Below is a summary from local pollster Ivan Moore’s most recent survey question–paid for by gubernatorial candidate Bill Walker– which shows Walker-Mallott up against Parnell-Sullivan by more than 9 percentage points, or by a whopping 13 percentage points, depending on what sample is used. Only about 5 percent are undecided. Others polls have the race much closer, and the undecided voters much greater. Moore has also been outspoken supportive of the formation of the ticket and has held a fundraiser at his house for Walker-Mallott.
Survey fielded Oct 24-26, 600 sample RV, with two likely voter subsamples… the broader 544 sample and the tighter 330 sample that is more representative of voter turnout.
If the November 2014 General election for Governor and Lieutenant Governor was held today and the candidates were (ROTATE NAMES) Bill Walker and Byron Mallott, Unaffiliated, Sean Parnell and Dan Sullivan, Republican, Carolyn Clift and Andrew Lee, Libertarian and JR Myers and Maria Rensel, Alaska Constitution Party… for whom would you vote for Governor and Lieutenant Governor?
544 sample (MOE + 4.2%)
Other candidates 4.7%
330 sample (MOE + 5.4%)
Other candidates 3.4%
Clarification: The original piece said that Moore is most well known for polling for unions, which Moore took exception to. I took it out because he proved his case. He has done lots of work for the NEA, but not so much for other unions.
