I was just looking through WA's gubernatorial results going back into the 80s and I saw something weird.

How is it that Booth Gardner won Cowlitz county with 62% of the vote in 1984, but lost it narrowly in 1988, while sweeping the state? Even Garfield county voted for him (though I imagine Garfield County was not as Republican as it is now). Now that I'm looking, Wahkiakum County also swung significantly against Gardner.

Also why did Dixy Lee Ray get 60%> in Benton and Franklin counties in 1976?

The Republican candidate was from Cowlitz County in 1988 and represented that area in the state legislature.

Aside from being a conservative Democrat, Ray was a big support of nuclear power. The intro to her Wikipedia page includes quite a bit of information on that subject (link).

Surprised that Oakville voted so heavily against it. Interesting to see how sharp the split is between Langley and Oakville.

A bit surprised not to see Bellingham on the top list too.

You might be confusing Oakville with Oak Harbor.

Yarrow Point in the top ten is interesting.

The combined Democratic vote total in 1996 was 43.5% in the first round. It was 43.4% in 2014.

Not that I think she has a chance this time. Just an interesting observation!

No, but there is a strong case for having a certain percentage of rented housing outside of the open market.

Yes! The question is, how do we pay for this? The most frequent proposal is always additional fees and restrictions on new market rate housing. All this does is penalize & reduce development at the expense of the middle class so a lucky few can get what subsidized housing is built as a result. As usual, the rich get to live wherever they want and are largely unaffected. It is ludicrous and it needs to stop.

In Seattle, there are requirements that certain percentage of housing in new structures be "affordable," or that the developer must pay hefty fees for additional height. There is also a property tax levy that funds affordable housing. I vastly prefer the latter solution. The entire community (not just newcomers) pays in a way that does not reduce the amount of new market rate housing that is built.

It's also one of the whitest states in the country. If whites are swinging hard to the Republicans, it will be reflected even in places like New England.

Andy Hill would be a stronger candidate than Reichert, IMO.

Looks like the State Senate is staying 26-23 as expected. It would appear Ds are currently holding onto the state house 51-48, with a potential Haigh loss resulting in 50-49. I have no idea how late ballots will trend this year but I haven't noticed a potential 50th seat for Republicans.

17-1 (Stonier, D)
R up 525 votes

25-1 (Morrell, D)
R up 1353 votes

26-2 (Seaquist, D)
R up 78 votes

28-2 (Open, D)
R up 69 votes

35-1 (Haigh, D)
D up 223 votes

The Democrat is now leading the 28th by 240 votes, but Haigh is now behind by 157 votes. Looking like 51-48 House.

Does it look like the R + renegade D coalition will hold in the state Senate?

It went from 24+2 to 23,  to 25+1 to 23. So the coalition is still 26-23 but official members of the Republican Party now hold a majority either way.

Hawkins didn't crack 5%.

That means he won't get his own button on Dave's map.

Nothing too surprising in the Washington Poll, although Inslee's favorables are higher than I would have guessed (54-29). 

Interesting to note presidential candidate ratings as well:
Clinton: 55-38
Cristie: 33-40
Rubio: 27-27
Biden: 43-43
Cruz: 25-33
Ryan: 29-34
24  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Richest American Series #1: Bill Gates ($81.6B) on: November 01, 2014, 10:51:37 am
Like all capitalist swine, Gates is a bloodsucking parasite that makes his income off of the toil of other people, many of whom work for next to nothing. In particular, he himself is quite repulsive given that he's decided that it's his right to remake American public education, using this as a foil by which to engage in open class warfare against teachers and their unions. Gates, along with the rest of those vermin that derive their income from OUR labor, deserves nothing less than the chopping block.

ur so cool
25  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Abolish The Pacific: a four-region plan that might be crazy enough to work on: October 26, 2014, 03:22:30 pm
Are you guys really still working on this? lol

Not having a Western-based region is silly. The Midwest/Mideast is obviously the least natural split.

Idk nobody has talked about this in ages but I like the idea.

I agree not having a western region is silly but having a western region featuring Generalissimo Simfan as the entirety of the regional government is arguably even sillier, and those appear to be our only two options right now

Governments and activity levels are always changing. The Midwest has gone through long periods of severe inactivity and one-man governments, too. Yet you propose a permanent solution to a problem that is always ebbing and flowing.

Your proposed Northwest region will have such a tiny population it would be guaranteed to be the least active region.

I understand that I don't follow Atlasia as closely as I used to. While I could see certain anti-Pacific biases are playing a role here, what I see first and foremost is an attempt to gerrymander the South into a left-wing region. Will Atlasia's conservatives really allow that? I doubt it.

Actually, recent developments have left the Pacific as a potential right-wing region. Check out the rolls.

Was I not supposed to expose your latest scheme in public? Sorry - I was just speculating, although I'm not surprised I'm correct. Smiley
