Poll finds Flake behind in ratings by Ariz. voters

Updated:
Jeff Flake Jeff Flake

PHOENIX (AP) - Newly elected Arizona Republican Jeff Flake is starting his 6-year term in the U.S. Senate with what appears to be an uphill climb in public opinion.

The Phoenix-based Behavior Research Center says a statewide survey of registered voters found 18% of those surveyed rated his performance favorably and 26% unfavorably.

Other voters either rated Flake's performance as "fair" or didn't have an opinion.

The center says Republicans tended to rate Flake favorably while independents and Democrats generally rated Flake unfavorably.

The survey was based on telephone interviews conducted in early April. That was before Flake voted against a high-profile bill to expand background checks for gun buyers.

The poll's overall margin of error was plus or minus 5%age points.

    It appears the subway bedbug problem we've been reporting is getting worse. Commuters already have to contend with sweltering platforms, scurrying rats and packed train cars, and now there's another transit woe: fear of bedbugs.
