GUEST,TIA BS: The GOP will steal the election [2012] (256* d) RE: BS: The GOP will steal the election 11 Nov 12


Actually, I think it is reasonable to conclude that it would have been a landslide absent the mostly failed voter suppression by the GOP.

How many people in poor and/or minority districts stood in line for hours, and then had to go to a job, or pick up the kids at school, and ended up not voting?

And it *was* an Obama landslide in the electoral college, and among women, blacks, and hispanics. Also a decisive win among asians. All tempered by a loss among white males (who generally did not have to wait in line and/or use provisional ballots, and who did not get mailers or telephone calls telling them the wrong place or time to vote, and did not have billboards on their streets warning them that attempting to vote could risk jail time) that made the popular vote *seem* close.

This is not the overall squeaker some are trying to portray.
