if you are discouraging minority voters, you are taking votes from dems. Maybe it’s not by huge numbers, but it nobody claims it is a massive bias, but a bias impact nonetheless.
Well, there actually ARE a lot of people who claim that the sole reason for measures such as Voter ID, curtailing early voting hours, etc., is racism. Of course, the “racist” word is thrown around like popcorn these days; at this point, it really doesn’t mean anything anymore.
so comparing poor whites vs poor latino etc… is a diversion. what matters here is the relative impact on whites vs non whites
Depends on how the voters split out in your state. Nationally, Latinos break (D) by about 70–30, but in Texas, it’s more like 55–45. So, there is local variation.
