PPP's newest Alaska poll finds the Republican primary for Senate becoming increasingly less competitive. Dan Sullivan is now out to a 14 point lead with 40% to 26% for Mead Treadwell, 14% for Joe Miller, and 3% for John Jaramillo.
The race has been moving more and more in Sullivan's direction in our polling over the last nine months. In July Treadwell led Sullivan 33/25. Since then Sullivan's support has moved from that 25% mark last summer to 30% in February and now 40%. Meanwhile Treadwell dropped from 33% in July to 25% in February and is now pretty much holding steady with his 26% mark.
Mark Begich leads all of his potential Republican opponents, but the match ups are pretty close across the board. He's up 42/37 on Sullivan with third party candidates combining for 7%, he's up 41/33 on Treadwell with third party candidates combining for 9%, and he's up 43/27 on Miller with third party candidates combining for 6%.

It seems that Sullivan has been somewhat banged up in the primary and he’s now running ads pointing out his military service. Republicans need to remind voters of Begich missing a vote on unemployment benefits so that he could attend a fundraiser in Hawaii and then lying about it.
"Pay attention to your enemies, for they are the first to discover your mistakes."
What happened to Joe Miller?
This is fairly typical. After the primary he can go about uniting the party. For an incumbent to poll that far below 50% is pretty bad.
He crashed and burned, unfortunately. The race for the nomination is down to Sullivan vs. Treadwell.
I see one Sullivan ad for every 4 Begich ads.
I’m going to be so depressed if Begich weasels back in again.
Begich is a weasel his daddy was a weasel.. and his grandfather was a weasel..
He is not like a weasel he is a weasel.. backed by weasel central..
I know people that knew him as a kid... Eddie Haskel(Leave it to Beaver)... incarnate..
Like John McLaim without the “charm”... and proud of being a traitor..
