Page 8 Presidential Outlook Oregon-Washington-Alaska By MARTIN HEERWALD United Press International SEATTLE, Wash. (UPI) — It's difficult to imagine a more dramatic climax to a presidential election than to have the outcome decided hy precincts reporting by dogsled. But that possibility—although remote as some of Alaska's polling places — has existed ever since the 49th state was admitted to the union. Alaska first cast its three electoral votes in 19G0 and joined its close Pacific Northwest cousins, Washington and Oregon, in favoring Republican presidential nominee Richard M. Nixon. Supporters of Sen. Barry Goldwater, 19G4 GOP nominee, regard the 18 electorial votes of these three states — especially Washington's 9 and Oregon's 6 — as vital. Washington hasn't backed a Democrat for president since 1948 when former President Harry Truman surprised the nation. Only three Democratic presidential candidates have carried Oregon in its 104 years of j statehood and the last was ] Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1944. Claim Johnson Victory But Democratic leaders in Washington and Oregon insist that President Lyndon B. Johnson will win both states in November. They have more reason than the usual proud political talk to support their claim. Republicans in both states will smart from wounds suffered in the spring and early summer battles between Goldwater supporters and the rest of the Republicans. Other Washington-Oregon observers, including most GOP leaders, believe the Goldwater- Johnson contest is . very close in both states and subject to much change before election day. Goldwater workers are counting on their standard bear- 1 er to parlay the underdog role into victory as did Truman in 194S. Traditionally Democratic A1-. aska, despite its support of Nixon in 19G0, was cool toward Goldwater at the GOP National Convention. And the state's primary election in August showed a resurgence of Democratic strength. Democrats Outnumber GOP In the Oregon presidential primary, Goldwater ran third behind New York Gov. Nelson Rockefeller and Henry Cabot Lodge in a six-way race. -JReg- istered Democrats in the "state outnumber Republicans by 80,000, nearly a 10 per cent edge, Since Goldwater's nomination at least a score of GOP legislative candidates have indicated they will not give the Arizonan their full backing. Gov, Mark Hatfield, keynote speaker at the GOP National Con vention, says he supports Gold water but the governor hasn't been stumping,the state for the nominee. Hatfield isn't up for re-election. Some Oregon Republicans be lieve Hatfield jslands a chance to win the /GOP presidential nomination in 1968 if Goldwater. is soundly defeated. The governor hasn't squashed such speculation. In Washington, Democratic Gov. Albert D. Rosellini apparently believes his chances of winning an unprecedented third consecutive term rest heavv with the success of President Johnson and public opposition to Goldwater. Rosellini barely won re-election in 19G0 when he campaigned largely as a "loner," rarely identifying himself with John F. Kennedy. With at least equal odds against him this year; Rosellini is campaigning as a member of the "Johnson- Jackson-Rosellini" team. The Jackson is Sen. Henry JI. Jackson who proved to be the stale's best vote-getter, running against opposition, in the Sept. 15 primary. Quirks In The News (Reg. U.S. Pat. Off.)
