  •  It also could totally backfire on the GOP (4+ / 0-)

    If the polls get clogged on election day, fewer people will be able to get inside the booth to cast their ballots.  

    The high AA turnout during early voting that has already taken place would then become extra important - especially if Obama has done disproprtionally well during early voting.

    This lead is early voting with high AA turnout would become even more important if AA voters refuse to get off the long lines on election day while other more traditional voters walk away. I could see a scenario where the GOP totally screws itself with these tactics since so many D's have already gotten to the polls in Georgia.

    •  As a Georgia voter... (4+ / 0-)

      Suburban polling locations, like mine in Cherokee County, rarely experience the long lines and irregularities of the urban polling locations.  So, if turnout is as heavy as predicted, I believe it will negatively impact the experience of urban voters (African Americans and Democrats) in the "blue counties" as opposed to the suburban/rural voters (rednecks and Republicans) in the "red counties".
