  •  It seems the vote suppression is in Red States. (0+ / 0-)

    I don't want to minimize the principle of it, but those aren't battle ground states.

    It's important down ticket, but, if it's only happening in states that were expected to go for Romney/Ryan, then it's a non-issue for the Presidential race.

    No?

      Perhaps so, but as a precedent, it's a direction that is bad to leave unaddressed.  It may not have that big an impact on the current presidential election, but eventually, Republicans will be in charge of the presidency, and congress again.  It will happen.

      National politics is first tried out in the states and the successful experiments eventually work their way up to becoming national party agendas and goals.

      Best to smack down the dictatorial and authoritarian tendencies while they're still small and local.
