Is there really any purpose to debate how much higher turn outs were? Even if it was only 1% higher, it don't change my point.

My whole point was to debunk the theory of blacks swaying the entire vote, as the conservatives tend to hint at. The 10% increase in black voter turnout in 2008 didn't have much effect on the numbers that have been pretty consistent. With only 13% of the population a 10 percent increase is only a maximum of 1.3% of the overall turnout.

Your comments are all the fact needed to constantly prove you a hypocrite..

Let me break it down for you again..

"They are intolerant!" "But I wouldn't tolerate them having a parade!"

I don't believe you proved your point in debunking any theory but the one in your head.

If you say so.
I'm fairly certain you can dissect this thread, and you're the only one who has made that claim.
I don't know why you care so much.

It's a claim conservatives make all the time, and it's untrue. Vrist seemed to have that mindset, and I wanted to show him the actual numbers. I'm also fairly certain I could find posts you've made stating that exact thing.
