Donald Trump’s popularity is growing like a desert flower. With every new day, a new poll is coming out, and John McCain is despondent.
Trump is no fan of McCain, and vice versa. According to reports, McCain could lose his Senate Seat if Trump drives a large turn out, and if yesterday’s riots are of any indication, precisely such a thing can happen:
Both Mccain and Trump are on the ballot in the key Tuesday Primary:
Arizona Sen. John McCain is facing his toughest re-election battle in his five terms on Capitol Hill — as angry voters target Washington insiders and polls show him running neck-and-neck with Democratic challenger Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick.
“The basic problem for John McCain is the same kind of thing that faces a lot of incumbents right now,” former Grand Canyon State GOP Rep. Jim Kolbe, who served 18 years with McCain, told The Hill. “He’s been there a long time.
“People are leery of Washington. They don’t like Washington.
“This is a very tough challenge, probably the toughest race that he’s faced since he was first elected,” Kolbe said.
Donald Trump also is a factor in the race — Arizona’s primary is on Tuesday — and the Republican presidential front-runner’s stance on illegal immigration and other issues has riled Hispanics, a huge voting block in the state.
“I don’t see how Donald Trump helps any incumbent Republicans,” Kolbe told the Hill.
