I agree we just don't know who is going to vote and who will stay home and in what numbers.

Those numbers are the exact general election numbers. I do expect a fairly easy Chambliss win in the general. I will be amazed if the black vote actually turns out.

Better not say things like that.  The forum will label you a racist.  Or maybe they won't since you're from the North Roll Eyes

am i missing where someone was assailed for an evil racist sentiment like "black people are less likely to vote in non-General elections"?

Sounds like a bad Chris Rock routine.  "White people ALWAYSSS be votin' in them run-offs!"

Yeah, Harry got blasted for saying he blamed blacks for Musgrove's defeat since they didn't turn out by enough to vote for him in enough numbers or whatever. He backed down though when I pointed out the exit polls gave Musgrove 92% of the black vote.

And if the race had been remotely close, he may have had a point about turnout.
