BLUE SKIES AHEAD:

MIDNIGHT SUN EXCLUSIVE: New Poll Shows Trump-Clinton Tied In Alaska (CASEY REYNOLDS, OCTOBER 16, 2016, Midnight Sun)

The poll was conducted by Washington D.C. based Lake Research Group from October 11-13 and surveyed 500 likely general election voters. According to their website Lake Research Group has done work for former President Bill Clinton, Vice-President Joe Biden, and dozens of congressional and senate Democrats including former Alaska Senator Mark Begich.

The results show Donald Trump with a one point lead. That is well within the 4.4% margin of error. [...]

These two survey results show while Donald Trump's support among likely voters has only dipped by one point, Hillary Clinton has picked up six points. That surge by Clinton appears to have come by peeling off slivers of support from Trump, Libertarian Gary Johnson, and Green Party candidate Jill Stein.

This is just the latest poll to show the presidential race tightening in Alaska. Last week the Alaska Dispatch News released a poll showing Trump ahead by only 5.5 points and Sen. Lisa Murkowski's campaign released their own internal polling showing Trump up an even slimmer 3 points.
