Ms. Half-Baked-Alaska Defeated!

Ms. Half-Baked-Alaska Defeated!

Despite having running in a deep red state. Despite having Donald Trump’s endorsement, Sarah Palin lost the election for Alaska’s House of Representatives seat which became open when the current Representative died.

True, this is only a temporary term, until January 2023. The election for the January 2023 through January 2025 term is still coming up in November.

Still, this is a big defeat, that does not bode well for MAGA Republicans. Despite Palin’s claims, this defeat was not the result of a Ranked Ballot system being used. In the original votes, of just the voters first choice:

Peltola (Democrat) got 37 % of the votes
Palin (MAGA Republican) got 30 % of the votes
Begich (Moderate Republican) got 26 % of the votes

There was a “Second Count”. With Begich coming in third, his ballots were discounted and his voters second choice was added to the top two remaining candidates, Peltola and Palin. However, while some voters made Palin their second choice, many choose Peltola or made no choice at all. Clearly, a significant percentage of Republicans did not think that Palin was acceptable. Results of the “Second Count” were:

Peltola 51 %
Palin 49 %

Under the traditional system, Palin would have lost by 7 %. However, with the Ranked Ballots system, Palin only lost be 2 %.

Far from dooming Palin, the Ranked Ballots system gives Palin her only chance. She is hardly likely to make up a 7 % difference in the next two months. But a 2 % difference just might be possible.

Clearly, a significant number of Alaskan Republicans find Palin unacceptable. This seat could be made safe for Republicans, if Palin would just withdraw from the race. But I don’t think she will do that. And I don’t think she will do better in November. Not only does she still back the false claim that the election was stolen from Trump in 2020, she now claims that the recent election may have been stolen from her. This will only turn moderate Alaskan Republicans even more against her.

I think this election in November will be Palin’s swan song. And portents big trouble for MAGA Republicans in November. If they can’t win in Alaska then their prospects are poor in most races.

I think that 2022 will prove to be a Mass Extinction Level Event, for both principal Republicans, who actively rejected Trump for his 2020-2021 election overturn schemes, and for MAGA Republicans, who strongly endorse the false Stolen Election narrative. We shall see in two months.

Yes indeed,

More and more of these radical MAGA Republicans will be defeated.

Alaska is solid red and a Democrat hasn't won seat there in over 50 years. Republican voters had enough of moron Palin and her MAGA extremism voting for Mary Peltola instead.

We will see this as well in November as women are angry about MAGA Republicans taking away their right to choose. Seniors won't allow their Social Security and Medicare to be taken away by the radical right.

Another thing we don't hear about in the media is that House Republicans poll numbers are underwater with the majority in the mid 40's.

If you want to see how badly it's going for the GOP, check out this Indiana Senate poll. Only a 3 point difference in a super red state against a basically unknown Democrat.

Indiana Senate:

Todd Young (R-inc) 45%
Thomas McDermott (D) 42%

Even DeSantis and Rubio are not even at 50%. All the Dems need to do is get out their base to have a huge victory.

Florida Senate:
Marco Rubio (R-Inc) 46% (+1)
Val Demings (D) 45%

.
Florida Governor:
DeSantis (R-inc) 48% (+3)
Crist (D) 45%

LOL.  It's amazing how the party of "diversity" turns on any female or minority who runs as a republican candidate.  Vilifying them in the most offensive terms and destroying them at all costs.  Look at how the Dems have vilified Palin and Clarence Thomas.  The black republican in the California run off was called a "white supremiscist" when running againt the rich, white elitist Newsom.  Meanwhile the Dems are run by an all-white group of senior citizens.  Biden, male, white, nearly 80 years old.  Schumer, male, white, 72 years old.  Queen Nancy Pelosi, white, 82 years old. 

The Alaskan "ranked choice" election is designed to keep populist candidates from winning elections.  It was designed by leftist academics and establishment republicans to guide the masses to elect the candidate that these elitists want to be elected.  A tool of the corrupt political establishment that doesn't believe in democracy.  A populist candidate without the support of the establishment cannot gain more than 40-45 percent of the vote.  This is often sufficient to defeat an establishment candidate head to head but is insufficient to do so in a "ranked choice" election.  Understandably, many voters in Alaska apparently didn't even understand the process and didn't even make a second selection.  Similar to "mail in" voting.  The US managed to have legitimate elections for centuries by going to the polls on election day.  Now there is no control over the election which is why there are concerns at the process.  In the 2020 election both Trump and Biden (who hardly campaigned) received more votes than any presidential candidate in history.  A statistical outlier in the election results.  If you want the public to have confidence in the results of an election, have everyone go to the polls on election day.

The radical right continues lo fall in the polls.

Women do not want radical right wing extremists telling them what they can do with their bodies.

Americans do not want right wing religious MAGA extremists shoving their religion down their throats.

While we planned to celebrate our victory in Bethel before going to D.C., our current priority is to be with friends and family to support the ongoing search and rescue. While we’re there, we’ll also be gathering with some community members. Please join us if you can.

Mary Peltola @MaryPeltola

Millions nationwide have either lost their right to choose or have seen it restricted.

We can’t let that continue.

We have to combat these attacks at every level and make sure every person can decide what they do with their own bodies.
