If this one pollster is right, then [Edit: 2017] is going to be a very good year for a certain kind of Republican. Just look at this Arizona result!

JMC Analytics is now putting out a series of Senate primary polls. Each one has turned out in the same direction: Roy Moore ahead of Luther Strange, Danny Tarkanian ahead of Dean Heller, but both of those leads are nothing compared with the latest poll.
Get this: JMC has Kelli Ward ahead of Jeff Flake by 26 points, Ward 47, Flake 21, and Nicholas Tutora 3.
I speculated on Twitter today that JMC is either terribly biased, or the pre-Trump establishment is getting swamped this year. I got a one-word reply that says a lot: “Robopollster.” So we’ll see how valid their polls end up being!
