    It's very sad and telling that the DNC and Dem SuperPacs aren't already spending millions in ads and ground work to say the GOP is trying to keep tens of millions from legally voting. You can't have much more blatant racism than what Trump and the GOP are doing.

    But the Dems are too weak. If they weren't, they'd be able to create the largest black and Hispanic turnout in US in raw numbers and percentage of eligible voters.

    This is so easy, but the Dems are to nice and weak.

Literally cancelling an election to appoint a right-wing Republican to fill the post? Good luck spinning that one, guys.

    After Romney's defeat in 2012 - in which he got nearly the same percentage of the white vote as Reagan got in 1980 but still lost to Obama - the RNC did a detailed study of what Republicans needed to do to stay competitive with Democrats going forward. Their conclusion was that the GOP badly needed to diversify its voting base, which was 90% white (and even higher in some states), as the percentage of whites was steadily declining as the nation's demographics became ever more diverse.

    Instead of heeding their own advice, the GOP completely rejected that plan and under Trump just doubled-down on getting out the white vote and maximizing whatever advantages they could from extreme gerrymandering and an Electoral College that gave an advantage to rural states over urban ones. That (barely) proved to be enough to win the EC in 2016. But the Republicans still see the handwriting on the wall, and so they've been busily packing the federal courts with lifetime appointments of right-wingers, vigorous efforts at extreme gerrymandering, purges of voter rolls and ways to restrict voting (especially by minorities), and new schemes like this one. It's all designed to either delay the day of demographic destiny for as long as possible, or if it finally happens, ensure that the federal judiciary will continue to support right-wing policies for several more decades, and block most progressive legislation or actions of any future liberal Congresses or Presidents. It really is that simple, although they'll rarely openly admit to it (except for somebody like Trump saying the quiet parts out loud occasionally.)

    Why is the RNC wasting money in a state they can't win and the law in CA allows it?

    Practice. They can see what arguments stick.
    Let’s get this done!

    They also want to win back a number of congressional seats. And they have lots of $$.

    Trump press secretary Kayleigh McEnany has voted by mail 11 times in 10 years

    Meanwhile, McEnany, a graduate of South Tampa’s Academy of the Holy Names and a Davis Islands homeowner, has voted by mail 11 times over the last 10 years.

    In a statement emailed after the story published, McEnany said: “Absentee voting has the word absent in it for a reason. It means you’re absent from the jurisdiction or unable to vote in person. President Trump is against the Democrat plan to politicize the coronavirus and expand mass mail-in voting without a reason, which has a high propensity for voter fraud. This is a simple distinction that the media fails to grasp.”

    However, Florida does not have absentee voting. Anyone can vote by mail here without a reason. The Times asked McEnany if Florida should change its law to restrict voting by mail to those unable to vote in person. The story will be updated if she responds.

    Pretty sure in DC you have 30 days to change your residency. Not sure if she lives in the District or not.

    WV mailman changed vote by mail requests from Democrat to Republican.


    https://www.justice.gov/usao-ndwv/pr...election-fraud




    "The investigation found five ballot requests that had been altered from “Democrat” to “Republican.” On three other requests, the party wasn’t changed, but the request had been altered."

    Bold move using a voting model who favors young healthy people and hurts the elderly.

    The problem is the Supreme Court won't see the FL law as the poll tax it is.
