    I vote every year. Lucky to have only a three minute wait. However, I have no hopes that the political culture would shift towards my preference. Fully expect social rights to be swept away over the next 2 to 6 years.

    How does this equate to a fix? And of course you're implying that this "fix" is meant to favor the republicans. But I think long wait-times to vote would favor the democrats. All those unemployed millennial democrats can wait around all day to vote. The republicans have to be back to work. 

    Okay I'm half-kidding with the "unemployed democrats" thing but come on, how is this a "fix?"

    It depends on which districts the long lines are in and which party controls the board of canvassers. 2004 in Ohio, extremely long lines and wait times were reported and it was found that the repub board of elections or canvassers placed too few machines in mostly minority, poor and majority dem wards and plenty of machines in predominantly white, wealthier and repub wards. Basically amounts to legal voter suppression as there are typically no laws regarding how many voting machines, poll workers or the time of cut off if you’re in line but haven’t voted when the polls close. So yea, a “fix.” And I’ll bet the local faux news and AM radio talk shows are hyping the long lines and utter chaos as well.

    I think that the high voter turnout is due in large part to Trump. Nearly 10 million more people voted in the 2016 general election than did in 2012. That has to be attributed to Trump. And I think the same may be true in this mid-term.

    I understand your logic here: Trump is so horrible that people are coming out to vote against him. But if you separated everyone into two groups: "people that always vote" and "people that are voting because of Trump"...and then you took that "people that are voting because of Trump" group and see if there's more for him or against him, I'd wager a guess there'd be more for him. But that's just a guess.

    Absolutely true in '16, but the prediction is the opposite for today.  In fact, if your statement were true, then we wouldn't be discussing the "blue wave" nor would democrats have won the vast majority of the special elections in the last two years.  AND big elections in 17 (particularly in Virginia) would not have been a complete wipeout against the GOP.  Democrats won net 13 seat in the legislature (that's enormous), and all three executive seats.

    Yes, but possibly not for the reason he would prefer.   
    I understand your logic here: Trump is so horrible that people are coming out to vote against him. But if you separated everyone into two groups: "people that always vote" and "people that are voting because of Trump"...and then you took that "people that are voting because of Trump" group and see if there's more for him or against him, I'd wager a guess there'd be more for him. But that's just a guess. 
    Not this time around (not having one of the worst candidates ever on the ballot, as was the case two years ago, will certainly help too)...

    Even though I mailed in my vote and I've not been in any lines to see voters placing their votes. I can tell you the the turnout here in
    S FL is up considerably. I think the up tick is with the young voters which always a good sign.

    Peace
    I think that the high voter turnout is due in large part to Trump. Nearly 10 million more people voted in the 2016 general election than did in 2012. That has to be attributed to Trump. And I think the same may be true in this mid-term.
