Secondly, Show anywhere where I have said anything negative about Miller. So much for your "logic". BTW....what other special powers do you have. /s
The totals as of Nov 2 were:
Precincts Reporting 438 100.0 % Times Counted 213310/494876 43.1 % Total Votes 211147 Carter, Tim NA 751 0.36% Gianoutsos, Ted NA 360 0.17% Haase, Fredrick LIB 1160 0.55% McAdams, Scott T. DEM 49733 23.55% Miller, Joe REP 73309 34.72% Write-in Votes 85834 40.65%After counting a bunch of absentees, the counts are now
Write-In Votes 91,049 40.35% Joe Miller (R) 79,492 35.23% Scott T. McAdams (D) 52,694 23.35% Fredrick Haase (L) 1,238 0.55% Tim Carter (NP) 792 0.35% Ted Gianoutsos (NP) 383 0.17%The earlier assumption was that there wouldn't be much write-ins for Merk among the absentees, since presumably they were sent in before she announced her write-in campaign, that the absentees would be mostly between Miller and the Dem. It looks like there ARE a bunch of absentee write-ins.
Here’s some info on write-ins versus Miller vote from earlier in the day.
So Miller has picked-up 6,183 absentee votes to 5,215 for write-in. So he is behind write-in votes by about 11,000.
Says “netted” vs. “gross.”
I’d presume this means he’s gained 914 relative to others, but who knows. The original post in this thread is more rohrshack than reporting.
Did I miss where they said how many write in votes went to M. If that number was high they would be telling everyone how many more she got....
Did you see the video released over the weekend of a Federal Contractor at a Federal facility in Alaska telling the employees they all needed to vote for Murkowski because she is on the committee that their jobs all depended on?
What about the military absentee ballots? They said they were still coming in this morning.
I didn’t know that. I thought all the valid votes were secured. Is it a significant number or a trickle? The announcemnt that was made, made it sound like all the votes were in. IF that is not the case, then the contest is still winnable

This is effectively just one more commercial. And by then they’d have heard hundreds pro and anti. In the ballot booth the people still vote as they please.
A couple weeks ago there was a similar dustup over some business establishment (Walmrt?) telling its employees to vote republican. I didn’t think that was much of a big deal either for the same reason.
And either way, it’s not something the candidate did.
I think the LT Gov is starting to feel some heat from the public, so I encourage everyone to keep contacting his office and your state legislator if you’re a AK resident. There’s no doubt in my mind he has a bias towards Murkowski and will let his bias influence the outcome unless we the people keep him feeling the pressure.
The result of this race is NOT good for Palin. Its her home state, and she backed Miller to the max.
If she cant persuade her home state.....
She endorsed him, but I wouldn’t say she backed him to the “max”. I would have to say she was noticeably more involved in other races down in the L48.
This video wasn’t a commercial, it was taken by someone present at the time the guy was speaking to the group... what came to my mind was this is why the GOP should have removed Murkowski from the cimmittee when she opted to run against Miller, by not doing so they helped her.
That is the single stupidest thing I have heard today...
Really? Do a search under the name, and you'll find similar nonsense on several threads.
Finally, somebody says it.
As much as I suipport sarah and despise Moocowski I have to admit it is impressive that Moocowski can get so many write in votes. Why is she so popular????
