Alaska poll: Sen. Begich popular, Palin unpopular
SeattlePI ^ | 2/8/13 | SeattlePI

Posted on 02/08/2013 12:51:49 PM PST by illiac

Sen. Mark Begich, a Democrat in Republican-leaning Alaska, is sure to be targeted by Republicans in 2014, his seat a “must” pickup if the GOP hopes to retake control of Congress’ upper chamber.

But Begich is showing surprising strength and popularity, according to a new survey of the 49th State by Public Policy Polling. He has a 49 percent job approval rating, with only 39 percent disapproving of the job he’s doing. And Begich leads a bevy of likely Republican challengers.

Sarah Palin Sarah Palin: The Tea Party loves her, but approval ratings have plummeted back in Alaska.

He has a big, big lead — 54-38 percent — over former Gov. and 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin. Palin was recently jettisoned from her pundit’s position by the Fox News Channel. She quit as governor in mid-term to make money.

Sarah is still living rent-free in the skulls of brainless commie libs. When McCain selected her as a running mate, she scared the bejeezus out of the Marxists. They thought for a while there that their race card playing Kenyan was toast. Only the liars in the commie “media” could pull that one out for them.

Seattle pi is online only as their newspaper subscriptions failed miserably. But they are owned by a far worse liberal paper in the Seattle Slimes..you know, the same editorial staff who infamously celebrated Dick Cheney’s resignation years ago by holding a party.

Boy, that's some real objective journalism there. Not to mention some impressive mind-reading and some high-quality writing to boot! /sarc

Because he is "the candidate most likely to stop Project HAARP from screwing-up out TV reception"

Oh man, the reporter is in real trouble. The reporter forgot the part about her being a Devil worshiper - I believe of the Beelzebub chapter.

WHAT!? People hate the obama yes-man begich! He ONLY differs when talking about energy issues because he has to coming from Alaska. He is ok maybe on guns, but I don’t trust the man.

Begich is only popular in certain parts of Anchorage..
Mostly city and state employees..

And Moosecowsky is a known conspirator.. she stands as much chance of being re-elected as fart in a snow storm..

Good chance of a good federal house cleaning coming up..
Moosecowsky spilled the beans.. she was elected by democrats.. and a few RINOs..

Alaskan RINOs by 2016 will probably have their noses full of Barry Half-White..
and KArl Rove’s white stripe down his back is showing..
and that don’t make him Caucasian.. its the Oder..

Gov Palin did NOT quit to make money (such blather, even people on FR fall for that lie).

I did not realize she was running for the senate.

Begich wouldn’t know a HAARP from a Wind-Chime..
He is a corrupt bastard like his father...
Like the Moosecowsky’s.....

Lisa Murkowski's staff is pleased a poll was commissioned so they could give their valuable thoughts on Alaska politics. Friends of Lisa Murkowski PAC is also pleased to report a record high 92% approval rating for former Alaska Gov. Frank Murkowski. (NOTE: The Senator tells us that heads will roll over the 8% of her staff that disapproves of daddy)

If that idiot Joe Miller ends up being nominated again, pretty much no chance of getting rid of Begich.

It is the “Post-Intelligencer”.

I would be embarrassed to have my company name translate into “What Is Left After the Intelligence is Gone”.

Pretty bad when you only hold a 50 percent lead over a someone that is not running for the office.

Gov. Parnell is straight up with Sen. Begich even in this Pee Pee Poll. Parnell is a Palin-type reformer. He will have completed one full term plus the approx. two years of Palin’s unexpired term in 2014. He would be an instantly credible candidate and probably save us a divisive primary for the Senate seat.

His Lt. Gov. is popular enough and would have no problem holding that position.

Alaska is a really good pick-up opportunity for us in 2014. One of many.

Talk about polling your democrat readership... Polling people in Anchorage is like polling people in Seattle or Portland. Nothing but libs. Just goes to show that you can make any poll you want say anything you want.

The pre-emptive strike against anything Sarah Palin might decide to do begins...

Alaska's Republicans have a bad habit of targeting candidates ~ THEIR OWN!

This time they need to target Begich ~
