Murkowski Leads in Alaska

A new Dittman Research poll in Alaska shows Sen. Lisa Murkowski leading Joe Miller (R) in the U.S. Senate race, 37% to 27%, with Scott McAdams (D) in third place with 23%. Another 13% chose other candidates or were undecided.

"Replicating the write-in process in a phone survey can be difficult, but the technique used by pollster Dave Dittman is unique to most public polls of the race. Respondents are first asked an open-ended question about their vote preference, and their choice of candidate is recorded. If the respondent is unable to make a choice, he or she is read the names of the candidates on the ballot, with the option of a write-in candidate. In order to choose Murkowski, the respondent must choose the write-in option and provide her name."
