Very Close in Alaska

Public Policy Polling is out with a new poll in Alaska that finds challenger Dan Sullivan (R) leading Senator Mark Begich (D) in the U.S. Senate race by just one point, 46% to 45%.

The polls have tightened in Alaska it would seem. Sullivan had a large lead then Begich had a large lead. Alaska is the hardest state to poll and often polls are completely off.

The Alaska Senate race is even tighter than the one in Colorado, with Dan Sullivan leading Mark Begich just 46/45 with the full field and 47/46 in a head to head contest. Begich leads 50/36 with independents and has 91% of the Democratic vote behind him to just 81% of Republicans who are for Sullivan. The picture in this race is pretty steady- Sullivan led by 2 points on our last poll in September. Begich has a very strong ground game and it could be enough to put him over the top.
