The fact that Alaska did not make it to the top 10 is no surprise to me. When I lived there I knew a lot of conservatives but the number of union thugs and libtard loonie tunes is staggering and the indian and eskimo populations could not exist without generous government “assistance”.

When my wife and I left, AK lost 2 solid conservatives and Idaho gained two.

Alaska's legislature has a Repub majority in both houses, dems lost even more seats in last election, and we have Repub Governor. Everybody says Begich is completely unelectable in 2014, only way he got in in first place was with the Feds law suits against Uncle Teddy that were proven wrong in the end.

The oil industry is unionized on the slope, the oil wealth creates funding to provide a huge social support net, but it also allows Alaska not to have state sales, income, or in many places property taxes; double edged sword.

Been here 20 years and I see it becoming more conservative politically. The fact that conservatives here don't trust the Republicans either, doesn't make the state a liberal stronghold. Alaska has elected a couple third party Governors since statehood in late 50's.

I’ve lived in Alaska and have noticed how the state is leaning towards the left. The native population is in perpetual victimization mode and the white libs are all to happy to keep them thinking that way.
