3. In reality, voting by incarcerated felons is an emotionally charged issue,

not one that most see as a racial issue. People instinctively do not want murderers, rapists, and other violent felons to be able to vote from prison. They barely think it's OK for their right to vote to be returned after they've served their sentence.

Anyone trying to sell that idea is working against themselves. It's just not a popular idea in any way, except among a small group of so-called progressives. It's just an impossible issue to sell to almost everyone else. That's because it makes no sense to most people.
