Alaska Gubernatorial Poll Suggests Constitution Party May Win Qualified Status for First Time

On May 13, Public Policy Polling released a poll for several Alaska elections. Question fourteen, for the gubernatorial general election, has these results: Republican incumbent Sean Parnell 37%, Democrat Byron Mallott 27%, independent Bill Walker 17%, Constitution Party candidate J. R. Myers 4%, undecided 15%. If Myers receives at least 3% of the vote in November, the Constitution Party will be a qualified party in Alaska for the first time in its history. It has never before had a candidate for Governor of Alaska.

Alaska currently has four ballot-qualified parties: Republican, Democratic, Alaskan Independence, and Libertarian. They can remain on the ballot if their registration remains at or above 3% of the November 2014 gubernatorial vote, or if they poll 3% for Governor.

    So he got enough signatures to get on the Alaska ballot?

    I think this is the same person who caused one of the state’s Reform Party to fold when he was chairman. Maybe he just loves to see his name in print.

    Here’s another question, will he be running as a CP’er, or a independent on the ballot?

    I don’t think the Alaska CP would qualify if he was running as a independent and got that threshold.

    J. R. Myers is still petitioning. The deadline is August 19. His ballot label will be “Constitution.”

  5. Cody Quirk

    So he’s doing the ‘full party’ option?

  6. Except for president, Alaska doesn’t have a “party petition.” It just has candidate petitions, and lets the candidate choose the ballot label.

    Although it’s early, it’s better than being at 1%. It will motivate him and anyone helping him to keep getting signatures.
