Rasmussen Reports on Monday provided its latest numbers showing the Democratic challenger for Sen. Ted Stevens' seat is polling at 50 percent to 41 percent, and when "leaners" are included, the numbers are 52-44.

One in five Alaskan Republicans (20%) now throw their support behind Begich. The challenger earns 84% support from Democrats in Alaska, while Stevens is backed by 72% of his own party. Among unaffiliated voters, Begich leads by a 2-to-1 margin. The candidates are relatively even among men, but Begich has a 22-point advantage among women.

Begich is viewed favorably by 63% of voters in Alaska, up from 56% last month. Thirty-four percent have an unfavorable view of the Democrat. Stevens is viewed favorably by 50%, which has not changed over the past month. Nearly the same percentage (48%) hold an unfavorable view of the senator.

Any incumbent who polls below 50% is considered potentially vulnerable, and that label certainly applies to Stevens.
