  •  hot buton issues (4+ / 0-)

    The Republican party in AK is highly organized.  They have done a great job of breaking down people to single issues.

    Abortion: the state is pro-choice on the whole but the party does a good job of dividing on this issue and motivating some on it and sweeping it under more pressing issues for others.

    GUNS: this is huge.  Lots of people vote R on this issue alone.

    ANWR:  Alaskans love the environment but they hate people telling them what to do about it.  The national Democratic party is seen a bunch of elitist meddlers because of this and other environmental issues that Alaskans would like to consider a local matter.

    and the libertarian thing you said with the usual small government nonsense.  It's all just a bunch of usual trickery by a well-oiled and well funded Republican party.

    Think you have all the answers? prove it

    •  The "libertarian thing" is ironic... (0+ / 0-)

      ...considering that about half the state's population is either a gov't employee or taking some sort of gov't aid!
