Ted Cruz took Stacey Abrams to task today over her lies about her gubernatorial loss in 2018:
Ted Cruz essentially proved that her lies about voter turnout were wrong, that in fact Georgia had a higher percentage than the national average of blacks registering and voting in the 2018 election.
Abrams responded that this is true because Georgia is one of the largest states with a black population. But Cruz quickly hit back, pointing out that the average isn’t tied to the size of the population in the state.
Woops. I bet she’d like to have that one back.
Cruz went on to note that the average number of registrations of black Georgians in 2018 was 64.7%, higher the national average of 60.2% in an election she claimed was stolen from her. And the average number of black Georgians who turned out was 56.3%, again higher the national average of 48%.
But then, to really bring home his point, Cruz explained that out of all demographic groups voting in Georgia in 2018, blacks had the highest registration AND turnout percentage, which flies in the face of her “claiming that the election was stolen and that there was voter suppression.”
Boom! Well done Ted!
