McCain, Flake More Popular With Arizona Democrats Than Republicans

The news that senators John McCain and Jeff Flake are not popular with Arizona’s republicans comes as no surprise. However, according to the latest CBS News Battleground Tracker poll, the senators appear to be a tad more popular with democrats.

Given the abuse the two senators have heaped on conservatives, their favorability with progressives should come as no surprise either.

Just last week, Judicial Watch confirmed that McCain was behind the targeting of conservative groups by the IRS. The ADI reported that Judicial Watch “released newly obtained internal IRS documents, including material revealing that Sen. John McCain’s former staff director and chief counsel on the Senate Homeland Security Permanent Subcommittee, Henry Kerner, urged top IRS officials, including then-director of exempt organizations Lois Lerner, to “audit so many that it becomes financially ruinous.”

The CBS News Battleground Tracker poll found that 79 percent of President Trump’s supporters in Arizona also hold negative views of McCain.

“Retiring Republican Sen. Jeff Flake gets an unfavorable rating from more than half of the state’s voters,” reported “Here too, Republicans hold the most negative views. Democrats are more divided in their opinions of Flake than of McCain, but more than twice as many Democrats (35 percent) than Republicans (16 percent) rate Flake favorably.”

Over half of Arizona independents viewed McCain and Flake unfavorably while divided in their views of President Trump.

Flake opted to retire rather than seek re-election due to his plummeting poll numbers. He has used his waning time in office to take jabs at Trump on an almost daily basis.


  1. Why do Republicans admonish own folks when they do what best for all residence. I am waiting to here Rhino, ete…

    This is why nothing gets done. All I want for Christmas is elected folks who work for greater good of all residents.

    No more party you see what that done I. Washington DC. How about the State of Arizona. Those two entity are Republicans. Do not forget this City Mayor and Council and Board of Supervisor, Chuck Huckleberry. That group is Democrats.

    Simply put why is it so hard to do what best the the greater good/majority of residents.

    • you just answered your own question. The r’s expect something to be done, the left/democraps do it for their own self service/good ” Do not forget this City Mayor and Council and Board of Supervisor, Chuck Huckleberry. That group is Democrats.” Yes they are democraps and the people suffer for it.

      What has the democrap party done for the local citizens that PAY taxes for all their friviolities? Why with the taxes that exist do they NEED more to fix things THEY have ignored for the last 20 or so years? Where did all that MONEY GO?

    • I’m asking the same question Richard, Flake already quit, couldn’t get elected dog catcher in his districts by the people who elected him, he knew it, now he’s just become a vindictive AHOLE – the ‘other deep state’ but his wagon will only roll so far… being “R” is something these two know nothing about having turn costed to the globalist view

      • If you vote in the Republican primary for Governor, remember that Governor Ducey`s best and most important political allies are Senators McCain and Flake. All three are fake Republicans who have simply used the GOP for their personal ambitions and aims. Governor Ducey and Senators McCain and Flake favor open borders and amnesty.

    • You can’t work for the better good of all residents when half the country wants open borders, shared income, destruction of the Constitution, and free health care. The other half is not willing to pay for it.

      We want completely different things. I want half the country to take responsibility for themselves and their actions. They want to bring illegals in and win elections to punish success. Their greed would destroy our country.

      Where did they learn should greed and jealousy?

  2. McCain has been around for so long he surely pioneered the term RINO. I only hope both he and Flake usher out the last vestiges of any iota of what’s left of a RINO.

  3. And it looks like McCain’s toady McSally is going to get elected by the “conservatives” in the GOP. Anyone who would vote for McCains sycophant might as well be a democrat. Wake up folks, we get to pick our candidates in the primary so why are you still voting for the SOS Rinos?

  4. As long as ill-informed gullible people continue to vote for snake-oil salesmen pretending to be one thing while campaigning and quite the opposite after getting into office, we will have unctuous charlatans like John McCain, Jeff Flake, and Martha McSally wrongly representing the people of Arizona.

  5. They are more popular with democrats… because they are democrats! They infiltrated the GOP to derail and criticize, as well as attempt to bring down President Trump. Let it be noted that these two scoundrels were bought off by the obama admin, long before Trump. McCain pretended to run against obama and picking a poorly known candidate for VP, knowing full well he would lose thus no other viable GOP candidate would be able to run against and possibly win against obama, thus ensuring 4 more years of obama’s plan to help bring down this nation.
    More riots brought on by shooting of black citizens especially black teens. See, black youth bring out the tears and pulls at heart strings of most people with a heart.Dissension is the obama way,aka frank marshal,alinsky, margaret sanger et al.
    One good thing though these two who don’t believe in an afterlife of any kind will be screaming for cool water in the endlessness of eternity. I can wait.

  6. The back drop behind the Flake should have read “Face The Music”.
    Remember he’s the plagiarized book title thief “conscience of a conservative”.
    The RINOs are in locked step with the left against real conservatives which explains their hatred of Trump. Finally something bipartisan they can agree on.
