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.
