We'll see, but Sullivan maybe running away with this. His favorables are going up rapidly, while Begich's approval is looking more and more like Obama.

Again, I don't trust Alaska polling much, but it seems like this race is really moving in Sullivan's direction now, and PPP did catch that, so this is worth something.

Also, I found it interesting that PPP polled Murkowski's approval too, even though she's not up for reelection until 2016. They seemed to note that her best path would be to run as an Independent again because her approval is positive overall but underwater with Republicans:

Quote
She continues to be on positive ground with Democrats (50/37) and in negative territory with Republicans (41/46) suggesting she might be best off just going the independent route again in 2016 rather than subjecting herself to another difficult Republican primary.

I like that PPP is including Internet polling, which more firms should try, but this is why I'm a bit skeptical of it: Begich leads 42/18 in the internet sample with 40% (!) not sure.

Cue people starting to deem PPP garbage.

By the way, clever titling there.

Your a broken record.

Anyway, sounds about right. Begich is a great senator but Alaska is still Ruby Red.

How's it clever?

I appreciate the compliment, but I actually wasn't being that creative. If you click the link, PPP actually has the almost same title for their report!

Only clever by saying "close race" instead of "Sullivan maintaining traction" or something. I'm not even mad, it's just a psychological thing I notice a lot of people do.

It really isn't that serious. When you start think things are psychological, you are really going overboard.

As long as we win KS and NC and win AK or CO we should be able to hold senate as long as Orman plays ball.

But I am skeptical about this poll.

PPP is the gold standard here. You're a delusional hack. Stop posting.

Why, because the Democrat is down?

PPP (despite being hired by Democrats) has actually admitted that their polls are more Republican than the real results.

Sullivan seems to have maintained his post-primary lead.
