Stacey Abrams vient de décrocher une nomination aux Primetime Emmy pour sa performance en voix off dans l'émission spéciale électorale "Black-ish" d'ABC. Abrams a fait son apparition dans un épisode de la série l'automne dernier dans un spécial...
As the Pennsylvania votes rolled in, people changed Gritty's face on Olenna's body with a simple caption: "Tell Donald, I want him to know it was me."
It must be the best - THE BEST - sending as many texts since the election as the reinvention of "The Avengers" telling the story of a military man from
Ahead of the current US election of 2016, New York Magazine asked, "Could Hillary Clinton win Georgia?" That same year, the New York Times ran an op-ed saying, "Why Hillary Clinton Could Win Georgia" Trump won the state In 2017, in a special election held to fill the seat vacated by the representative of then Tom Price, who stepped down to become Donald Trump's Health and Human Services Secretary Jon Ossoff, a Democrat, finished first in a multi-party primary - but as he won less than 50% of the vote, Georgia's sixth congressional district passed the run-off election It was endorsed by civil rights icon and Congressman John Lewis, progressive superstar and Sen. Bernie Sanders, and Democratic House leader Stacey Abrams State Ossoff broke national fundraising records Yet his opponent, Republican Karen Handel, won with 519% of the overall vote In 2018, Stacey Abrams ran against Brian Kemp for governor Kemp retained his post of Georgian Secretary of State, who oversees the elections, while standing for election His office, which canceled more than one million voter registrations between 2012 and 2018, announced that it was investigating the Georgian Democratic Party two days before the elections for "possible cybercrime" Still, Abrams had a chance She was charismatic, and she would've made history as the first black female governor She was endorsed by Sanders, Oprah Winfrey and Barack Obama She lost by 50,000 votes Here the story changes: Abrams , in her concession speech, announced that she would create Fair Fight Action, a non-profit voting organization Today, as Biden votes in the 2020 presidential election and Democrats hold their breath that history will not repeat itself, the question isn't just, "Will Georgia go blue?" But also: "Are there any unfair obstacles that could keep all voters who want to vote at the ballot box and prevent every vote from being counted?" *** Georgia is in the 'swaying states' conversation because of its demographics Charles Bullock, III, professor of political science at the University of Georgia, said the south is dividing Some Republican states are becoming more Republican and some Republican states go democratic Georgia seems to be in the latter camp var pymParent = new pymParent ('ga-state-demos',' https: // nsmg-projects-publics3eu-west-2Amazonawscom / live / nsmg-us20 / demo / indexhtml? s = ga ', {}); # ga-state-demos iframe {width: 100%! important;} For years the Georgian population was broadly divided between white and black Georgians In 2000, for example, the population was 651 percent white and 287 percent black Now, however, not only is the black population increasing , but Asian-American and Hispanic populations are also increasing From 2000 to 2012, the number of Asian Americans registered to vote doubled, and the number of ballots actually cast by Asian Americans increased by 168 % over the same period Non-white voters are historically more likely than white voters to vote Democrats In addition, thousands of people are moving to Georgia from outside the south, with some bringing their Democratic-leaning voting preferences with them: in 2018, 69,106 people moved elsewhere in the United States to Georgia, making it the country's fifth-largest destination for the state migration to the state, with residents coming from Florida, New York, Tennessee, Texas and California And traditionally older and whiter Republican voters? “To put it very simply,” Bullock said, “Republicans are dying and their grandchildren are voting Democrats” *** Not all votes in Georgia are cast or counted equally About the 2018 election, Andra Gillespie, associate professor of political science at Emory University in Atlanta, Ga., Noted that keeping Brian Kemp as Secretary of State while running for governor was "technically legal, [but] the optics were deeply problematic. "The person overseeing the election was also present. In addition, Georgia put in place some other policies that could have effectively, if not intentionally, repressed voters The polling stations were closed statewide following the 2013 Supreme Court ruling that overturned the Voting Rights Act, which previously required local governments to seek federal government permission before bringing in r changes to voting practices The reinstatement in 2017 by Kemp and the Georgia General Assembly of “exact match”, a policy which means that a voter information must be “exact match” with records held by the Georgian Department of Driver Services or the Social Security Administration, has had a negative impact on voters of color, according to a lawsuit filed by voting rights groups and there is the specter of voter suppression, Gillespie said, in the suspicion that some voters feel that some constituencies serving African American and low-income areas see their voter turnout consistently underestimated, meaning they receive fewer resources on election day, which in turn means more lines to vote "We'll never be able to quantify who dropped out of the line," said Gillespie, "who went home and didn't come back"Georgia is not a red state," Abigail Collazo, former Abrams spokesperson wrote in an email to the New Statesman, "it is a blue state with a history of voter suppression”Var pymParent = new pymParent ('ga-state-pol', 'https: // nsmg-projects-publics3eu-west-2Amazonawscom / live / nsmg-us20 / pol / indexhtml? S = ga', {}); # ga-state-pol iframe {width: 100%! important;} That doesn't necessarily mean history will repeat itself Georgia has strayed far from the 'exact match' Fulton County, where Atlanta is located, apparently working to fix electoral issues And voters are different Also In Georgia, Collazo said, there is "a newly engaged electorate that is more determined than ever to be represented by those who put our families and communities first" "Grassroots awareness is increased," Gillespie said This is partly because of the 2018 governor's election, she added, and partly because the "baseless allegations of electoral fraud" and "alleged post office slowdowns" mean that people are "legitimately worried" about whether their mailing ballots will be received on time The high turnout in early voting and the high use of postal voting are due to the pandemic e, but also because there are, according to Gillespie, “people who had their guards looking for evidence of voter suppression.” “People on the ground here don't take anything for granted, which is why most of organizers are paying more attention to making sure voters have the resources they need to vote safely and securely than they pay in the last polls, ”Collazo said *** say Democrats - not just Biden, but also Jon Ossoff, who runs to overthrow Sen. David Perdue, and Rev. Raphael Warnock, who runs to overthrow Kelly Loeffler in a special election - will win Georgia's new secretary. Georgia State Brad Raffensperger warned of long lines during the last week of early voting The level of voter enthusiasm indicated by these lines is not unexpected, according to Callazo, and "it there will be no excuse for secretary of state's office to pretend they weren't prepared to take responsibility ”In a close election, the reality of black Americans and low-income voters having to spend hours online to vote could make a difference A small margin of people deciding to stay home could also make a difference According to figures available this week, Gillespie said: “Black voters are turning to early voting at a slightly slower pace than their voter registration figures"This is not good news for Biden, whose" quest to win Georgia depends on minority participation "Bullock believes another group matters too: suburban white women To win, said Bullock, Biden will need black voters to make up 30% of the overall vote, as well as getting at least 30% of the white vote "The first part is more achievable," he said "The challenge has been to get that 30% of the white vote No recent Democrats have come close" And well-educated white women from the suburbs "are evolving not democratically as fast as similar women in some other states "Either way, Georgia today is not the Georgia of two or four, ten or 20 years ago" Recent election results show that the advantage Republicans enjoyed has narrowed over time, "said Gillespie "The double-digit wins in mid-August have been replaced by single-digit wins" And unlike in years past, Democrats and Republicans have to make an effort to "get out the vote," Gillespie said. "You can't no longer take for granted that there are more Republicans than Democrats in the state "
