    So it seems Trump supporters fear the minority vote and have decided to block them. This has being reported in a number of key states like Georgia and Ohio. Will this purge manage to alter the final outcome of these elections?



    I do not see how being a trump supporter now is equal to trump regime. No matter though - thread titles are often deceiving.

    In any case, how can a politician as Sec of any state run for any office without being accused of conflict of interest regarding voter registration? This is a story not really about Trump or Trump supporters but about conflicts of interest for any incumbent that controls voter registration or elections at any level of government. This is a purity of Caesar's wife problem.

    You mean that voter fraud epidemic that conservatives say is happening, yet all evidence points to the contrary? That one?

    The funny thing to me is he has the audacity to claim voter suppression doesnt exist even when GOP admits and celebrates it https://www.thedailybeast.com/north-...d-theyre-right

    Guys it's not the Trump Regime doing this.

    It's Republicans in general. They have been supressing minority voters long before Trump got into office and will be supressing votes long after Trump gets out of prison.

    Wasn't this a Democrat thing before the "black vote" switched? I'm no expert, my impression is there's been systematic racism against black people participating in US political life since forever. Same probably goes for Hispanic people, is that right?

    I have a vague memory the Irish vote in New York was organised through the infamous Tammany Hall system to overcome systematic official interference (very successfully in the event). Its part of some infamous political corruption in the US, along with some truly awful gerrymandering (both ways as I understand it) and voter fraud (again both ways, as I understand it).

    If the Republican party has inherited the political factions in the South that oppose black people exercising power its only to be expected they would inherited systematic racist interference in black people's rights. Its a US problem, only partly a Republican problem.

    Its definitely not a Trump problem. The guy can't even wipe his own arse without getting paper on his shoe, suggesting he is somehow directing a vast network of neo-Jim-Crow shonkyness beggars belief.

    It's been going on as long as the US has existed.

    Hilarious source, utter rag that.

    "brags about RACIST voter suppression"

    Did you read the garbage your referenced, it's source? Just because they view the decrease as racist, they can't brand that to be the GOP intent/opinion or that they view the decrease as what they celebrate from the cited source ( nor would that be a negative to be happy about, I celebrate anytime actual and rare neo-nazi lose support or more realistic opposition suffer as I'm sure you do )

    Complete nonsense, kinda like the notion of TheDailyBeast doing journalism.
