    Skip to 3:50 below for the key bit. Good lord. He’s about as far off-script from the usual Democratic message as you can get. After all the Democrats' concern about voter suppression, this is an interesting response from Obama to Al Sharpton in a new interview pic.twitter.com/9qrJ3riT6a— Chris Megerian (@ChrisMegerian) November 4, 2016 I assume the left will walk this back after the election by claiming that O deliberately underplayed the impact of voter-ID laws and fewer early-voting hours in order to boost morale among minority voters. If he had complained loudly here about “voter suppression,” it might have backfired...

    Depending on whom you believe, analysis of early voting is either a good or bad way to tell who is likely to prevail on Tuesday. There are some cases when it seems pretty clearly predictive, such as in Nevada, where Democrats have built up a big lead thanks to strong support from Hispanic voters. In other cases, it's not immediately clear what the data show.(snip)One thing that we can tell from the Catalist data is the shift in black participation in early voting. In Georgia, North Carolina and Ohio, blacks make up a much smaller percentage of the early vote...

    The U.S. Supreme Court on Saturday reinstated an Arizona law that makes it a felony to collect early ballots, stepping into a contentious political issue days before the presidential election and dealing a blow to Democratic get out the vote efforts. The unsigned order from the nations highest court overturns an appeals court decision from a day earlier that blocked the new law and drew celebration from Democrats. Groups immediately launched renewed effort to help voters deliver their ballots to the polls, then halted them after the high court ruling. The Supreme Court decision called into question what happens to...

    Zero Hedge ^ | 11/2/16 | Tyler Durden
    A few weeks ago we pointed out that Obama enjoyed massive, unprecedented spikes in black voter turnout in both the 2008 and 2012 elections. After hovering around 50-55% for decades, black voter participation soared to over 60% in 2008 and 2012. That said, in the past we've raised serious doubts over whether Hillary should expect the same level of enthusiasm from black voters in this election cycle or whether overall turnout of black voters would revert back to pre-Obama levels. Unprecedented black voter turnout was a huge component of Obama's victories in 2008 and 2012. Per the chart below...

    African-Americans are failing to vote at the robust levels they did four years ago in several states that could help decide the presidential election, creating a vexing problem for Hillary Clinton as she clings to a deteriorating lead over Donald J. Trump with Election Day just a week away. As tens of millions of Americans cast ballots in what will be the largest-ever mobilization of early voters in a presidential election, the numbers have started to point toward a slump that many Democrats feared might materialize without the nations first black president on the ticket.

    With the revelation that the FBI is re-opening its investigation into Hillary’s emails and Trump on the rise because he is keeping his mouth shut, many are wondering if Trump could pull off a major come-from-behind victory. The problem is even if his positive trajectory continues through Election Day, it might already be too late for him. Hillary might have already banked an insurmountable lead prior to the authentic Election Day set by Congress since 1845. According to the New York Times, with eight days until official Election Day, over 22 million people had already voted early. Some estimate that...

In terms of party registration performance, registered Republicans have met their same numbers from four years ago, while registered Democrats are down 11 percent, and registered unaffiliated voters are 30 percent ahead of where they were the same day in 2012.

The 133,000 votes consist of vote-by-mail and absentee ballots. Early voting in Florida began Monday.

The preliminary numbers appear to show Clinton, the Democratic presidential nominee, with an edge in several of the roughly 10 battleground states that will decide the 2016 White House race. We're seeing eye-popping vote-by-mail application numbers, Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook said on Fox News Sunday. In Arizona and North Carolina, for example, more registered Democrats than Republicans have indeed cast early ballots. But such numbers are open to...

There are encouraging signs for Donald Trump in Ohio. That's a vital state for the Republican presidential nominee, but a victory there would be only one of many steps he would need to win. The latest data, representing at least 758,000 ballots cast and millions more requested highlight Trump's difficult path to the White House.

In the seven battleground states below -- where campaigns are especially focused on mobilizing voters -- 330,980 early votes have now been cast. In 2012, about 12 million voters cast ballots before Election Day in these same states. This very first batch of 2016 early votes is therefore only a small sliver of the early vote that is expected to roll...

    In 2016, that domination has been reversed, as Donald Trump is now poised to carry the critical battleground state. Check out the numbers below, and remember, Trump also dominates the share of Independent votes as well, meaning he likely already has a 200,00+ vote lead over Hillary in Florida. If these trends hold, Donald Trump and his millions of supporters will be very pleased come Election Day.

    A Cincinnati appeals court Tuesday dealt a blow to Democrats as it overturned a ruling that would have resurrected the so-called Golden Week, in which Ohioans may simultaneously register and cast a ballot. [ ] Voting 2-1, a panel of the U.S. 6th Circuit Court of Appeals held that the General Assemblys law shortening the early vote calendar does not discriminate against particular blocs of voters. [ ] The state election regulation at issue allows early in-person voting for 29 days before Election Day, he wrote. This is really quite generous. The law is facially neutral; it offers early voting...

    Early Voting Limits Time for Trump Comeback Every election year, as a matter of habit and convenience, we all talk about Election Day as though it is a defined nationwide event. But the reality is far more complex thanks to the advent of widespread no-excuse-required voting prior to Election Day by mail or in person. Indeed, as Patrick Healy of the New York Times reminds us today, nearly a third of the ballots counted in the last presidential general election were cast before Election Day a figure that regularly rises as states follow a trend toward less traditional voting...

    A federal judge on Monday night upheld North Carolinas voter ID law, the Charlotte Observer reported. Judge Thomas Schroeder issued a 485-page ruling posted online Monday evening, dismissing all claims in the challenge to the states 2013 election law overhaul. Schroeder, appointed by George W. Bush, also upheld portions of the law that cut the number of days people could vote early and eliminated same-day registration and voting allowances. "This ruling further affirms that requiring a photo ID in order to vote is not only common-sense, it's constitutional," Gov. Pat McCrory said in a statement. Opponents immediately condemned the decision....

    Arizonas primary on Tuesday is now a yuuge factor in the Republican nominating process. If Donald Trump were to win even a small plurality of votes, he would win all of the states 58 delegates and keep his momentum going. But the results in this important primary might be skewed. Arizona is an early-voting state, and people can cast ballots up to 26 days before the actual primary. As of last Thursday, 249,000 Republicans in Maricopa County alone (where Phoenix is located) had already cast ballots. Thats already more votes than the total cast in Maricopa in the 2012 GOP...
