On May 13, Public Policy Polling released a poll for several Alaska elections. Question fourteen, for the gubernatorial general election, has these results: Republican incumbent Sean Parnell 37%, Democrat Byron Mallott 27%, independent Bill Walker 17%, Constitution Party candidate J. R. Myers 4%, undecided 15%. If Myers receives at least 3% of the vote in November, the Constitution Party will be a qualified party in Alaska for the first time in its history. It has never before had a candidate for Governor of Alaska.
Alaska currently has four ballot-qualified parties: Republican, Democratic, Alaskan Independence, and Libertarian. They can remain on the ballot if their registration remains at or above 3% of the November 2014 gubernatorial vote, or if they poll 3% for Governor.
