    Yes, I know it is hard to understand for some. Iím also saying that a pool is only useful as a predictive tool if the system dynamics stay the same between the data collection and the event you are predicting.

    Voting rights become a flashpoint in Georgia governorís race

    But through a process that Kemp calls voter roll maintenance and his opponents call voter roll purges, Kempís office has cancelled over 1.4 million voter registrations since 2012. Nearly 670,000 registrations were cancelled in 2017 alone.
    According to records obtained from Kempís office through a public records request, Appling-Nunezís application ólike many of the 53,000 registrations on hold with Kempís office ó was flagged because it ran afoul of the stateís ďexact matchĒ verification process.

    Under the policy, information on voter applications must precisely match information on file with the Georgia Department of Driver Services or the Social Security Administration. Election officials can place non-matching applications on hold.

    An application could be held because of an entry error or a dropped hyphen in a last name, for example.

    Appling-Nunez says she never saw any notice from Kempís office indicating a problem with her application.

    An analysis of the records obtained by The Associated Press reveals racial disparity in the process. Georgiaís population is approximately 32 percent black, according to the U.S. Census, but the list of voter registrations on hold with Kempís office is nearly 70 percent black.

    Sadly none of this matters. SCOTUS isn't going to protect voting rights.

    Yep. One of the very reasons Kavanaugh was put on the SC was to make sure that GOP state-level efforts to restrict voting rights couldn't be overturned in the courts. Even if lower courts overturn them, there's little doubt that the Supremes will overturn the lower court's rulings now that they have a 5-4 majority. I expect the NC gerrymandering ruling to be thrown out eventually by the SC.

    A second, post-Kavanaugh confirmation poll is out showing that the Kavanaugh-Ford hearings, and his appointment, has motivated Democrats more than Republicans. A Politico poll shows that 77% of Democrats are very motivated to turn out and vote following the Kavanaugh hearings and appointment, and 68% of Republicans. Independent voters opposed Kavanaugh's appointment by a 47-34% margin. Trump's approval rating fell in the poll to 41% (from the previous 43%), while his disapproval rating rose from 53 to 56 percent. The Dem's lead in the generic poll for the midterm elections rose to 10 points, compared to a 7-point lead over Republicans before the Kavanaugh hearings.

    It's not like they want black people to vote in GA.
