within the poll’s 3.7-percent margin of error.

Prior to McSally clinching the GOP nomination in August, Sinema, who ran virtually unopposed in her primary, held a significant lead, 49-38. Tuesday’s poll marks a tightening in the Arizona Senate race.

Perhaps as a result of her difficult primary, McSally slightly trails Sinema in favorability among Arizona voters:

Overall, Sinema enjoys higher favorability numbers than her GOP rival, who endured a difficult primary contest from two GOP candidates who ran to her right. Forty-six percent of Arizona likely voters have a positive view of Sinema, compared to 33 percent who view her unfavorably. For McSally, on the other hand, just 40 percent view her favorably and 42 percent view her unfavorably.

On the gubernatorial front, Gov. Doug Ducey (R-AZ) leads his Democrat rival, David Garcia, 51-42.
