Right Side Broadcasting Network’s new livestream partnership with Rumble means as of July 1, all of the President Donald Trump rallies and speeches will be aired only on RSBN’s Rumble channel, the RSBN mobile app, and its website. Must Read Alaska will also be inside the arena and live-streaming on Facebook, if our news organization is allowed to do so by the Trump organization (to be determined).
“We will no longer have full live coverage on other platforms such as YouTube, Facebook, or Twitter, although we will air limited portions of our Trump rally pre-show coverage on those platforms,” RSBN reported.
“Please be aware that you can only access President Trump’s remarks LIVE on RSBN’s Rumble channel, mobile app, or website. We encourage you all to join us on Rumble to help us defeat Big Tech censorship! For updates and notifications when we are LIVE, add your name to our email list at rsbnetwork.com/newsletter,” said RSBN.
New polling information: Alaska Survey Research latest poll shows Nick Begich winning, ahead of Sarah Palin in the race for Congress, when factoring in the ranked choice voting scenario and other variables.
“Nicholas Begich beats Mary Peltola 57-43 in an RCV final pairing on August 16th, with Sarah Palin eliminated first. The 3-way result is: Peltola 40 Begich 31 Palin 29,” the pollster wrote on Twitter. In a “hypothetical” Sarah Palin-Mary Peltola final two, Peltola wins 50.7-49.3. “Palin’s negative rating? Exactly 60%!”
The poll, for an unknown client, was conducted July 2-5 among 1,201 likely voters in Alaska and the pollster assigned a margin of error of +/-2.9%. Moore polls notoriously skew to the left. The polling analyst firm FiveThirtyEight says that of all the polls Moore does within 21 days of an election, he is right just 44% of the time.
As for the Murkowski-Tshibaka-Blatchford-Chesbro-etc. race for Senate, the pollster says this:
Murkowski 52% (+4)
Fundraisers: Mary Peltola for Congress had a big fundraiser at the house of Mark Begich on Thursday evening.
Nick Begich had a fundraiser at Paradiso’s in Kenai with 40 people. He was on the Duane Bannock Show and the Bob Bird Show, and then visited people at the Soldotna Wednesday concert series in the park.
Jamie Allard, running for Alaska House District 23 was the focus of a big fundraiser in Eagle River on Thursday.
Appearances: Shoshana Gungurstein, running for U.S. Senate as a nonpartisan, appeared on the Must Read Alaska Show, spending some quality time introducing herself to thousands of Alaskans. She said that as a nonpartisan, it’s hard to raise the funds to travel around the state.
