SULLIVAN NOT SEEN AS VULNERABLE IN 2020
Sen. Lisa Murkowski, who has been in the U.S. Senate since 2002 is still popular among Alaska voters, according to the quarterly poll from Morning Consult.
In the latest poll, 43 percent of Alaskans have a positive view of Murkowski, 36 percent have a negative view, and 21 percent have no opinion. Murkowski has a net positive of 7 percent with voters. She ranks 64th among all 100 U.S. senators in terms of popularity.
Alaska Sen. Dan Sullivan is not quite as popular as Murkowski, according to the poll, with a 38 percent positive, 32 percent negative and 30 percent having no opinion. Sullivan has a net positive of 6 percent with voters. He ranks 87th among all 100 senators.
Sullivan was elected to his first term in 2014 and comes up for election in 2020, while Murkowski has until 2022 before she stands for reelection — if she does. Many political observers believe she will not run again for Senate.
The company also posted results for governors, which shows Gov. Michael Dunleavy with a net 12 percent positive rating.
