Alaska Republican Party

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Alaska Republican Party is the affiliate of the United States Republican Party (GOP) in Alaska, headquartered in Anchorage.[1]

It is the dominant or majority party in Alaska. As of 2015, Republicans hold both of Alaska's seats in the United States Senate, and Alaska's single seat in the United States House of Representatives. They also hold majorities in both houses of the state legislature.

The Alaska Republican Party has also greatly helped GOP presidential candidates in the state and has transformed the Last Frontier into one of the most staunchly Republican states in the nation. For instance, Republican John McCain won Alaska in 2008 with 59.42% of the total statewide vote over Democrat Barack Obama who received 37.89%, a 21.53-percent margin of victory for the senior U.S. Senator from Arizona.[2] All Republican presidential nominees have won Alaska in recent elections; the last (and only) Democrat to carry Alaska was Lyndon B. Johnson in 1964.[3]

  • ✪ What If Republican and Democrat States Were Separate Countries?


The United States has been a united country ever since the end of the Civil War in 1865. As probably most of you know the two dominant parties in Modern-day America are the Republican and Democratic parties. Each party has a varying amount of influence in each of the 50 U.S. states. So what if instead of the current reality of a unified United States there was a reality where instead all of the Republican States formed their own independent country and all of the Democrat States formed their own independent country? First let's define which states are either Republican or Democrat states in the first place. My definition is that if a state voted for the same party in three or all four of the past four presidential elections than it belongs to that party. This definition only leaves three swing states that voted for each party equally in the past four presidential elections, but I'm going to give all three of them to the republican country because they're state legislatures currently as of 2017 are controlled by the Republicans. So, this is what a map of the two countries would look like. The republican country is all connected together, except for Alaska up in the north. While the Democrat country is divided into five separate parts in the east, the North, the west the Southwest, and Hawaii. Both countries would have a very similar population at 154 Million Two Hundred Three thousand for the Republicans and 168 Million Nine Hundred Twenty thousand for the Democrats. The ethnic diversity in both countries would also be quite similar with the Republican Country being 75% White, 15.4% African-American, 2.4% Asian, 1% Native American, 6.2% Other, and 15.2% Hispanic or Latino of any race, while the Democrats would be 75.2% White, 11.2% African American, 7.7% Asian, 1% native American, 4.9% Other, and 18.2% Hispanic or Latino of any race. In terms of Religion the Republican Country would have significantly more Protestants and Mormons, while the Democrat country would have more Catholics, Jews and non-religious people. English would be the primary language in both new countries, and Spanish would be the second-most spoken language both as well but with slightly more people speaking it in the democratic country. The nominal GDP of the Republican country would be 7.726 Trillion U.S. dollars, But the Democrat country would have a much larger economy of 10.732 Trillion dollars. This would however, place both countries behind China who would assume the new position of having the world largest Economy. Owing to its larger economy the Democrat country would have a GDP per Capita of 63,533 dollars, Compared to the republican GDP per Capita of 50,105 dollars, placing the democrats with the 4th highest in the world and the republicans at 12th. Both very high and respectable. Both countries would be capable of fielding large and well-funded militaries as well. The Republican military would have an annual budget of 169.26 billion U.S. dollars, the third highest in the world behind China, and would start out with a size of 1,377,000 soldiers, assuming all the soldiers of each state they were originally from returned home. The democrats Meanwhile would have a larger budget of 239.17 billion us dollars, even larger than China's but would begin with less Soldiers at 1,296,000 troops. Both countries would have a similar unemployment rate as well with 4.4% in the democrat country, and 4.6% in the Republican country. Each country would have its fair share of large cities as well with the top 5 largest in each being Austin, Dallas, San Antonio, Phoenix, and Houston in the case of the Republicans and San Diego, Philadelphia, Chicago, Los Angeles, and New York in the case of the Democrats. I expect that the capital city of the republicans would become Austin since Texas would essentially become the financial and population center of the Country owing to the fact that four out of five of the largest cities are all located there. The capital for the Democrats Meanwhile would be Washington DC The current us capitol that makes the most sense for them since the neighboring states of Maryland and Virginia are also Democrat states. As much as Texas would be the most influential state in the Republican country California would be the most influential in the Democrat one, since it would boast the largest single economy and population If this ever were to become a reality however both countries would be largely Equal. The Democrats would have a larger economy and a higher GDP per capita, but they would both be nuclear-power states, and both have extremely powerful conventional militaries as well. They would be the second and third largest economies and have an almost equal population. Essentially, they would be evenly matched in most regards. It would be best if the United States stayed together of course, But it's still fun to theorize. Please leave your comments below about what you think a world in this scenario would actually look like. What would life be like and would conflict between the two Americas be inevitable or could it be avoided?

John Henry Kinkead was the first Governor of the District of Alaska (1884 to 1885).

The Alaska Republican Party originates from Alaska's first district governor. Once Alaska was granted the status of United States District civilian leadership could be appointed by the current president of the United States. President Chester A. Arthur appointed Alaska's first territorial governor. He was a Republican named John Henry Kinkead.[4]

Alaska Republicans as a party organization can trace their origin to Alaska's first legislature in 1913.[5]
