Poll shows race tied with 29 days until Election
Tucson - Today, the Martha McSally for Congress campaign released a recent internal poll showing the race tied in her campaign to unseat Congressional incumbent Ron Barber with 35 days left until Election Day.
The poll, conducted by OnMessage Inc. on September 30th and October 1st, shows Barber receiving 47.5% and McSally receiving 47.3%, with 5% of votes still undecided. 
The poll shows that McSally has closed the 5% gap between her and Barber from the August 7th poll. It also shows a highly increased favorably rating for McSally with 52% having a favorable opinion of her and only 16% having an unfavorable opinion.
Of the voters who have an opinion of both candidates (whether favorable or unfavorable) McSally is leading by a 54% to 44% margin over Barber. This is an extremely positive key leading indicator.
"Although this is just a snapshot in time, the survey shows that Martha's campaign is peaking just before the all-important early vote period starts in the 2nd District," said campaign manager Bruce Harvie. "It is clear that the district is hungry for the leadership and vision Martha McSally would bring to Washington and her agenda focused on real solutions for Southern Arizona resonates with voters. It is also clear that the voters of the 2nd Congressional District are tired of the usual Washington partisan attacks and finger pointing that Barber continues to employ. The voters want a strong independent leader like Martha McSally fighting for them in Washington, and this survey shows exactly that."
OnMessage Inc. is a national Republican polling and media firm, conducting polls for Republican candidates at both the federal and state level. In over 20 years of polling, OMI pollster Wes Anderson has conducted surveys and focus groups in every region of the country.
Martha McSally is the first female fighter pilot to fly in combat, and first to command a fighter squadron in combat in United States history. In 2001-2002, Martha McSally earned national recognition for successfully overturning a military policy requiring all U.S. servicewomen to wear Muslim clothing when off base in Saudi Arabia.
