On Tuesday, the survey showed that 48 percent of likely voters support Sinema while 45 percent favor McSally. The Democrat is only three points ahead, which means the candidates are statistically tie or within the margin of error.

Among all registered voters, 47 percent said they will vote for Sinema while 44 percent for McSally. The Democrat’s advantage is the same. It appears that the Republican senate candidate continues to gain support. In June, Sinema had a double-digit lead against McSally among registered voters.

In August, President Donald Trump endorsed McSally. The president described her as “extraordinary woman” and a “very talented fighter jet pilot.” He also stated that the Republican senate candidate is “strong on crime.”
