"Voter turnout in Baltimore City, for example, is 17.5 percent lower than in the 2012 race for president."

Since in 2012 a black man was running for President for the Democrats and in 2016 a white woman was running for President for the Democrats and Baltimore City is predominately a Democratic city, does this mean that the voters in Baltimore City are both racist and sexist.

The thought of rigged elections can influence people. But that is the very reason everyone should vote.

Trump had the Most and Biggest Turnout than anyone in history. The black vote for him was double 2008, the Hispanic was Much higher this year for Trump, the Asian vote Very high as well and the Female vote far surpassed the 'lying polls'...there's much more info out there but I'm not listing it all now.
