I have been thinking about this post since I first read it. I was very suprised with the number of white voters that didn't vote compared to 2008 and wondered what was the difference. The only difference I could come up with was the shortened early voting days resulting in extremely long lines. I think the Republican governor hurt us more then he helped us by making voting harder rather then easier. I wonder how many white voters just drove by their voting place and didn't stop when they saw the long lines.
