Poll shows Jeff the Flake getting crushed.

Arizona Republican Primary: Kelli Ward 58%, Jeff Flake 31%

Poll shows Flake down huge in primary and general election

A new poll shows Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) down by huge numbers among Arizona Republicans and trailing his opponents in both the GOP primary and general elections.

Flake scored only a 25 percent favorability rating among Republican primary voters in a new poll by the left-leaning GBA Strategies group, with a 56 percent unfavorable rating. Over half of voters disapprove of the job Flake is doing, with 59 percent disapproving and only 34 percent approving.

A consistent critic of President Trump, Flake authored a book called "Conscience of a Conservative: A Rejection of Destructive Politics and a Return to Principle," calling on the GOP to reject many of the populist and economic protectionist policies advocated by the president.

The survey also shows Flake trailing Republican primary opponent Kelli Ward in a head-to-head matchup 58-31 percent. He trails by more than 20 points among registered Republicans and unaffiliated voters and is behind in every region in the state.

Among general election voters, Flake also suffers negative ratings across party lines. Independents give Flake only a 20 percent favorability rating and a 50 percent unfavorable rating, similar to the Democrats' ratings of 17 percent favorable and 51 percent unfavorable.
