    How many times has a guy at 26% two weeks before election day actually won?

    I'm going to go out on a limb and say never.

    McAdams is going to lose.  Any realistic assessment of the situation would see that.  Tactically you're better off deciding who in the long term is better for Alaska Democrats.  I say Miller, because he will do more damage to the GOP.

    •  If Obama can get 38% of the vote in Alaska, then (0+ / 0-)

      McAdams can easily exceed 40%.

      McAdams is paying more attention to people than the polls.  

      The dynamics are changing daily.

      •  Obama wan't in a 3-way race (0+ / 0-)

        And he didn't have the baggage of two unpopular years of a Democratic administration behind him.

        Look, I hate being Debbie Downer, I really do.  But I just think we need to be realistic.  This pie-in-the-sky idealism helps no one.

        If I had a nickel for every politician who said "I don't pay attention to polls, I pay attention to people," I'd be a rich man.  That's what people always say when the polls have them losing.

        Are polls sometimes wrong?  Sure.  But not often.  Most of the time the results end up being pretty in line with them.

        The man is running third.  He's going to lose.  Period.
