Arizona has two Democratic U.S. senators for the first time since the 1950s, but their hold on the swing-state seats could be tenuous, according to recent polling.
Sen. Mark Kelly, who is up for reelection next year, and Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, who doesn’t have to run again until 2024, each are viewed more unfavorably than favorably by likely Arizona voters, according to findings by OH Predictive Insights.
“Both Sinema and Kelly have work to do if they want to hold onto their seats,” Mike Noble, the Phoenix-based firms chief of research said in a press release.
“For Sinema, she must rebuild some of the bridges she seems to have burned with voters in her own party. For Kelly, he will likely have to navigate a midterm environment with an unpopular Democratic president.”
The findings reported Monday by OH Predictive Insights were based on an opt-in panel survey conducted Nov. 1-8, with a margin of error of 3.7%.
