    HARRISBURG (KDKA) – Nearly 100,000 Pennsylvania Democrats have switched to Republican since the beginning of the year. What’s more: The Pennsylvania Republican party says more than 240-thousand new voters have joined the party since last November. The state Republican party says that the surge in Republican registrations is nearly twice the number of newly registered Republicans compared to both the 2008 and 2012 numbers combined

    Donald Trump’s get out the vote efforts have been sabotaged at every level by the GOP, sources report exclusively to this reporter. Some of the sabotage is obvious and clear, and others is more subtle. Their motivations for sabotage vary from personal and professional jealousy to financial. The bait-and-switch. When a Donald Trump volunteer goes to the local GOP office to get out the vote, she’ll be sent out to knock on doors for down ballot candidates in neighborhoods Trump has already won. Would be volunteers have reported to me that when the showed up at the GOP office, the...

    The Republican National Committee provided new voter registration numbers to Breitbart News: Florida Net:  +261,715 Iowa Net:  +38,913 Nevada Net:  +12,720 North Carolina Net:  +173,785 Pennsylvania Net:  +223,552 The Pennsylvania number is especially significant. Republicans signed up 30,000 people there in September alone. The Trump campaign in Pennsylvania is fired up but did not want to go on record at this time, in part because Generals MacArthur and Patton would not telegraph to the enemy their next moves. Absentee ballot requests are going up for the GOP Florida: 335,000 more requests for absentee ballots among Republicans Iowa: The Iowa Trump...
  • ‘Missing’ White Voters Could Elect Trump. But First They Need To Register.

    In 2012, President Obama won re-election by almost 5 million votes, but about 47 million eligible white voters without a college degree — including 24 million men — didn’t bother to vote. In 2016, these nonvoters are part of the demographic that is most strongly in favor of Donald Trump. If Trump rouses even a fraction of these notoriously disaffected Americans — like this grease-smudged, 61-year-old first-time voter in western Pennsylvania — he could surge to victory. There’s just one catch: If we’re on the cusp of a blue-collar Great Awakening, it’s not yet showing up in the registration data....
  • Judge blocks Election Day registration at Illinois polling places

    Chicago Tribune ^ | 9/28/2016 | Leonor Vivanco and Rick Pearson
    A federal judge Tuesday blocked Election Day voter registration at polling places in Illinois, declaring a state law allowing the practice unconstitutional because it created one set of rules for cities and another for rural areas. Voters will still be able to register Nov. 8 and cast a ballot for president but only at a limited number of sites, including the county clerk's office, according to the Illinois State Board of Elections. The ruling, handed down on National Voter Registration Day, is the latest front in a broader battle between Democrats led by House Speaker Michael Madigan and Republicans led...
  • Smaller Chains And Indie Theaters Join Fox Searchlight In ‘Birth’ Voter Registration Drive

    A plethora of smaller theater chains and independent theaters, but none of the biggest exhibitors, joined Fox Searchlight Pictures in opening their lobbies to a voter registration drive associated with promotional screenings and the opening of The Birth Of A Nation on October 7. Fox on Monday announced a roster of participants that included Bowtie Cinemas, Marcus Theatres and Movie Taverns, among others. But power players like AMC, Regal and Cinemark were not on the list. Backers of the registration drive included public interest organizations like the League Of Women Voters and the National Coalition Of Black Civic Participation. The...

    Washington Times ^ | Sept. 18, 2016 | Stephen Dinan
    The anti-Trump immigrant voter surge has failed to materialize, as advocates’ hopes of recruiting 1 million green card holders to become citizens in time to vote have fallen short. From December, when the advocates announced their effort, to the end of June, which marks an informal application deadline for citizenship before Election Day, some 600,000 naturalization applications were filed with the immigration service. That was 9 percent more than the same period in 2012, the previous presidential election year, but way less than the 1 million that advocates sought, and it doesn’t come close to other citizenship surges. Hispanic rights...

    Republicans were doing a great job eating into their voting registration deficit over the past year. In August, however, the Democrats were finally able to staunch some of the bleeding. On August 1st, statistics showed 4,074,858 Democrats and 3,159,815 Republicans. An additional 1,106,024 voters brought the grand total to 8,340,697.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Republicans have gained ground on Democrats in registering voters in three battleground states and kept their razor-thin advantage in Iowa — encouraging news for Donald Trump eight weeks before Election Day. Republicans added hundreds of thousands of voters to the rolls since 2012 in states including Florida and Arizona, and narrowed the gap in North Carolina, according to data compiled by The Associated Press. In Iowa, Republicans prevented Democrats from surpassing them, aided by a court ruling upholding a ban on voting by ex-felons, who often register as Democrats. As Election Day approaches, voter registration drives are...

    Donald Trump's campaign is planning a concerted effort to reach out to minority voters and shed the perception by some that he is racist, part of a reset for his campaign sparked by bringing in new leadership. A senior Trump adviser characterized the strategy as "part of an ongoing conversation" and said the campaign is "looking forward." As first reported by The Washington Post, the campaign is planning to make trips to diverse and urban areas and focus on an economic and job-centric theme. Some of the effort has already been evident.

    Today Hillary Clinton remains campaigning in Pennsylvania. Yesterday Vice President Joe Biden and Hillary Clinton campaigned in Scranton, a few hundred people showed up. Today, Hillary held a voter registration campaign event in a High School gym in West Philadelphia – the attendance/turnout was essentially the same. What’s going on? Where are all these Clinton supporters the national media keep polling and talking about? The answers are really quite simple. They’re in the same place they were during the 2016 Democrat primary race.

    There are obviously verifiable vote fraud problems in North Carolina. In 2010 those problems surfaced meaningfully as indicated in the below voter fraud post from an earlier Charlotte Conservative Examiner article: Perhaps in an effort to promote North Carolina as one of the healthiest States in the Nation, this latest voter twist comes to us from Susan Myrick of the Civitas Institute in North Carolina--not to be confused with Rep. Sue Myrick of NC who is unrelated. In a radio interview with local WBT Anchor Tara Servatious, Susan reports that she has been keeping track of the number of votes...

    Not too long ago, going Democrat blue was the thing to do. But now, local voter registration offices are seeing red. So how will a GOP surge play into an election year that's packed with big races? In 2008, we saw a big Democrat comeback in Congress. But then, in the last general election, we saw what could be the beginning of a Republican rebound. Both Lehigh and Northampton counties are reporting a trend of voters who have switched parties and are now Republicans.

    Veteran Washington Post reporter Daryl Fears, part of a two-person writer team, unmistakably wrote that filmmaker John O'Keefe had “said” he “targeted” ACORN, the advocacy group, for his candid-camera expose, because it registered voters to defeat Republicans. O'Keefe said no such thing. It was a non-quote made out of whole cloth by reporter Fears, and published as fact on Sept. 17. Making the falsehood exponentially worse, the Post story then was retailed worldwide by the Associated Press.

    Community-organizing group Acorn said Thursday it was considering quitting its voter-registration work amid a growing political storm over its activities, a move that could hurt Democrats at the polls. In the latest rebuke, the House of Representatives voted overwhelmingly Thursday to block the group from receiving federal funds. Republicans attached the measure attacking Acorn to an unrelated bill that advances a top Democratic priority: making the federal government the sole provider of college loans, forcing private lenders out of the origination market. The Acorn measure passed with strong bipartisan support, 345-75, while the student-loan bill passed by 253-171, largely along...

Even in the 2nd most unionized US state (NY is #1), churches are 64% larger than unions.

    Jimmy Carter was the last Democratic presidential candidate to win over Chesapeake voters. That was 1976. So it surprised a few people when Barack Obama edged by Republican John McCain in Chesapeake last week by 1,369 votes. Chesapeake has been a conservative stronghold for three decades. But on Nov. 4, this traditionally Republican city turned blue - and local Democrats say the Obama victory here was no stroke of luck. With the help of paid Obama staffers who swooped in to Chesapeake in the months leading up to the election, Democrats say, they made an organized effort to increase the...

    On Oct. 6, the community organizing group Acorn and an affiliated charity called Project Vote announced with jubilation that they had registered 1.3 million new voters. But it turns out the claim was a wild exaggeration, and the real number of newly registered voters nationwide is closer to 450,000, Project Vote’s executive director, Michael Slater, said in an interview. The remainder are registered voters who were changing their address and roughly 400,000 that were rejected by election officials for a variety of reasons, including duplicate registrations, incomplete forms and fraudulent submissions from low-paid field workers trying to please their supervisors,...

    The Detroit News is a Gannett publication so we can't post excerpts -- only this LINK. However, the gist of the story is that according to the Michigan Secretary of state, voter registration is way up despite decreasing population -- to 98 percent of the state's voting age population. The increase comes from strong RAT areas such as college towns and Detroit. The Rat Secretary of State is pleased people are so excited about the election.
