Miller Plummets in Alaska

A new Hays Research poll in Alaska shows Scott McAdams (D) surging ahead of Joe Miller (R) in the U.S. Senate race, 29% to 23%, allowing the unnamed write-in candidate -- most of which are presumably for Sen. Lisa Murkowski -- to lead the contest with 34%, with undecided voters still at 13%.

"With a 68% disapproval rating, and Miller's trend line looking like the flight of the Hindenberg even before the latest scandal hit the news, the chances of him actually pulling it off and winning this election are slim."

Meanwhile, the Anchorage Daily News reports Murkowski got a big win when the Alaska Supreme Court ruled yesterday that voters can look at a list of certified write-in candidates when they go to the polls.
