Where is the Polling in Alaska?

The Upshot currently has the race for control of the U.S. Senate listed as a toss up -- giving Republican a 54% chance of taking over the chamber.

Sam Wang's latest forecast also suggests a toss up -- but with Democrats having the slimmest of edges.

But Wang also issues an important caveat: "The biggest problem with the polling snapshot right now is a near absence of information about the Alaska race. Senator Begich (D) is locked in a close race with the probable (but not definite) nominee, Dan Sullivan (R). In other close states, there's at least a little June data. The last published Alaska poll that went into today's snapshot was completed on May 11th."
