PHOENIX (AP) - A new poll shows support among Arizonans for Sen. John McCain has dropped to its lowest level in 21 years and 67% believe it is time for a new senator.

The Republican has been in Congress since 1983 and a Senator since 1987. He was defeated for president by Barack Obama in 2008 and has since focused on issues like immigration, defense and diplomacy.

The Rocky Mountain Poll from the Phoenix-based Behavioral Research Institute released Tuesday shows just 26% of respondents gave McCain an excellent or good job rating while 36% said he was doing a poor or very poor job.

The telephone poll of 700 heads of households between April 3 and April 23 has a sampling error of plus or minus 3.8%age points.
