RINO Senator Murkowski to Benefit from Voting Scheme that Will Boost Her in the Election

In addition to mail-in voting and automatic registration, Alaska is introducing ranked choice voting which enables voters to choose multiple candidates on the ballot and rank them in order of preference. Unless a candidate receives over 50% of the first-choice vote, the candidate with the fewest first-choice votes will be eliminated and voters’ second choices will be reallocated to the remaining candidates. This process of elimination and redistribution continues until a candidate wins a majority – and may be delayed until absentee ballots are counted. Senator Lisa Murkowski’s staff indicated that she supported the new voting system that was created with her reelection in mind. She will helped by Alaska’s new election rules by letting some Democrats choose her as their second choice, boosting the incumbent above the far-right challenger, Kelly Tshibaka, who was endorsed by former President Trump.

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin is the most notable name on Alaska’s ballot to finish the rest of the late Rep. Don Young’s term, though her path to Congress is not guaranteed.

And the outcome of the race may not be known for a couple weeks.

Alaska is using ranked-choice voting for the first time. It enables voters to choose multiple candidates on the ballot and rank them in order of preference. Unless a candidate receives over 50% of the first-choice vote, the candidate with the fewest first-choice votes will be eliminated and voters’ second choices will be reallocated to the remaining candidates.

This process of elimination and redistribution continues until a candidate wins a majority – and may be delayed until absentee ballots are counted. Those ballots can be received until Aug. 26 — 10 days after Election Day.

Palin, Republican businessman Nick Begich and Democrat Mary Peltola are on the special-election ballot for Young’s seat. While Palin, in her first campaign since she was the 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee, was the top vote getter in the June primary for the seat, a Alaska Survey Research poll in July simulated the rounds of ranked-choice voting and found that Palin would be eliminated in the first round of reallocation.

Ivan Moore, a longtime Alaska pollster who conducted the Alaska Survey Research poll, said Peltola is likely to get the most first-choice votes because Begich and Palin are likely splitting the Republican vote.

He said Begich would likely win against Peltola after the reallocation of picks from voters who put Palin as their first choice, but that if Begich is eliminated first and his voters’ choices are split up, those votes would not exclusively go to Palin.

“Even faced with this evidence, Sarah Palin is still [treated] like the favorite to win. She’s not the favorite. She may well win, but she’s not the favorite to win,” Moore said.

Palin has been backed by former President Donald Trump, who held a rally in the state in July and has decried the ranked-choice voting system for helping Senator Lisa Murkowski, who has her own primary on Tuesday.

“She knew she couldn’t win a straight-up election, so she went to this ranked-choice crap,” Trump said of Murkowski.

In a statement as polls were closing in Alaska Tuesday, Palin bashed ranked choice voting, saying, “Today is the first test case of the crazy, convoluted, undesirable ranked-choice voting system, and to everyone who’s watching from Outside tonight, I say: Please, learn from Alaska’s mistake. Voters are confused and angry, and feel disenfranchised by this cockamamie system that makes it impossible to trust that your vote will even be counted the way you intended. We’ll keep fighting to equip Alaskans with the information they need to make sure their voices are heard amidst this Leftist-crafted system – no matter how hard the corrupt political establishment works to silence us.”

Tshibaka 61,225 vote count appears near to Murkowski’s 66,268. Trying to guess how the race will go isn’t scientific. The other two candidates will probably be Patricia Chesbro with 9620 votes is the Democrat, and Buzz Kelley with 3450 votes is a Republican. So if Republicans in Alaska pass up Kelley and vote for Tshibaka, this would be great. But that doesn’t necessarily mean a Murkowski win if some Democrats cross over party lines and vote for Tshibaka. We can only pray.

Real conservatives and Libertarians better have a plan. Because the RINO’S have agreed to work with the Democrats when it is to their advantage.

Dirty tricks by bad actors. The only way to fix this voting system is to completely eliminate computers. And the best way to help clean up a corrupt politburo is to severely restrict the lobbyist’s influence, separation of corporate influence, and state, and lastly, term limits. Then, just maybe, we can begin to clean up nearly all facets of governance that have been corrupted to one degree or another.

The way to fix the voting system is by making it transparent and removing vote by mail for all who are not disabled.
