GOING DOWN WITH THE PEQUOD:

Support of Trump Hurting Republican Senators   (Jim Williams, Public Policy Polling)'

New Public Policy Polling surveys of five major U.S. Senate races find that wide swaths of voters say that incumbent Republican Senators support for Donald Trump makes them less likely to vote to re-elect them, and that the Senators should take steps to un-endorse the presumptive Republican nominee. Key findings from the survey include: -
 
Pluralities or majorities of voters in each of the five states say that the Senator's support of Trump makes them less likely to vote for them - including 44% of voters in Arizona, 47% in New Hampshire, 43% in Ohio, 40% in Pennsylvania and 45% in Wisconsin. -
 
Among independent voters 57% say they're less likely to vote for John McCain in Arizona because of his support of Trump, 51% are less likely to vote for Kelly Ayotte in New Hampshire, 36% are less likely to vote for Rob Portman in Ohio, 42% are less likely to vote for Pat Toomey in Pennsylvania, and 46% are less likely to vote for Ron Johnson in Wisconsin. Also in Arizona, fully 61% of Hispanics say they're less likely to vote for John McCain due to his support for Trump. -
