  •  Alaska was the state (2+ / 0-)

    where Pres. Obama most improved in 2012 over 2008.  He lost by 14 points to Romney in 2012, but by 24 points to McCain.  The difference really can't be attributed to Palin -- she was a liability rather than an asset by Nov. '08, and nobody knew that better or earlier than Alaskans.

    I think Begich is really smart and has the best advisors and strategists out there.  Really expect him to squeak past his opponent, whether it's the weak tea faux technocrat, or the carpetbagger.

    As Nate Silver noted, AK's changing demographics turn it into a swing state by 2020.  Maybe a Presidential Candidate will actually make a campaign stop, for the first time since 1964?
