We confirmed last week that Republican Alaskan Kelly Tshibaka will challenge Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) for her Senate seat after Murkowski was censured by the state’s Republican Party for voting in favor of impeaching former President Donald Trump.
Murkowski’s situation has gotten even worse, as a poll shows she is trailing Tshibaka by double digits.

Tshibaka has a 15-point advantage over Murkowski, according to a Cygnal poll, with 33.6 percent to the senator’s 18.8 percent. A total of 21.1 percent of voters are undecided, with Democrat Al Gross polling at 17.6 percent and Alaska Independence Party John Howe polling at 5.7 percent.
According to the poll, Murkowski’s support has plummeted after she voted to impeach Trump, with just 33% of voters seeing her favorably and 63% seeing her negatively. Just ten percent of Republicans have a favorable opinion of Murkowski, while 87 percent have a negative opinion of her.
Meanwhile, Tshibaka has 61 percent of Trump voters’ approval, 61 percent of Republicans’ approval, and 59 percent of conservatives’ approval.
“As a sitting senator, Lisa Murkowski is in a precarious situation. Murkowski is likely to be defeated by a strong Republican nominee. This poll’s winner is Kelly Tshibaka, according to Brock McCleary, vice president of Cygnal.
Even worse for Murkowski, the poll showed that the majority of voters disapprove of her decades-long senatorial career, especially her vote to enable millions of illegal immigrants to stay in the United States.
Tshibaka said over the weekend that Alaska voters believe Murkowski has betrayed and deserted them.
“She’s been voting with them, causing harm to our way of life, and she’s not standing up to the radical Biden government, which is destroying our oil and gas employment. She voted to allow illegal immigrants to enter the United States. “They will remain here even though they commit crimes,” Tshibaka told Breitbart News. “She was the decisive vote in favor of keeping Obamacare, which means higher health-care premiums and less options for Alaskans. Our health-care costs are among the highest in the country.”
