Alaska MAGA Republican Kelly Tshibaka is now in a statistical tie with incumbent Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) after trailing the notorious “Republican In Name Only” (RINO) candidate. Murkowski, who voted to impeach President Trump, has been an unfortunate occupant of the United States Senate for 21 years — compromising on the America First vision her constituents sorely desire.
Recent polling put out by Cygnal could spell bad news for Murkowski — and it takes into account Alaska’s ranked-choice voting system, a system where voters rank candidates by preference on their ballot. As Breitbart reports: “Tshibaka leads Murkowski on the first ballot by 7.9 points and on the second by 9.3 points. On the third ballot, the poll shows Murkowski leading Tshibaka by 0.2 percent, a statistical tie.”
This is the last thing Murkowski wanted to hear. As Five Thirty-Eight notes, the last poll available pitting Murkowski and Tshibaka against each other had Murkowski leading by four points. And now, that lead has evaporated. With the support of Donald Trump and America First Republicans, RINO Senator Murkowski has to be very afraid. She tried to stump the Trump, and it came back to bite her!
