    You know there are many examples of voter fraud that happen, happening from both sides. Don't play dumb. Here is your request of absolute voter fraud along with you assertion that NC voter fraud that you already admit to.

    Now, show us something other than the new black panthers standing out side a polling place intimidating voters not to vote because of their skin color. If you truly believe there is actual suppression, there should be evidence.

    How do you define "actual voter suppression?"

    If you are willing to include the "intimidation" caused by black panther members standing outside a polling station, would you also include a strict form of voter ID law the prevents student IDs as an acceptable method, for example?

    See, the NBPs targeted only whites going to the polls, the voter ID laws applied to everyone equally.

    What margin would it have taken here? How about Virginia last year for control of the statehouse?

    You intentionally edited my post. I will post it again, in full - in response.

    I assert the same as I always have. Voter fraud does not take place on a statistically significant margin.

    One particular study found, consistent with others, roughly a dozen instances across a dozen years out of more than one billion votes cast. On the other hand, strict forms of voter ID are associated with a 2-3% reduction in voter turnout. That is exponentially much more likely to affect an election.

    The fact that voter fraud could have altered an election is irrelevant if you can't establish that it actually happened, let alone establish that it could alter the election.

    I have seen your bullshit many times blue guy. You do not talk about cases of voter fraud. Instead, you try to find close elections and say, "holy ****, voter fraud is so bad because look how it could have altered this election." It is a ****ing terrible and pathetic argument.

    Because "everyone" has a student ID.

    I asked you to define actual voter suppression. I take it that you do not accept voter suppression as "actual" if it can, theoretically, apply to everyone equally?

    Because it was nothing but a dodge of my question to you with your canard about voter fraud isn't an issue because it is not done on a massive scale.............still waiting

    What margin would it have taken here? How in Virginia last year for control of the statehouse? Give me the number.
