Michigan Primary Trouble: The Final Snag?
Made popular 2604 days ago in
The politics of this are crystal clear. The Obama campaign did not want a Michigan re-vote or a Florida re-vote. So they've raised objection after objection. Some of them have been spurious and others have been valid.
Last night, the following objection began to make the rounds:
In Michigan, there is a law stating that the first time you vote, you have to do so in-person, and can only request an absentee after doing that initial in-person verification. This would obviously be a huge problem for Obama folks, as pretty much all college students are newly registered. Some will be stuck at school and can't vote absentee from home; others will be newly registered at their school and won't be able to vote there as they will be home as summer will have begun.
Well, this is so because a Michigan law passed by a Republican-controlled legislature in the mid-1990s prohibits students from being registered to vote at a different address than their driver's license. And Michigan's motor vehicle laws require that persons must be registered to vote at their residence address.

Does Obama stand to lose more if he does not agree to a Michigan revote?
Yes, If he wins the results would be illegitimate
No, he would be better off not agreeing to a revote
This is not a scientific survey,
to learn more. Results may not total 100% due to rounding and voting descrepencies.

No - He's the only candidate that can bring out the 18-25 year olds and a good number of independent voters in the general election.
