UPDATE: Two New Polls Have Trump Leading In Arizona By 7-8%, According To New CNN/ORC and Reuters/Ipsos Polls (READ)

(UPDATE, 4:30pm: Reuters/Ipsos has released state-by-state results of its polling over the last 3 weeks - July 29 thru August 19 - and it shows Donald Trump with a 47%-39% lead over Clinton.)

Donald Trump has a 45%-38% lead over Hillary Clinton among likely voters in Arizona, according to a new CNN/ORC poll released this afternoon.  The poll also shows Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) with a sizable 55%-29% lead over Kelli Ward, his nearest opponent, in next week's Republican primary.

That 7-point lead for Trump is when the question is asked of likely voters, and includes Libertarian and Green Party candidates. Significantly, Libertarian Gary Johnson is pulling 12% in that question.

McCain also has a similar lead - 52%-39% for a possible general election matchup against Rep.. Ann Kirkpatrick (D-CD1).

The poll has a margin of error of +/- 3.5%
