CNN asks likely voters in Alaska:

If the election for U.S. Senate were held today and the candidates were Scott McAdams, the Democrat and Joe Miller, the Republican, who would you be more likely to vote for or would you write in the name of Lisa Murkowski, who is also running?

The results:

Miller 38%

Murkowski 36%

McAdams 22%

The only other poll of the three-way race, conducted by Rasmussen ten days ago, showed Miller (at 42%) with a much more comfortable lead over Murkowski (27%) and McAdams (25%). In 2008, Alaska proved to be the most difficult Senate race to poll.
