The battleground state of Wisconsin was ordered to remove more than 200,000 people from its voter registration lists. A judge said they may have moved, but Democrats fear this will unfairly affect votes.
One reason it flipped red in 2016 is because of low turnout, despite a strong turnout for Barack Obama.
President Donald Trump won the state in 2016 by fewer than 23,000 votes, partly because of his surprise victory in Racine County. President Obama won the county in 2008 and 2012.
Turnout among black Wisconsinites fell nearly 19% between the 2012 and 2016 elections.
Racine Democrat Corey Prince with the NAACP said voters didn’t turn out for Hillary Clinton because of a “lack of organizing.”
“Black people have realized … our vote is being taken for granted,” he told CBS News correspondent Adriana Diaz.
“There’s a democratic America that looks at Donald Trump as like he’s the worst thing ever,” Prince said. “Black people are kind of like ‘yawn, you know, I’ve seen worse’ … We see Donald when we go to the bank and ask for a loan, we see Donald when we get pulled over … and so Donald ain’t that bad to us. He’s not the worst. We would love to get behind something better. Give us that picture, give us the picture of something better, don’t talk about what’s so bad.”
