Alaska GOP Senate candidate Dan Sullivan continues to hold a small but steady lead over Sen. Mark Begich (D-AK), according to two new polls released Thursday.
While polling in Alaska is notoriously difficult, that has been the general margin that most recent polling has found. A CBS/NYT/YouGov poll gave Sullivan a 48 percent to 42 percent advantage this week.
The CNN poll, conducted Oct. 1 to 6, surveyed 704 likely voters. Its margin of error is 3 points. It was CNN’s first survey of the Alaska race. The Fox News poll, conducted Oct. 4 to 7, surveyed 706 likely voters. Its margin of error is 3.5 percentage points.
TPM’s PollTracker average currently has Sullivan at 46.6 percent and Begich at 41.8 percent.
