A new Cygnal survey research company 2022 Alaska Senate race poll, which could be the first study conducted of the state’s new Top Four jungle primary system, was just released into the public domain. The compiled data comes through an aggregate of 500 registered voters via live interviews, SMS texts, and email responses. The survey was conducted during late March and released on the 29th.
According to Cygnal, Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R) fares poorly. On the ballot test, she barely places second, trailing former State Administration Director Kelly Tshibaka (R) 34-19%, and running just ahead of Dr. Al Gross, the 2020 Democratic US Senate nominee, who places third with 18%. Dr. Gross has not indicated that he will again become a candidate. American Independent Party candidate John Howe attracted 6%, and Democrat Edgar Blatchford notched 3%.
Under the new primary procedure, Ms. Tshibaka, Sen. Murkowski, Dr. Gross, and Mr. Howe would all advance into the general election. Needless to say, the new system drastically changes how the election, and the various campaigns, will be conducted.
