Lindbeck Releases Bad Polling Numbers For Young

;

According to congressional candidate Steve Lindbeck, internal polling commissioned by his campaign and the Alaska Democratic Party shows his opponent, Rep. Don Young is viewed as “unfavorable” by 48% of Alaskans, compared to a 39% favorable rating. The poll also shows that 61% of Alaskans say Young is doing either a “poor” or “just fair” job. Only 35% say he is doing a “good” or “excellent” job.

Those results aren’t just bad for Young, they would appear to place the incumbent congressman on the verge of “unelectable” status.  

Since the numbers are internals for Lindbeck and Alaska Democrats, they should be taken with a grain of salt.

It’s worth noting, however, these numbers are in line with other polling numbers released publicly, and neither Young, nor the Alaska Republican Party have released any numbers of their own to contradict them.

Here is Lindbeck’s full release:

NEW POLL: DON YOUNG’S NUMBERS SINK —

ALASKA CONGRESSMAN VULNERABLE AGAINST LINDBECK IN RE-ELECTION FIGHT

 

48% of Alaska voters have unfavorable opinion of Young, 61% say he is doing a “poor” or “just fair” job as Congressman

ANCHORAGE  WEDNESDAY, JULY 6 — An internal poll commissioned last week by the Lindbeck campaign and the Alaska Democratic Party found that 48% of Alaska voters hold an unfavorable opinion of Congressman Don Young — while just 39% have a favorable opinion of the Republican incumbent. 61% of voters said that Young is doing a “poor” or “just fair” job as Congressman.

Among the key swing group of independent voters, just 37% view Young favorably, while 50% view him unfavorably. Thirty-four percent of independents say he is doing a “poor” job as Congressman, while 32% say his performance is “just fair.”

As Steve Lindbeck, former General Manager of Alaska Public Media, gears up to challenge Young, the numbers show that the 43-year congressman is uniquely vulnerable in November.

Lindbeck Campaign Manager Evan Brown released the following statement:

“This poll reflects what is increasingly clear — after 43 years, Alaskans are saying it’s time to move on from Don Young. As Alaska’s economy faces unprecedented challenges, it’s clear Alaska voters are looking for a new direction and a congressman who always puts Alaska first.  Steve Lindbeck is a proven leader with a long record of getting things done for Alaska.  He’s running an aggressive campaign built on a vision for an Alaskan economy that is diversified and strong, and he’s getting a great response across the state.”

The poll was conducted from June 29 – June 30, and sampled 1,190 Alaska voters. The MoE is +/- 2.8%.
