According to a new ABC15/OH Predictive Insights poll, GOP senatorial candidate Air Force veteran Martha McSally is widening her lead against Democrat Kyrsten Sinema 47%-41%. This is three points more than September’s poll, which had McSally leading 49%-46%. According to ABC15, Green Party candidate Angela Green may be the one to thank for picking off some of Sinema’s support. Fallout from the Kavanaugh chaos may also be benefitting McSally, as it is in multiple races across the country.

A new poll shows Arizona GOP senatorial candidate Martha McSally widening her lead against her Democratic opponent, Kyrsten Sinema, in the race to replace Senator Jeff Flake. The ABC15/OH Predictive Insights poll found McSally leading Sinema 47%-41%. In September, the same poll found in McSally leading 49%-46%.
As ABC15 reported, chief pollster Mike Noble said McSally was benefiting from the uniting of Republicans following the hearings for Justice Brett Kavanaugh, President Trump’s growing support, and the entrance in the race of Green Party candidate Angela Green, who siphoned off some of Sinema’s support.
Nobel stated, “What we saw all year was Republicans were less united compared to Democrats, who were more united or fully united. So whether they disliked Trump or had issues with the establishment, now what we’ve seen is [the] Kavanaugh confirmation process has really brought all those Republicans home and has solidified the Republican base, hence why you’re seeing all the favorable numbers toward McSally.”
