Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski was recently called out by Trump for being a RINO Republican and suggested she needs to have a primary challenger.
Well, now she has one and her challenger Kelly Tshibaka is already leading her in polls.
By double digits.
This does not look good for Murkowski.
The Federalist reports:
Poll Shows Senator Lisa Murkowski Losing To GOP Primary Challenger By Double Digits
A Cyngal poll published on Monday found that anti-Trump Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, is not faring well on favorability in her home state.
Kelly Tshibaka, the Alaska Republican Commissioner of Administration and Murkowski’s primary challenger, scored highest in a ballot test with 33.6 percent. Murkowski came in third with almost 19 percent, losing second place to the 21 percent of respondents who are “undecided.” Almost 18 percent backed the Democratic challenger Al Gross.
Murkowski’s favorability rate, according to the poll, is 33 percent. Among Republicans alone, that rate sinks to 10 percent. Tshibaka scored a 61 percent approval rating among both Trump supporters and Republicans as a whole.
Murkowski’s decision to convict then-President Donald Trump at the second impeachment trial has not helped her re-election chances. Accordingly, 78 percent of respondents said her decision made them less likely to vote for her.

The only reason Murkowski is losing by double digits is that it's nearly impossible to lose by triple digits.
Murkowski must go! She's not even a RINO! She's a loose screw just like Susan Collins!
Keep an eye on this race! Bye Murkowski!https://t.co/t2H3TaELXL

The right needs Republicans who will fight.
The time for RINOs is over.
