Perhaps you recall my Facebook-commenting Trumpeteer, quoted more expansively here, who shrieked the other day that "VOTER suppression WILL NOT WORK THIS TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Turns out, he was right. From Bloomberg Politics:
"We have three major voter suppression operations under way," says a [Trump campaign] senior official. They’re aimed at three groups Clinton needs to win overwhelmingly: idealistic white liberals, young women, and African Americans. Trump’s invocation at the debate of Clinton’s WikiLeaks e-mails and support for the Trans-Pacific Partnership was designed to turn off Sanders supporters. The parade of women who say they were sexually assaulted by Bill Clinton and harassed or threatened by Hillary is meant to undermine her appeal to young women. And her 1996 suggestion that some African American males are "super predators" is the basis of a below-the-radar effort to discourage infrequent black voters from showing up at the polls.
All of which, according to an AP-GfK poll just released, has contributed to Clinton's significant leads over Trump in bipartisan support, "fueled by increased enthusiasm." Reports the Boston Herald: Hillary "has secured the support of 90 percent of likely Democratic voters, and also has the backing of 15 percent of more moderate Republicans. Just 79 percent of all Republicans surveyed say they are voting for their party's nominee."
