"Assuming J.D. Hayworth is able to raise the funds and nomination signatures he needs to qualify for the ballot, it may remain difficult for many observers to imagine how he will be able to knock off a sitting GOP Senator the stature of John McCain who only a year ago proved his campaign skills when he won the presidential nomination of his party and who is now reputed to have a campaign war chest that might impress even the Mayor of New York," the pollster said in a release. "A McCain - Hayworth primary however will undoubtedly provide voters with much entertainment as the two argue about which one is the more conservative and worthy of trust."
The pollster contacted 800 Arizonans between Jan. 7 and 22. The margin of error for the poll is 5%.
