According to a newly commissioned poll by Republican candidate for U.S. Senate former Alaska Department of Administration commissioner Kelly Tshibaka, she is leading current incumbent Lisa Murkowski by double digits.
The poll, conducted by Cygnal, found that Murkowski’s polling has plummeted since she voted with radical Democrats to convict President Donald Trump during the second sham impeachment charade by the socialists in the Democrat Party.
Tshibaka “leads Murkowski by roughly 15 points, or 33.6 points, to Murkowski’s 18.8 percent. Democrat Al Gross polls at 17.6 percent, and Alaska Independence Party John Howe polls at 5.7 percent, with 21.1 percent of voters remaining undecided,” writes Breitbart.
Among all voters, only 33 percent have a favorable image of the Alaska Republican, and 63 percent have an unfavorable view of Murkowski. Among Republicans, only ten percent have a positive image of Murkowski, and 87 percent have an unfavorable view of her.
In stark contrast, “61 percent of Trump voters approve Tshibaka, 61 percent of Republicans approve of her, and 59 percent of conservatives view the Republican challenger in a positive light,” according to Breitbart’s report.
“Lisa Murkowski is in as weak of a position as an incumbent could possibly find themselves in. A strong Republican candidate is poised to defeat Murkowski. Kelly Tshibaka is that candidate,” Brock McCleary, the vice president of Cygnal, wrote in a memo regarding the poll.
The survey also found that voters largely disapprove of her decades-long career in the Senate and her vote to allow millions of illegal immigrants to stay in the country. Republicans especially dislike Murkowski for her vote to convict Trump in the impeachment trial, her vote against Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court, and her rank as the second most liberal Senate Republican.
Murkowski also voted against the repeal of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) during the early years of Trump’s presidency.
Murkowski is up for re-election in 2022 and with the indicators in this poll, it is not a pretty sight for the incumbent’s fate, as her state seems to have an extremely negative view of her.
