Its a bit frightening how much efforts to suppress the black vote in North Carolina (and across the country) may affect this election. That said, Clinton still has a pretty hefty cushion, even if black turnout goes down from 2008/2012 (which every prediction model should have already expected).

Because of course the only way the single most divisive candidate ever could lose is if the other candidate cheated (sarcasm). It's not like half of the country doesn't hate both of them (sarcasm). Or that a large part of the population likes having minimum wage. No definite has to be cheating.

Oh lets not get into the republican governor, that tried to make mail ballots not count, after they had already been sent.

A tectonic shift is taking place. White blue-collar voters, who were once the mainstay of the dems are leaving because the party has abandoned them - - Audible doubts about dems are appearing among blacks. A split is visible between the Bernie wing and the dem establishment that is based on far more than personalities. The anti-establishment revolt in the GOP was successful, the dem revolt, was not. The dem voters may not be the reliable, compliant herd that Hillary is expecting.

Look for Hillary's attacks on Trump to get much uglier. She knows that if she doesn't win then it's certain jail time for her. She's fighting for survival like a wounded animal.

Thinking the same thing as I saw Trump attacks escalating(amazingly, because they were already high).

Honestly, I think it's sad that Hillary was so confident in not being convicted and/or winning that she didn't withdraw from the race in the first place. It just shows how ballsy they are with their shady bullshit.

are touting plans to set up hidden cameras at polling places in Philadelphia and hand out liquor and marijuana in the city’s “ghetto” on Election Day to induce residents to stay home.

That is literally the worst plan I have ever heard of. All you are going to do is get alcoholics and pot heads to stay home and your assuming they would care enough to vote anyways. Any normal person with a brain will be completely unaffected by this.

On the plus side maybe I should buy stock in frito-lay for an upcoming boost in sales.

I don't think it is going to impact her chances of winning, overall, but I'm not surprised to hear it. Her most endearing traits to black voters are that Obama endorses her and that she's not as racist as Trump. I wouldn't feel especially motivated to go vote for her, either.

so does that mean you're in support of the black panthers that were standing outside the voting stations with bats? and the DNC, Obama, they too, were in full support of black panthers at polling places in the inner city, standing there with bats?

that doesnt make any actual voter suppression ok, though.
