WTF is Bernie here instead of in Arizona?

The Bernie could push McCain out! Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) is facing his toughest re-election of his career, thanks in part the unpopularity of Donald Trump at the top of the ticket. McCain recently withdrew his endorsement of Trump.

At a Yavapai County early voting site this week, Mike Smith, a registered independent, said Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) disavowing Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump would actually help the lawmaker win his sixth term to the U.S. Senate.

“Because people are basically decent,” said Smith, a retired pharmacist who lives in nearby Sedona.

At a Maricopa County voting site some 120 miles to the south, a registered Republican who supports Trump and spoke on the condition of anonymity was considerably less forgiving of McCain.

“I may not vote for him,” she said. “I’m very disappointed in him.”

 

He followed up on that sentiment during Tuesday night’s debate with his challenger, Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick (D) from the Flagstaff area.

“When Mr. Trump attacks women,” McCain said, “that is a point where I just have to part company. It’s not pleasant for me to renounce the nominee of my party.”

The polls are not clear yet.  Before the revelation  McCain held a safe 10-point lead ― however,no numbers have been released recently enough to take into account McCain’s rejection of Trump in a state where the core of the GOP vote are is Trumpian,  white, lesser-educated angry voters .

 

“He was desperate to get my endorsement,” Trump said Tuesday on Bill O’Reilly’s program. “I gave him the endorsement because he needed it for the primary, and frankly, he ran against a very, very good woman. I feel very badly, I gave him the endorsement.” Trump has not urged his supporters to withhold their votes from the Republican members of Congress who refuse to endorse him ― at least not yet.

 

Mike Smith, who is getting ready to walk into the Yavapai County elections office and cast his ballot for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Kirkpatrick for Senate.

“McCain’s been there past his sell date,” he said.
