The Washington Post just embarrassed Spartacus Cory Booker (D-N.J.) over his voter suppression claims.
The liberal newspaper gave Booker four “Pinocchio’s” after he claimed Hillary lost Michigan because the black vote was suppressed by “everybody from Republicans to Russians.”
“We lost the state of Michigan because everybody from Republicans to Russians were targeting the suppression of African American voters,” Booker said during the debate.
Trump won Michigan by 10,704 votes and won the rustbelt by 70,000. The Democrats refuse to accept reality – Hilary was hated and didn’t show up to campaign.
Her work on NAFTA and the crime bill was too much to forgive for key Dem voting blocks.
The world changed, the Democrats did not.
Blaming the GOP for this nonsense may feel good but it will lead to another loss in 2020.
From The Hill:
The newspaper noted that though black turnout did decrease in Michigan, exit data has shown it could have been because levels came down from former President Obama’s reelection in 2012.
“All things being equal, the loss of Michigan could be explained by weaker but expected black turnout and stronger but unexpected white turnout,” the Post noted.
The Post also noted that “election experts say they see little or no evidence that the activities by the Russians and the Trump campaign actually swayed the election in Michigan.”
The newspaper wrote that the Booker campaign had provided it with links about potential Russian and Republican activities, but it noted that “none demonstrated that the purported suppression activities delivered Michigan to Trump.”
“Perhaps that’s an argument for a black candidate like Booker to be on the ticket, but he’s wrong to claim the Russians and the GOP were responsible for Clinton’s loss in Michigan. The burden of proof is on Booker, and he failed to back up his claim. He earns Four Pinocchios,” the Post concluded.
