Ivan Moore Research. 10/17-19. Likely voters. MoE 4.4%. (10/3-6 numbers)

Begich (D) 46 (49)
Stevens (R) 45 (45)

Ugh. That's some critical ground lost for Orange to Blue candidate Mark Begich.

This race has been tight for a while...too tight, especially as Stevens is under indictment. The case of US vs Stevens went to jury today. If Stevens is convicted, Begich will win. If he is acquitted, Stevens is favored strongly, though he could still lose.

Those taking this race for granted should think again; while Begich's favorables are still very high, Stevens has a good chance of winning reelection.

In the House race, however, the news is far better:

Ivan Moore Research. 10/17-19. Likely voters. MoE 4.4%. (10/3-6 numbers)

Berkowitz (D) 51 (51)
Young (R) 43 (42)

Well, with two weeks to go, and no trial pending, no last-ditch chance to save himself, Don Young looks pretty doomed.

Some of the best news: Obama and Biden are closing in in the presidential race:

Ivan Moore Research. 10/17-19. Likely voters. MoE 4.4%. (10/3-6 numbers)

McCain/Palin (R) 53 (55)
Obama/Biden (D) 42 (38)

The "Palin effect" seems to be wearing off even in a state where she could do no wrong for two years.

On the web:
Mark Begich for Senate
Ethan Berkowitz for Congress

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
