Excerpted from The Daily Caller: In the hours before Democrat Richard Carmona and Republican Rep. Jeff Flake face off in their first debate, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) released an internal poll showing Carmona leading in the increasingly tight race for the Arizona Senate seat.
The poll, conducted by Harstad Strategic Research, Inc., found Carmona ahead with 47 percent to Flake’s 43 percent.
The poll found Carmona successfully wooing non-Democratic voters. It shows Carmona with a narrow edge among independent voters, leading 51 percent to 47 percent, and he pulls more Republican voters than Flake pulls Democrats: Carmona gets 17 percent of Republicans, compared to Flakes’ 73 percent; while Flake gets the vote of only 7 percent of Democrats to Carmona’s 84 percent.
