You may recall that last summer MLB team owners voted to move the All-Star Game out of Atlanta out of a false outrage about Georgia’s supposed “voter suppression” law. Other major corporations wilted under the political pressure as well and sided with the race-baiters.
Worst of all was the speech that Biden delivered last summer in Atlanta when he accused supporters of the bill to be modern-day versions of “George Wallace and Jefferson Davis.”
Then reality set in. Under the new law, rather than voter suppression, the state is experiencing record early voter turnout. According to the Secretary of State in Georgia:
“As the third week of early voting for Georgia’s 2022 primary election continues, Georgia voters are turning out in record numbers across the state. Through Monday, May 16th, more than 426,000 people have early voted in Georgia—a 200 % increase from the same point in the early voting period in the 2018 primary election and a 150 % increase in the same point in the early voting period in the 2020 primary election. Georgia has had record early voting turnout since the first day of early voting this year, surging to nearly three times the number on the first day of primary voting in 2018 and double that of 2020, and has continued on that path since.”
