3. Guess Trump did not reach far enough or his snow job did not convince them he was the greatest.

This is good news, I have worked on election day in the past few years and noticed a greater number of black females was voting and then more black males, I thought this is great. This will be a big thorn in Trump's side, when the voting is counted he will know the Mexicans, Muslims and Blacks has beat him. A good message to send to those who wants to continue to disparage ethnic groups.

4. I saw it in Dayton today too!

I'm a white male, but most of the voters were African American. It seems like a safe bet that most of them voted for Hillary!

I was also thankful that I didn't see any Trump supporters outside the building. There was just a small group of Democratic supporters more than 100 feet from the building, cheerfully handing out information.

Trump may manage to get less than 3% of the black vote nationally, a startling accomplishment.

From the tRumpy FReak site. Don (get it?) protective clothing:

If the black vote is any indication...it is going to be an election to
celebrate and remember!

He'll win more Black votes than any Republican in 40 years.

Because he's sincere.

I have a bet with another FReeper. I bet Trump gets over 25% of the
black vote. I made the bet about 6 months ago and now think he will
get at least 30%.

He will win 20% of the black vote and it will be a landslide for
Trump. I know quite a few blacks here in the suburbs of Chicago that
will vote for him. They have NEVER voted for a GOP candidate before.

6 posted on 2016-10-01, 3:06:47 AM by eekitsagreek


Trump will get close to 50% this time around (of the Black vote), and
he'll bring in roughly 50% more "new" voters than have voted in
history. That is, last cycle's GOP totals plus 50% new.

Massive mandate landslide, epochal change back to what worked so well
for 200 years. This nation will turn our face back to God, and He has
promised to "heal our land."

It fell while reading those posts. My God, how delusional can they be? I live in a blue state,
but my little corner of the world is mostly repuke. I think I'll stay indoors for a few days
after the vote, as I really don't want to have to sweep up the exploding brains that are going to be
all over the streets around my house.



I can't WAIT to hear them having to say 'President Clinton' again.

Personally, I'd go when I knew they'd be there so I could give them their hate stares right back. Take the pepper spray if it made me feel better, leave the children home (even if they are bigger than me now).

25. For one example, I know many elderly people who would be

whether they should be or not. Trump has attracted and riled up some very unsavory people, many of whom are armed and not too bright. I will not be afraid to vote, but I do not have a Hillary sign in my yard or on my car, even though I had both for Obama. The local crazies are just too rabid this time around.

39. My MIL was a strong woman who became more timid with age,

but it was taking on contentious battles like bad HOA boards and such. A single visit to the polls she could handle. She had the good sense not to worry about something that probably wouldn't happen, and knowing her, she'd be at least a little disappointed when it didn't.

Btw, do your local election authorities expect trouble? If so, I hope they and the community are taking steps to reassure and secure the safety of all those elderly people. Seems to me with all those gas-guzzling SUVs out there no old lady should have to go vote alone.

40. I doubt that anyone expects trouble voting where I live.

In past elections we have heard of ridiculously long lines in large cities which can be a problem for elderly and disabled people, as well as confrontations/intimidation of minority and young voters.

20. They stole 2004 by switching black votes to Bush votes.

 

They stole Floridain 2000 by caging black voters, ... I could go one. Not only don't Republicans think black communities should vote, minority communities are their go to places to alter election outcomes.

Since there are no voting machines involved in early voting, I'd favor early voting anyplace with voting machines.

from the comment section

"So good to see and read your story. Way to go, Ohio! Show us how it's done."

"The wave begins.. America may show how great it is, after all, this election."
