It's looking like maybe Sen. Lisa Murkowski might have been on to something when she chose to run as a write-in candidate after losing her Republican primary race in Alaska to lawyer Joe Miller, the Tea Party movement's choice.

A new CNN/Time/Opinion Research poll shows Murkowski, who has launched a write-in campaign for the seat, in a statistical dead heat.

As CNN.com reports:

A CNN/Time/Opinion Research Corporation survey released Wednesday indicates that 38 percent of likely voters in the state support GOP nominee Joe Miller, with 36 percent saying they back Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski, who was narrowly defeated by Miller in last month's GOP primary.

Murkowski is now running as a write-in candidate in the general election.

According to the poll, 22 percent back Sitka Mayor Scott McAdams, the Democratic nominee, with four percent either undecided or not supporting any of the three candidates listed in the survey.
