Wanna know why republican got things so dead wrong ?

It's really very simple ... the majority of their polls skewed the numbers based on their incorrect assumption that shortened early voting hours, combined with fewer voting locations, along with misinformation campaigns would work to discourage "certain voters". They placed their bets on extra long lines leading African-American, Latino and young voters to turn around and go home.

This is the only explanation I see that can explain the "shellshock".

2. WHAT!

''' They placed their bets on extra long lines leading African-American, Latino, and young voters to turn around and go home. '''

Why would anyone think AA, Latinos, and young voters would not stand in line (if need be), to cast their vote?! Anyone who would think that about AA, Latinos, and the young voter is a bigot.

AA, Latinos, and young people are just as dedicated in getting their votes recorded as anyone else.
