Miller Barely Leads Murkowski in Alaska

A new CNN/Time/Opinion Research poll in Alaska shows Joe Miller (R) leading Sen. Lisa Murkowski (I) in the U.S. Senate race among likely voters, 38% to 36%, with Scott McAdams (D) trailing at 22%.

Said pollster Keating Holland: "It looks like Alaska Democrats may be planning to do some strategic voting. Nearly four in ten Democratic likely voters say they plan to write in Murkowski's name. That's an indication that a lot of Democrats are more interested in defeating Miller than they are in electing a member of their own party."

Murkowski is running as an independent write-in candidate, though she says she'll still caucus with the Republicans if re-elected.
