  • I agree Palin issues were biggest thing here, Burt this makes me feel a pang of hope it mirrors national trends

    • Threw this in the Midterm thread but I’ll put it here as well:

      In an interesting turn of fortune, Peltola wins in Alaska and will take over Don Young’s seat, defeating Nick Begich (and Palin). She is the first Democratic rep since Nicholas Begich, Nick’s grandfather who disappeared in a plane crash and whose open slot started Young’s 49 year stint.

        I have to think this is going to start changing the outlooks from experts (Cook has already moved Alaska in November to "Toss Up") and also energize Democrats everywhere. It'll be interesting to see how the donations go after this, "If we can win in Alaska, we can win anywhere."

        • The Republican campaign against RCV has begun with a wonderful disingenuous argument: “60% of people voted for a Republican yet a Democrat won.”

            Perhaps their platform should suck 50% less? Spitballing

              • Fun fact: Peltola’s win more than doubled the total landmass controlled by House Democrats.

                  • I think the biggest question of the night is what portion of the 20% exhausted ballots did so out of principle versus who didn’t understand RCV. But this exhaust rate seems lower than other elections that use it from what I’ve read.

                        Edit: It's started already! https://twitter.com/SeanBMaguire/sta...DRzbn8v7grAAAA
                        Are they both going to run again? I mean we know Palin will but will Begich? If so do you think this will happen again?

                          I’ll leave the specifics to the experts but I’m guessing “I hate Sarah Palin” is a factor.

                          According to AK Division of Elections only 6% of total ballots had only one candidate ranked. There’s going to be a lot of spin about “confusion” but numbers don’t line up.

                            Yeah the women registering phenomenon is killer for the GOP all over the country right now. While women who normally vote might be split on the abortion issue the new voters are registering for one reason...revenge for taking away their rights!

                            edit: I like Wasserman but he is wrong this is not just cause they hate Palin. People don't register just to prevent someone from winning they register this late cause they care.
