Lisa Murkowski Gets Bad News As Poll Shows She’s Losing To GOP’s Kelly Tshibaka By Double Digits

Last week, we reported that the Republican Alaskan Kelly Tshibaka had announced that she will be challenging Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) for her Senate seat after the politician was censured by the state’s Republican Party for voting in favor of impeaching former President Donald Trump.

Now, things have gotten even worse for Murkowski, as a poll has showed that she is losing to Tshibaka by double digits.

Poll Spells Bad News For Murkowski

A poll conducted by Cygnal found that Tshibaka has a 15 point lead on Murkowski, with 33.6 points compared to the senator’s 18.8 percent. Democrat Al Gross polls at 17.6 percent, and Alaska Independence Party John Howe polls at 5.7 percent, and an additional 21.1 percent of voters are undecided at this time.

Murkowski’s popularity has plummeted since she voted to impeach Trump, according to the poll, with only 33 percent of all voters having a favorable view of her, and 63 percent saying that they have an unfavorable view of her. Just ten percent of Republicans have a favorable view of Murkowski, while 87 percent said that they had an unfavorable view of her.

Meanwhile, 61 percent of Trump voters approve of Tshibaka, 61 percent of Republicans approve of her, and 59 percent of conservatives view her in a positive light.

“Lisa Murkowski is in as weak of a position as an incumbent could possibly find themselves in. A strong Republican candidate is poised to defeat Murkowski. Kelly Tshibaka is that candidate,” Brock McCleary, the vice president of Cygnal, wrote of this poll.

Things Get Worse For Murkowski

Making matters even worse for Murkowski is that the poll found that most voters disapprove of her decades-long senatorial career, and they particularly have an issue with her voting to allow millions of illegal immigrants to remain in this country. Tshibaka explained over the weekend that Alaska voters feel betrayed and abandoned by Murkowski.

“She’s been voting with them, hurting our way of life, and she’s not standing up to the radical Biden administration while they kill our oil and gas jobs. She’s voted to allow illegal immigrants to come into our country. Even if they commit crime, they can stay here,” Tshibaka told Breitbart News

“She was the deciding vote to keep Obamacare, and that means higher health care costs and fewer healthcare choices for us in Alaska,” she added. “We have some of the highest health care costs in the country.”
