There are several papers out there pointing out that the greater the turnout, the less successful Republicans are at the polls. They know it’s a pretty blunt tool, but they’ll use any dirty tricks they can.
PS: Luckovich may have a point. A more recent analysis of voting patterns is a lot more nuanced than what I mentioned above. Perhaps it’s fortunate that the GOP doesn’t do “nuance”… though their wonks are as bright as anybody.
