Like millions of advertising dollars have been highlighted Mitt Romney, his allies are trying to rig the elections in the worst tradition of Jim Crow
Throughout the U.S. election, one of the most popular stories among Democrats and liberal media is that the Republicans are doing everything possible to wrest the election of a democratic process. They are, the theory went, will buy and testify through PACS, which were legalized in existence in 2010.
The trope of the dark right billionaires who control the country from behind the fig leaves Super Pac is so familiar that satirizes Will Ferrell and Zack Galifinakis future, "very stupid comedy and political intermittent Campaign . Dan Aykroyd and John Lithgow play a couple of Mr Smithers as brothers who overlook what happens to David and Charles Koch, two billionaire American libertarians, because of their wealth and political manipulation, has been described as "the standard oil of our time. "
However, it is more the appearance of the super PACs could not have the effect that the Democrats feared. To begin with, even through the Republicans have more money than Democrats to pass through outside groups - estimates range from anywhere between four times up to 18 times longer, are regularly mouth - Romney is no way to kill him. Ideally, it is a tie and, according to recent polls, losing crucial swing states.
"People do not pay attention to political ads the way they did," said Republican pollster campaign the Wall Street Journal this week by way of explanation, and it is almost certain. Another possible factor is that, in this election, political ads, no matter simply because many people in America are not actually vote for none of the candidates are voting against the other. So if someone just decided they just want Obama, all anti-Romney ads in the world will not make a big difference to them.
But if you can not make people pay attention to the ads, or change your mind, might stop voting at all. And it is here that the accusations of theft electoral both stick and could have more concerns.
Much has been preoccupied with electoral fraud conservatives and right-wing media to the point that Fox News even has a "unit of election fraud." To avoid this terrible crime against democracy, Republicans have struggled to implement voter ID laws and voter suppression, particularly focusing on the crucial swing states, with eight states and adopt a law that people must present a document approved by the State and image in order to vote. This movement, as mainly affect minorities, the poor, the elderly and students when it comes to vote - not because it is illegal for them to vote, but because these are the groups most often have no identification with image, such as driving licenses and passports. In this case, they are also more likely to vote Democratic than Republican. And of course, Republicans know that Mike Turzai, Pennsylvania, the Republican state representative, said in a speech in June:Now all this would be bad enough if election fraud was a real problem. But it is not. Despite extensive research by Republicans in Florida and Colorado, have found less than one tenth of 1% of illegals among registered voters. Colorado Secretary of State Scott Gessler said last year that 11,805 non-citizens were committing electoral fraud. As AP reported this week, that number was revised to 141 and of this number, only 35 voted. This equates to 0.004% of the voting rights of the State.
