Seems she leads the pack in the first poll up there since she declared she would run the House seat vacated by the death of GOP Rep. Don Young….
Democrat Al Gross trails the former Alaska Republican Governor and could gain if some the numerous contenders drop out….
Trump has endorsed Palin , something 48% of those polled said could cancel their support for her….
A poll commissioned by Must Read Alaska over the weekend shows that Sarah Palin has both a chance of winning the race for Congress, but also has a high negative factor and could hand the race to the leading candidate supported by Alaska Democrats — Al Gross.
With campaigns eager to make claims to voters during this hurry-up special election season, Must Read Alaska has invested in ground-truthing what Alaskans are really thinking about concerning those on the ballot. The results were surprising:
The survey asked questions of 955 likely 2022 primary voters, such as: “Of several possible candidates in the 2022 election for Congress, if the election were held today, for whom would you vote?” The response was:
- Sarah Palin: 31%
- Al Gross: 26%
- Nick Begich: 21%
- Christopher Constant: 7%
- Josh Revak: 3%
- Tara Sweeney: 2%
- Another candidate not listed: 4%
- Undecided: 6%
This result contradicts a poll advertised by candidate Gross in his fundraising push to his national audience, which says Palin has 42%, Gross has 40%, and 18% are undecided.
