On the day of President Donald Trump’s visit to Phoenix, the latest poll delivered grim news to U.S. Sen. Jeff Flake, one of the president’s most vocal critics within his party.
The poll shows Flake losing to contenders in both the primary and general elections.
The poll, which was conducted by Phoenix consulting firm HighGround, shows Flake down by double digits to primary challenger Kelli Ward, a former legislator, who leads 42.5 to 28.2 percent.
According to the poll, 5 percent support another candidate while 24 percent didn’t answer.
In the general election, the poll shows Flake losing to U.S. Rep. Kyrsten Sinema, who is considering challenging Flake for his U.S. Senate seat.
Sinema leads Flake 40.5 to 32.5 percent, with 27 percent saying they don’t know who they would vote for or who refused to answer.
In a head-to-head matchup, HighGround’s poll gives Sinema a slight advantage over Ward, though the congresswoman’s lead is well within the margin of error.
