GOP Purges Voters In Close Election States Ahead Of 2020 | Rachel Maddow | MSNBC


Author Since: Mar 11, 2019

  1. purging the voter list of minorities, corrupt over-sight of elections, hack-able voting machines, bought and payed for super delegates, made up poles, corrupt courts and judges, the same billionaire donors for all candidates, and the smearing/ignoring propaganda press… the american people do not stand a chance. we live in a fascist oligarchy, and things are about to get worse.

  2. I am sorry and glad at the same time that I left America for Europe when I was young America is no longer the land of the free and the brave it is now the land of liars and wealthy 1%rs that care for nothing but how much they can take from the poor and give to themselves and destroy the world for our children and grandchildren

  3. To those people whose voter registration has been purged, then immediate register again. Stick it to these partisan wretches. Keep a close eye on the voter rolls!

  4. If we were a real democracy, one that actually cared about giving power to the people to choose their leaders, we would make a national voter registration based on social security number. States would then be obligated to check against that registration roll and update their own rolls constantly. This is such a cynical, terrible practice that the GOP has adopted.

  5. I’m in Wisconsin I have a Voice and the government protecting us is taking that away. This isn’t a Monarchy. And we should be told to sit down and shut up. I say Stand up and Don’t Tread on Me!!!!

  6. Ok, impassioned flurry of 100 words a minute is great. BUT, providing information about what ACTIONS locals can take, to help people who have barriers to getting re-registered, would be MUCH more helpful. Organize drives, connect with groups that fund-raise.

  7. Good thing to do regularly is to call your local county or parish auditors office give name & address & inquire if your voters registration is listed AND accurate with any updated name or address changes. Just checked mine & needed to make an update.

  8. Sorry if this is a stupid question(I live in Ireland) but is this not against the constitution? Like what is the bases for having these people removed?

  9. Now I could be wrong I just went and read something on this but it’s the state laws that were set up a long time ago that’s causing this purge to happen not something set up by the Republicans so this is a state law that is being carried out right?

  10. What are the reasons given for taking these people off the voter roles? Are those legitimate reasons? How can a person find out if they were removed, and is there a way to re qualify to vote prior to the 2020 election? I’m surprised Rachel didn’t cover these questions in her segment.

  11. Wow, who needs facts when you have Rachel. Wisconsin simply purged bogus registrations. You had 30 days to validate your home address. Doesn't anybody want to play fairly anymore?

  12. As a child I was always thrown history George Washington, Abraham Lincoln Ben Franklin our founders. This could have been a Galaxy away it was so foreign to me I was a minority child in Los Angeles. Fast forward to 2019 and we have the Democratic Party stating what's going on with our Constitution and the gop's offended by having to hear history they rammed it down our throats and now that we try to call them this has to be respected they say rambling of History. Typical white men
    Always wanting history to be on their side but not willing to use it what's up with that GOP'S

  13. Ms. Maddow, I have been thinking, the media and democrats seem to be saying the same thing. So, naturally, it must be true, to the media and democrats. What if they are wrong? Many people has openly said that they are wrong, So here I am stuck in the middle, not wanting to make a decision on what I'm told, what do Americans do? The House is controlled by the democrats, they have an impeachment "thing", the Senate is controlled by the Republicans, they have a stick it in your ear "thing". At some point Americans will vote. Here's the real "thing" why would an American celebrate the "ROARING 20'S" by making a guess that another person in the White House would make their life better. The fact might be made more clear when the law (rule of law) finds fault with some people in the Obama Administration, or clear some folks in the Trump Administration. Being "dramatic" is great for show, Hanging for treason is "dramatic", can only be done in a couple of states, waxing eloquent is "dramatic", making a speech on the house floor is "dramatic". The only thing voters can do to be dramatic, has been done. My gut feeling is that the only thing voters will do that can be considered "dramatic" is to return their choice to the White House, he does find it some what dated, but he manages. The only other thing I fine interesting is that the democrats understand it's the "economy baby" and Americans have made the last few years better, the president take credit for it, here's the thing, by bringing impeachment to the floor, Americans are not going to stop spending, but they may wonder if the ROARING 20'S will have the same effect, you would think the an all RNC roaring 20's president would be that having a 2021 Trump as president could setup a DNC power jargon-not going forward for many years to come. The DNC is betting on itself in 2020 knowing that the outcome is most likely that President Trump will be reelected. I'm not able to chose between the two sides, I trust that at some point it will be clear, but for now, keep the faith, follow your gut, and talk like you mean it. You above all the folks in your business most closely represent the DNC, you are very clear. It's your right, go go go.

  14. In WI, the DEM Governor should proclaim just before the voting in 2020 that ALL polling stations outside of urban centers and Madison will be closed for 2 weeks before and on election day. all voters in affected areas can still vote by going to the Green Bay Packer stadium – open air and waiting, and don't forget ID – valid forms are ACLU, Union, University, NAACP, NOW or Library identification. Thanks for participating in the now fair elections of 2020.

  15. If you Dems can quit crying long enough to answer my question… Assume for a moment that a valid voter's registration is deleted. Can they not re-register? Second question…. What percentages of the 230,000 are represented by each party? Oh, there I go again… wanting facts… facts… a word Dems don't know the meaning of.

  16. Lol. And democrats won’t do anything about it because they are weak and complicit. They don’t want democracy either. They want nothing to function. You’re all sheep.

  17. TRUMP HAS APPOINTED MORE JUDGES THEN ANY PRESIDENT IN HISTORY. AND YOU CAN BET THEY ARE THE CORRUPT KIND, REPUBLICANS CHEAT TO WIN ELECTIONS. WE MUST RESIST. FIGHT BACK THIS IS BS

  18. How is that not Unconstitutional what is? It sounds a lot like a racist move too. It’s time for the people who are being disenfranchised to march in the streets, and those who appreciate what is happening to join them. Don’t let America become a fascist country.

  19. The right to vote arises as a result of the simple fact a person is an American Citizen. Not because they live here-or-there or, or are on some state Roll, or anything else. This stuff about having to be on an electoral roll or having to live in some specific place and all your info etc lining up is all very well, but some discrepancy in it should not affect your right to vote. At worst, it ought be a basis for someone to LATER challenge your right to vote, and both have your day in court. There is nothing more un-American than turning another American citizen away from a voting booth based on some technical discrepancy.
    Any law regarding voting should have, as its SOLE purpose, getting as many US Citizens to vote as possible, not this partisan obsession with removing the vote from as many people as possible, just-in-case they didn't put their middle initial on their enrolment form or whatever. Their RIGHT to vote should not be infringed.

  20. I guess 300,000 people must move to Wisconsin to even out the gerrymandering. Another 350, 000 people must move to Georgia!

  21. Two places in the United States I would never move to or suggest to anyone to live there, and that would be Georgia and Wisconsin!

  22. So what is going to be done to counter this fraud that's happening? Something has to be done to counter it. The Republican party is a very dangerous party. Sickening to hear what's happening.

  23. The republicans are spineless , lecherous goons , the next thing will be torture, and concentration camps as in China, where our dear leader Trump would love to emulate his counterpart on the grand scale, ….it is upon us people the future "horrors" of the "good old boys, with their cherished guns " ready to eliminate any competition…., they are dangerous and malignant !
    There is no more republican party, it became a cult to the "Oh! Mighty Trump"
    Trump and its mignons, couldn't careless about the Constitution, that is why they found no reasons to engaged in this impeachment, they are bored about it, and they are not shy in acknowledging it ! God help us all !

  24. Republicans are cheating Americans out of their constitutional right to vote and have their vote counted.

    Stand up american. Criminals shall not be tolerated.
    This has NOTHING to do with a party cult….IT’S THE LAW….criminals shall not be tolerated.

  25. REPUBLICANs have adopted the Russians Proganda of purging on our votes we must protest Against REPUBLICANs voter Purging/ fraud.. Protest like they do in Hong Kong!!!!

  26. Heck in Georgia, the ballots were RETURNED by the Post Office, as undeliverable…………and what about all those that had "someone" pick them up…..the non-voters are probably getting scrubbed. Such Fair people…..what Country is this again??????

  27. There is a full year to go…. Re-register & VOTE!!! Put people in office that will hold these dickheads accountable. This is as un-American as possible. 🇺🇸😠🇺🇸

  28. I understand why it is being done by Republicans (hijacking the elections. Still what is the official reason given for this purge? What kind of reporting is this – just fueling emotions without offering all the basic facts?

  29. Great at telling half a story, you conveniently forgot to mention the reason for the purge! I’m sure your viewers deserve to know the ALL of the facts!

  30. REPUBLICANS BY HOOK AND CROOK, HAVE OVER DECADES CHEATED THEIR WAY TO POWER AND RICHES WHILE FAKING TO BE A PARTY OF LAW AND ORDER, FISCAL RESPONSIBILITY, DECENCY AND DEFENDER OF THE US CONSTITUTION. ALL THESE CLAIMS WERE FAKE. NOW THEIR TRUE VILE, DEVIANT COLOURS ARE EXPOSED FOR ALL TO SEE, WHO THEY REALLY ARE;THE ENEMIES OF THE PEOPLE.

  31. Democrats get out and fix this, you have a foking right to vote, make sure it happens! It is on you if you don't, the GOP will do everything they can to stop you! SUE THEM!

  32. I am one of the few Democrats in Kansas, and I do check my voter registration status every now and then to make sure some GOP POS didn't purge my registration. I am an active voter so there would be NO excuse.  If my registration is taken off the rolls, I will find out who did it and will seek out that individual with not nice plans for them.

  33. the republicans are making sure that the next Democrat president will be spending IT'S first term doing what 45 was doing reversing what was done GOD FORGIVE THIS EXPERIMENT

  34. OMFG… it literally takes minutes to register,you idiots. and you can do so when you go in to vote at the same time. but you idiots are acting like these people are being singled out. and you're right. they are being singled out for being registered in multiple districts… living in one district but voting in another. and a list of other issues that make tracking and tallying votes and troublesome if an issue occurs. or simply put, a better more organized system.
    oh and not to mention the year plus notice they've been given to re-register PROPERLY. BOO HOO…. jeez grow up.

  35. One single person wants to remove a quarter of a million peoples right to vote. Please make sure that single a**hole doesn't do that.

  36. Boomers for Bernie: yes the Republicans are deregistering voters of color no doubt. It's what Republicans do as a white person party. Watch out they may start with women. What disappoints me about the reporting though is there is no sense of investigation by the media, no sense of the basis for deregistering. Is it a continuation of the use of poor data and sloppy, i.e. bogus, matching criteria? Greg Palast did and maybe still does investigative reporting on this. Can MSNBC be more than a screamer in the dark?

  37. This should go to the Federal Court not a State Court. State Courts do not have the Authority to wipe people off the voting rolls.

  38. Benjamin Franklin once said that Impeachment was a better alternative to assassination. I don't know man… I bet he would say otherwise today…

  39. I would suggest calling the supervisor of elections if you may be affected by these purges and re-register if need be. do it before the election cut off time is passed. Get something in writing saying you are legally registered to vote and with a date as to the time of the registration to vote was confirmed. This will give you evidence should you turn up to vote only to be told you are not registered. I contacted the supervisor of elections in the county I was registered to vote in and was told they needed a new signature so I sent the paperwork in plenty of time to get my registration done before the Democratic primary occurs. As I live in Australia I asked for an away vote to allow my voting participation.

  40. Yet, according to the US, Ukraine is one of the most corrupt countries in the world and other countries look to the US as a shining light of democracy. What a joke!

  41. The US has an alternate definition of a Democracy. Removing voting rights, the Electoral College and NOW THIS; Let foreign powers meddle in the election process?

  42. This is the same stuff we hear out of the Congo and eastern European countries.
    Perhaps it's time the United Nations steps in and straightens this mess out!

  43. The American people is hit to your lies Mitch McConnell on national TV even going to the White House the american people is hit to your lies Mitch McConnell on national TV even going to the White House and they offered Donald Trump to bring his lawyers attorney his cancel his Witnesses and his facts and Donald Trump denied both time for the impeachment hearings and they even offered him to come and testify at the impeachment hearings to bring his attorneys his lawyers his Council and his facts and Donald Trump said no again so why was Mitch McConnell and those Republicans on the committee and in the center get up there and lie to them are Rican people when the american people saw it with their own eyes them asking him to bring his cancel his lawyer his Witnesses his transcripts his emails and all of that to testify and Donald Trump said no it's this all these Republicans know how to do the the American people is on today schemes and scams in the lying it is old they've been doing it for 3 years since he's been in office is old and outdated please tell them to stop lying when the American people heard and seen for themselves the Democrats offering Donald Trump to come and testify I bring his lawyer sees attorney his cancel his transcripts and everything so why would they and Mitch McConnell get up there and lie again and again and again to the American people when we sing with our own eyes the Democrats offer them to come and testify

  44. They show you how corrupt these Republicans is and what they would do to win they are purging the boats again in Georgia in other states we need to put it into this

  45. WOW…has anyone bothered to ask the question as to why these voters are being purged!?…Or are you’ll just going to take what Rachael Maddow spoon fed you as if there is no other possible explanation! Just a heads up…when there is a ruling in a court of law. It can’t just be based on he said she said unlike with our Congress! There has to be a law in place that’s being address. In this case it’s a law that says you have to registered within 30 days of moving. This is who is being purged. In this ruling the people that have been notified of being purged are still going to be able to vote in the Presidential primaries and while they are there voting they can register their new address! It’s really that simple. And if Wisconsin are bother by this law THEN CHANGE IT! Read for your self…Those pesky little facts just always seem to get in the way!

  46. All Republicans in office are there by will of the people. WILL OF THE PEOPLE WHO RIG THE SYSTEM DENY PEOPLE WHO DISAGREE THE RIGHT TO VOTE GERRYMANDER STATE SO 1 REPUBLICAN VOTE OVERULES THE WILL OF MANY DEMACRATIC VOTERS IN other words by LYING AND CHEATING AS THERE LORD GOD TRUMP COMMANDS

  47. Maddow never gave a reason for the the removal of these voters from the register. I would like to know the rest of the story?

  48. In real civilian day to day life when someone would say the things that trump says about people and or if anyone mocks bullies and tells others a lie about you. We as a whole go to that person face to face AND CALL THEM OUT. AND MAKE THEM APOLOGIZE. LISTEN ALL OF YOU THAT HAVE BEEN TARGETED BY TRUMP YOU NEED TO PUBLICLY GO TO HIM WITH WITNESSES AND CONFRONT HIS AIRING TO MILLIONS OF PEOPLE HIS HATEFUL WORDS ABOUT YOU. STAND UP DONT BE A COWARD. GET UP GET GOING GO SEE HIM FACE TO FACE😡 GO SEE HIM AS A GROUP JUST HET IT DONE.

  49. Why give the American people the right to vote when at any time someone can Purge your rights to vote. How is this even a real thing in the land of free democracy. How can a judge unregistered registered voters and how is it that lawful?

  50. IT's GOOD TO SEE THE PEOPLE OF THE LEFT FINELY WAKING UP!! THE INBRED COMMIES HAVE BEEN STEALING ELECTION's FOR MANY MANY YEAR's THAT's WHY EVEN THOUGH THE LEFT HAS 75% OF THE VOTER's THE RIGHT WING COMMIE's!! HAVE 80% OF THE POWER YET NOT A WORD FROM THE LEADER's!!!!!!!

  51. IT's GOOD TO SEE THE LEFT IS FINELY STARTING TO WAKE UP!! THE RIGHT WING COMMIES HAVE BEEN STEALING ELECTION's FOR MANY MANY YEAR's THE LEFT HAS 75% OF THE VOTER's BUT THE COMMIES ON THE RIGHT HAVE 80% OF THE POWER!!!!!

  52. If people don't live now where they registered, then the registration is invalid. Voters should be registered at their current address. The reason the voter rolls are cleaned up in college areas is because students move when they leave school. There is nothing sinister or illegal about having accurate voter rolls. When people die they should be removed also. People die every day. This is good to cut down on voter fraud.

  53. American Democracy!, you guys invaded every country for so long that the invasion came to your own home. Great job for ruining that great country of yours and what your fathers left for you.

  54. “We the people are the rightful masters of both Congress and the courts, not to overthrow the Constitution but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution.”
    ― Abraham Lincoln

  55. “We the people are the rightful masters of both Congress and the courts, not to overthrow the Constitution but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution.” Abraham Lincoln

  56. The republicans have to cheat because they are running out of voters. That's why they don't want more immigrants coming from Mexico and points south because if they become citizens or as their children born here grow up, they tend to vote democratic. I'm so sick of the republicans F-ing with our elections in one way or another. If you vote for them beware they are not for you unless you have piles of money.
