Alaskans voted against Sarah Palin and her U.S. Senate candidate
Alaskans proved three important things in the 2010 elections. First, and most important, by a 10,000-vote margin, they voted for incumbent Sen. Lisa Murkowski over Palin's candidate, Joe Miller. Second, they showed how smart and well informed voters are. They didn't just split their ballots, they wrote in Murkowski's name even though her write-in campaign was short and opposed by the National Republican Senatorial Committee. Third, voters don't think much of Palin's judgment when it comes to endorsing candidates. She picked some real losers in Alaska, Nevada and Delaware and probably helped cost the GOP a majority in the U.S. Senate. If Palin's planning to run for president, she's off to a dismal start.
