I just saw Rachel's graph displaying how Democratic voter registration in Florida has cratered

And my guts churned and my heart sank.

It showed how in the last two election cycles Dems registered something like 160 thousand new voters in 2004, nearly 260 thousand in 2008, and this year.....only 11,500.

What. The. Fuck.

And it's because of Florida's new voter ID (suppression) laws.

No matter what the polls say....generally that Obama is leading (fuck the Gallup Daily tracking poll) in most swing states and nationally by a few percentage points maybe more, over Romney...no matter what they say....how the hell can Obama win? Repuke registrations meantime have remained static. 11,500. How can that not be representative of what's happened in the other swing states where they've brought in these restrictive, voter suppression laws. It's gotta be the same, doesn't it?

They're stealing this election, and they're getting away with it.

2. Rachel's info showed that Repug registration was basically the same

Like 100 thousand or so each cycle. Compared to 11,500 for the Dems. This is scary shit.
