    the state of AK is small enough that most people will know the candidates very well especially Begich who was a longtime mayor of the biggest city Anchorage.  It will not be easy for the GOP to change the positive impression he has left on Alaskans.

    And on very key stat in this poll is Obama's job approval.  Obama is sporting a fairly good (for AK) raitng of 44% to 52%.   Also Obama only lost the state 41% to 55% in November which was the best performance for a Democrat in AK in 44 years (since Humphrey in '68).  Alaskans are not as negative on Obama as would be expected and that will help keep Obama from being a negative drag on Begich.
