Patinkin Research Strategies: Walker-Mallott in 2nd place in Governor’s race; Begich-Call trail in third
Multiple Polls, Different Pollsters Show Walker-Mallott Set Up for Success Against Likely Opponent
New poll shows Walker in strong second place in the Governor’s race—Begich trailing
Recent polling shows Governor Walker and Lt. Governor Mallott continue to hold second place. With 28% of the vote, the bipartisan gubernatorial team is ahead of recent entries Mark Begich and Debra Call (22%). And while the Dunleavy / Meyer team continues to hold a single-digit lead, their support has dropped (-3) since we were last in the field in March.
The Walker-Mallott campaign today released in-depth analysis of multiple polls taken over the last two months showing strong and growing support for the unity ticket over candidate Mike Dunleavy. Dunleavy is a State Senator from the Mat-Su who resigned his position at the begining of the 2018 legislative session in order to campaign. The research memo is attached and available on the campaign website [LINK].
