Of course it had nothing to do with Obama not running compared to the last two elections.

From the article:

"There's probably another reason: The decline in early voting among black voters is likely a result of yearslong efforts by North Carolina's Republican officials and political operatives to impose voting restrictions in the state. Emails obtained last week by Reuters showed that Republican officials pushed successfully to restrict early voting sites and cut down on early voting on Sundays, when many black churches hold "Souls to the Polls" mass voting drives. During a major voting rights lawsuit decided in July, the 4th Circuit Courts of Appeals noted that the state eliminated Sunday voting specifically because the voters who used it were "disproportionately" black and Democratic."

Scumbags.

They were able to vote. They just didn't.

Even black people hate communist pigs.

"After drawing national attention for African-American early voting turnout that was falling below 2012's record pace, North Carolina saw a surge in black voters during the final days of the 2016 early voting period, which ended Saturday.

"A Facing South/Institute for Southern Studies analysis finds that in the last two days of early voting alone, 122,800 African-American voters cast ballots in North Carolina, which has emerged as one of the most closely watched battlegrounds of 2016.

"As of mid-Sunday, the latest figures released by the N.C. State Board of Elections show African-American early voting turnout in 2016 was still 67,000 votes shy of levels reached in 2012, when President Obama ran for a second term. Black voters represent 22.3 percent of early voters this year, compared to 27.4 percent four years ago. African Americans are 22.2 percent of North Carolina's registered voters."

Tell me what part of that indicates "suppression" by the GOP?

You people are just sad. And stupid.

A rare instance where Reps out maneuvered Dems in political gamesmanship. It's too bad these things occur, but the Dems are the champions at this type of behavior. Of course the MSM loathes to report the Dems acts of attempted voter suppression. Hey, has anybody heard if they fixed those voter machines in Pennsylvania?

Election judges in Clinton Township, in Butler County, Pennsylvania, confirmed there were issues with two of their eight automated voting machines. Most of the issues came when people tried to vote straight-party ticket, CBS Pittsburgh reports.

However, other said they specifically wanted to vote for Republican Donald Trump only to see their vote switched before their eyes to Democrat Hillary Clinton.

“I went back, pressed Trump again. Three times I did this, so then I called one of the women that were working the polls over. And she said you must be doing it wrong. She did it three times and it defaulted to Hillary every time,” Bobbie Lee Hawranko told CBS Pittsburgh.

This is the only type of black voter suppression I'm aware of.

N.C. GOP said no such thing. The GOP press release even explained that the lack of interest among African-Americans resulted in less early voting. Ma Jones offered no reason when they claimed that the GOP engaged in voter intimidation. It's easy to see that it's another waaaah, waaaah lie by the incoherent left and they still can't understand why they lost.

Bingo.

Ben Carson (hey, isn't he ...BLACK? See how long before some mentally ill lefty calls him a ****** or an uncle tom) put it best:

"One of the best parts of Donald Trump’s election victory is watching all the nutty left-wing liberals absolutely lose their minds over their huge and historic loss, as it finally dawns on them Americans reject both big government and the criminal cronyism represented by Hillary Clinton."
