Arizona Democrats at the top of the ballot have the lead over their Republican rivals, according to two polls released Thursday.

The polls by Monmouth University and OH Predictive Insights show Mark Kelly leading Martha McSally in the race for U.S. Senate and Joe Biden leading Donald Trump in the race for the White House.

The poll from Monmouth University grouped respondents into three categories: registered voters, highly likely to vote, and low likely turnout. In all three categories, Kelly gets at least 50% support. He leads by a range of 6 to 8 points, depending on the group of voters.

The poll from OH Predictive also has Kelly getting support from 50% of respondents.

His biggest lead in the OH Predictive poll is among independent voters. He leads McSally by 34 points in that group.

The polls by Monmouth and OH Predictive both show Joe Biden leading President Donald Trump in the race for the White House.

Biden leads Trump by between 4 and 7 points depending on the poll.

The polls have margins of error between 4% and 4.4%.
