[quote]Clinton Is Competitive In Alaska Raleigh, N.C. – Even though Alaska is a very red state, Hillary Clinton is running very competitively against possible Republican candidates for the 2016 election among Alaskan voters. --- With this political stage set up, Clinton still fares relatively well in Alaska. 47% of Alaskans have a favorable opinion of her and when matched up against most Republicans going into the 2016 election, she wins. Clinton beats Sarah Palin (53-37) and Marco Rubio (44-43) and barely falls behind Chris Christie by one point (42-43). Alaskans were very clear about their disapproval with their former Governor, Sarah Palin. 78% of Alaskans believe Sarah Palin should not run for President in 2016 and when asked whether they have a higher opinion of Congress or Sarah Palin, Alaskans choose Congress (50-34). This is especially telling since their approval of Congress is at a meek 8%. “Alaskans are pretty clearly done with Sarah Palin,” said Dean Debnam, President of Public Policy Polling. “They wouldn’t support her for the Senate, they wouldn’t support her for President, and they have an ever lower opinion of her than they do of Congress.” PPP surveyed 1,129 Alaska voters from February 4th to 5th.
