Good to see Stevens and Young struggling. Their other challenge is to keep from getting indicted before the election.

Paul:

This R2000 poll is good news for McCain as the +10 is better than the last four polls. Alaska is seen as likely GOP on everyone's electoral map.

On the Senate side, the poll showing the Democrat ahead is consistent with the 538 projection that this race tilts DEM. This is one of five Senate races identified where a DEM could win a GOP seat, although this contest is by far the most difficult for a DEM to break through.

I was hoping Obama would be close, but otherwise this is good news. Perhaps Obama will still travel to the state and help the downticket races.

I do not think Obama would help the downticket races in a state that is very very Republican. These Democrats would not have a chance if the GOP incumbents were not so corrupt.

"I do not think Obama would help the downticket races in a state that is very very Republican."

I don't think they are Republican as much as Libertarian. And since they normally don't get any on the ground campaigning from national figures, this could help invigorate Democrats in the state, and maybe turn a few independents.

It would be nice to sweep the Pacific states.

Undecided:

Not so much Libertarian when one considers that Alaskans get state government pay outs from oil revenues. Obama's anti-drilling stance is also not popular. GOP Governor Palin is extraordinarily well-liked. Alaskans vote overwhelmingly for Republicans (although most are registered nonpartisan/undeclared). The non-support of Stevens and Young has everything to do with their greed.
