    He's won in the Republican's strong place. Statewide, he's likely to do better than that.

    •  Anchorage isn't the Republicans stronghold here (3+ / 0-)

      That would be the Mat-Su valley, and to a lesser extent, Fairbanks. Juneau is the most strongly Democratic area. Anchorage is pretty 50-50 and is usually a battleground in close statewide elections.

      •  That could be. (0+ / 0-)

        I was responding to emt, who seemed to be saying Anchorage was the Goopers' major conservative center.

        I know that the panhandle is a lot more liberal, and closer to Oregon and Washinton politically than to upper Alaska. If only they had enough of a population base to swing the state, it would be a Democratic stronghold for sure.

        •  I included the Mat-Su valley in Anchorage. (0+ / 0-)

          The point is - the major population center overwhelms the rest of the state.  Juneau and the southeast is more liberal but not numerous enough.

          Admiral Naismith?  Vor?
