As the fog of campaign war transitioned into shell shock (unless you believed most of our predictions and analysis) by the sight of several stunning incumbent losses, every politico in the state is straining with furled brow to understand just what messages to take from Tuesday night.
alaska democratic party
; Even the best bloggers and prognosticators get it wrong sometimes and I did last week when I posted the voter registration numbers from before…
Last month both the Alaska Republican Party and Alaska Democratic Party held their presidential caucuses. Both Republicans and Democrats require caucus participants to be registered members of their party. That means large groups of voters who are registered as â€œundeclaredâ€ or â€œnon-partisanâ€ but want to vote for their favorite candidate such as Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, or Bernie Sanders must register with that candidate’s party to vote for them.
Whenever any national election comes to Alaska they tend to be long on explanations as to why Americans should vote for their guy (or gal), but short on reasons why Alaskans actually should. This morning a Bernie supporter named Malena Marvin of Petersberg sent me her take on why Alaskans should support her chosen candidate, Bernie Sanders.
