Sarah Palin is going to lose to someone who only got 30% and I believe finished 3rd because of ranked voting. States can and do whatever the fock they want.

So you think the republicans that voted for the other republican selected the dem as their 2nd choice? Why do you think that?

Because the Dem is now leading. 30 vs a split 60 and she may win. Don't even worry worry about Lisa. She's a lock.

it sounds like they dont count 2nd place choices yet, they wait to see who came in 3rd and only then count the others. that's F'd up.

However these figures are about right, alaska voted 62% R, 38% d, that's reasonable.

Democrat Mary Peltola has slightly increased her lead in the special U.S. House race.
The Division of Election released an update Tuesday in the three-way contest to see who will serve the remainder of the late Congressman Don Young’s term. With an additional 22,000 votes counted, Peltola gained over Republican rivals Sarah Palin and Nick Begich.
Peltola is now 7.5 percentage points ahead of Palin. She was 6 points ahead last week.
Peltola has 38.9% of the vote, Palin has 31.4% and Begich has 28.2%.
The ballots included in Tuesday’s update are early, absentee and questioned ballots from districts all over the state.
Thousands of ballots remain uncounted. The Division of Elections expects to provide new updates on Friday but the winner won’t be determined until the end of the month. Ballots postmarked on Election Day have until Aug. 31 to arrive. After the deadline is met, the Division of Elections will determine who finished last. That candidate will be eliminated and his or her ballots will be redistributed according to the voter’s second choice, if there is one.
If the current order holds, Palin could win the seat if enough of Begich’s voters chose her as their second.
This is the first election in Alaska to be decided by ranked choice voting. The winner of the special election will take office in September. The term expires in January.

What's really crazy is votes are still coming in, they have until the end of august to arrive. Why not keep it open for years if you're going to do that?

Here come the layoffs folks. We don’t have much longer. There is going to be a huge crash soon.

Go out and get food, water (especially Vegas) and something to protect it all. Grim times ahead.

Just wait until the government abolishes cash and institutes a digital dollar. Think you’re worried about assets offshore? That will be the least of your (our) problems. But wait, that can’t happen here, right? Bullshit. Ask the Canadian truckers about individual rights and having the govt freeze their assets.
