  • Democratic Voter Registration Surges...

    This is an important development for November...

    In the nationwide protests after the killing of George Floyd in police custody, Democratic leaders held out hope that the sweeping calls for racial justice and structural change would have a decidedly conventional side effect: more people would be motivated to vote in the fall. Activists holding voter registration clipboards became commonplace at protests.

    Now, new voter registration data shows that a surge in sign-ups driven by the protests may have indeed rippled across the electorate.

    In the first half of June, a month when, during an election year, voter registration normally suffers from a summer lull, more than 520,000 Democrats registered to vote. That’s a nearly 50 percent increase over the previous month’s total and a rate that outpaced Republicans in nearly every state during those two weeks, according to data compiled by TargetSmart, a Democratic data firm.
    We are not now that strength which in old days
    Moved earth and heaven; that which we are we are; One equal temper of heroic hearts
    Made weak by time and fate but strong in will
    To strive to seek to find and not to yield.

    I'd be laughing my arse off if they are registering to vote for Trump. Wouldn't be surprised with all this rioting and looting going on after George Floyd was murdered.
