More great news from Georgeduh:
ATLANTA – With just over two weeks until election day, early voting is still breaking records in Georgia.
As of Monday morning, over 837,000 people have voted across the Peach State.
Gabe Sterling with the Georgia Secretary of State’s Office says 758,808 people have voted early in person and 78,789 absentees ballots have been accepted. That means the number of early votes should pass the 1 million mark by Tuesday, he said.
Our Failed Political Press ™ has been covering the polling, and not the results (so far) and I could not help but notice that someone activated the Kornacki mechanism at MSNBC, and I darkly suspect that is by design. Clicks and eyeballs go to speculation and not to reporting, you know, actual numbers that matter.
(There’s been a lot of speculative blather in Republican News that Black Americans are sitting out this election, and it is completely unfounded, btw. Methinks that narrative has been planted by people that have an interest in suppressing the Black vote, and I wonder who that could be?)
While I am far from sanguine about the midterms, the actual early voting is astonishingly robust. You can follow the early voting totals at the The United States Election Project.
