Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin might have a tougher time than once thought if she were to take on Sen. Lisa Murkowski in a Republican primary next year.

A Dittman Research poll shows Murkowski leading this year’s GOP vice presidential nominee in the hypothetical matchup, 57-33, according to KTUU-TV in Anchorage.

Anybody who believes this has rocks in their head!

Probably another skewed poll from a polling organization with a Democrat agenda.

Two polls taken only a couple of weeks apart with opposite results.

Not this BS again:

A "new" poll, because the previous poll had it exactly reverse:

Palin Crushes Murkowski 55 to 31 in Alaska Senate Poll

But irrelevant anyway. Palin will not run for Murkowskis seat in 2010:

Senator Murkowski and Gov. Palin: We're not rivals; we're in partnership for Alaska

She just had a presser with Lisa saying she’s not running against her!!!

Of course the poll would relect this!

(&^%, these media people are either stupid or corrupt.

Exactly, whoever the idiot who made this “poll” switched it around, either way, I don’t want Sarah going anywhere near the United States corrupted Senate.

It’s Anchorage talk show gadfly Dan Fagan who is stirring the pot. He’s the one who payed Dittman to conduct the poll.

Oh, yes, and one of Allah’s readers at Hot Air found that Dittman has a record of donating to Murkowski campaigns:

For such a big state Alaska can be a small world...

Rather than looking at this poll as anti-Palin, perhaps the good people of Alaska just want to keep Gov. Palin running their state because she can make a larger impact, instead of being part of a weak minority in the Senate.

On ktuu.com. Must be a dimwad paper.

Most say Johnston was right to quit job
In a poll conducted by Channel 2 News, respondents were asked if Levi Johnston did the right thing by quitting his job on the North Slope.

Yes 56 %
No 44 %

Did the right thing? LOL
They just can’t leave them alone.

From HotAir:

“In any case, I need an excuse to update the poll post from this morning and this’ll do. An eagle-eyed reader checked Newsmeat, which I should have done, and found out that the polling firm involved has a history of donating to — ta da — Frank and Lisa Murkowski. So if you’re wondering how reliable the data is, weigh that accordingly.”

No one is running yet. This has just gotten nuts. Can we get through one day without a ridiculous poll?

Shoot, Sarah needs to stay as Governor. The Senate is USUALLY not the path to the White House.

Yep, just like those polls that had Obama beating McCain. Freepers kept telling me that they "couldn't be true."

Sarah Palin may very well end up the new Katherine Harris.

#1 Total Horse Crap “Poll”
#2 There isn’t a chance Palin would run against Murkowski instead of, say, Democrat Mark Begich
#3 Media types are still trying to discredit and attack Palin because they know she would monkey stomp any Rat

Sarah is too good for the goofy Senate.

I think she will stay as Governor, and she will be my President on 1/20/13.

Sarah should avoid a corrupt institution like the United States Senate at all costs...

Yeah, we've heard that nonsense before as well

Go stoke the fires of controversy elsewhere.

Just a clever ploy from the public to make sure that Gov. Palin remains their governor until it’s time for her to run for president.
