Axios: Senate Seats in AZ, NV, and TN– Currently Held by Republicans – at Risk, and “DACA is the Biggest Warning Sign for Republicans”

 

new poll released today by Beltway outlet Axios finds that Republican-held Senate seats in Arizona, Nevada, and Tennessee may be at risk of flipping. The Democratic candidates in each of three states are currently leading or in statistical ties with Republican counterparts. Alexi McCammond of Axios analyzes the exclusive poll:

“DACA is the biggest warning sign for Republicans: 64% of voters across all three states support protections for immigrants brought illegally to the U.S. as children, and 71% support offering immigrants a chance to apply for citizenship rather than deporting them.”

According to Matt Hildreth, Political Director of America’s Voice:

“Donald Trump has left the GOP in moral bankruptcy and the ‘coalition of the decent’ will be calling to collect on Republicans this November. The Trump Administration is attacking the very core of what it means to be an American, and Republicans running for Senate in Arizona, Nevada and Tennessee have refused to take a stand. This poll once again shows that voters reject the Trump political playbook of fear and division – and believe strongly in our values of liberty and justice for all. Voters, even in red states, strongly back legislation that protects Dreamers, because they know America is a nation founded on an ideal that all people are created equal.”

In Arizona, by a 75-24% margin, voters support providing undocumented immigrants with a chance to apply for legal status instead of being deported. And by a 67-31% margin, Arizona voters support DACA.

In Nevada, by a 72-27% margin, voters support providing undocumented immigrants with a chance to apply for legal status instead of being deported. And by a 62-34% margin, Nevada voters support DACA.

In Tennessee, by a 67-31% margin, voters support providing undocumented immigrants with a chance to apply for legal status instead of being deported. And by a 63-34% margin, Tennessee voters support DACA.
