New Poll Shows Democrat Grijalva Faces Tough Re-Elect

On Monday, the Summit Consulting Group released a poll showing that Democrat Raul Grijalva could lose his seat in Congress to Republican candidate Ruth McClung.

Republican Challenger Ruth McClung Within Striking Distance

PHOENIX, AZ – A recent survey conducted by Phoenix-based Summit Consulting Group, Inc. shows four-term Democrat Congressman Raul Grijalva in a surprisingly tough re-election campaign against Republican Challenger Ruth McClung.

An automated survey conducted between October 4th and 5th among 1,807 likely general election voters shows McClung clearly within striking distance of beating Grijalva in Congressional District 7 which encompasses a large swath of southwestern Arizona.

When asked the question,

“In the upcoming general election for Congress, do you plan on supporting Democrat Raul Grijalva, Republican Ruth McClung, or are you undecided?”

 

The results were:

Raul Grijalva                  37%

Ruth McClung               39%

Undecided                    24%

Based on the results, McClung has locked down the Republican base, losing only 5% to Grijalva.  She earns 18% among Democrat voters and a whopping 42% among Independents.

The sample included voters who have participated in the last two general elections and was in line with the current voter registration numbers.   Democrats comprised 43%, Republican voters 24% and Independent, Party Not Determined and Other Party were 33% of the sample used.

The margin of error is +/-3%.

Arizona District 7 Upset – Grijalva May Lose to McClung

AZ-7 has been thought safe from the left side of the isle for quite some time.  Some of Obama’s “Change” may have come to town as the race is now considered to be a dead heat.  Conservatives, get ready – Ruth McClung needs your support, effort, money and most-of-all, your vote.

I ran across this post at theotherMcCain.com where Stacy McCain references Politico.com

Raul Grijalva getting beat by Ruth McClungAdd Rep. Raul Grijalva to the growing list of Democratic worries this election season.
Party operatives say there’s increasing concern that theArizona Democrat’s reelection bid could turn into a “sleeper” race for Republicans after Grijalva — responding to enactment of a tough new immigration law — called for an economic boycott of his own state amid a housing crisis and record unemployment.
Four Democratic sources from different parts of the country said that there is new attention to a race that was long considered in the bag.
And a recent poll, obtained by POLITICO, found thatGrijalva and Republican challenger Ruth McClung, a real-life rocket scientist, were in a dead heat, even though Washington prognosticators have declared the deep-blue seat safely Democratic.
As they work to buttress their majority against a coming Republican storm, Democrats can ill afford to spend time or resources defending incumbents in seats where they should have a clear advantage. But the Grijalva seat potentially being in play is a sign of the increasingly expanding Republican playing fieldfor the midterm elections. . . .

Just as Stacy points out, you absolutely must read the whole article.

Grijalvo has managed to actually turn against his own constituents, ignore the will of the people that voted for him and somehow stay in power?  Arizona .. this is your wake-up call.  If Stacy’s post wasn’t enough, I found this gem on AceofSpadesHQ.

While Ace focuses at first on looks, which I agree, Raul loses hands-down, the article continues to make some strong points.  He talks about a politco.com article where the Democrats are showing just how much of a bind McClung has put Grijalva into.
