WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Liberal activists on Wednesday criticized new voter registration requirements in dozens of states, saying millions of people could be deterred from voting in the November U.S. presidential election – a claim their opponents disputed.
The Center for American Progress issued a report that said new barriers to voting have been enacted by conservative state legislatures with the aim of disenfranchising voters from among certain groups such as low-income voters, minorities and college students. Those constituencies have tended to favor Democrats.
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Ron Paul’s loyal band of supporters are just accepting now what many have known for a long time: the Texas congressman’s White House bid is fading badly.
Paul’s poll numbers are down and he has no chance of earning the Republican nomination. He is 29 percentage points behind front-runner Mitt Romney in a poll for Tuesday’s Wisconsin primary.
