The exit poll also showed that about 98 percent of black women voted for Jones, leading Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom PerezThomas Edward PerezClinton's top five vice presidential picks Government social programs: "Triumph of hope over evidence Labor's "wasteful spending and mismanagement" at Workers" Comp MORE to declare that the party's wins in Alabama and Virginia's governor contest in November were because of them. To quantify this, we compared the overall turnout in this special election to overall support for Hillary Clinton in 2016. Barkley, who was born in Alabama and attended Auburn before becoming the Number Five pick in the 1984 NBA Draft, also said this is a wake-up call for Democrats for taking "the black vote and the poor vote for granted" and that it's time to "get off their ass and start making life better for black votes and people who are poor". Black mothers are dying in childbirth at three times the rate of white mothers.

"There's a lot of single women here trying to raise children mostly on our own".

While Jones' track record likely made a difference, several people involved in the Alabama race said that the on-the-ground outreach to black voters was the deciding factor in driving up black turnout. The media will continue to herald the efforts of Black women, praising them for saving everyone. That means standing on street corners, that means black radio, church. So they were not appreciated. By doing this, it will enable them to finally exert political power and allow them to extract concession from this cynical party apparatus and a political structure that's grown so inured to the processes that dehumanize black voters, because they ultimately stand to benefit.

Trump backed Judge Roy Moore in the race, despite the multiple allegations of sexual misconduct against him.

"It's not just you supporting other people who are running for office, but we're supporting you to be able to run from office as well".

That Black voters-and Black women in particular-were decisive in this upset should not be a surprise.

But in Selma, a majority black city steeped in the history of the Civil Rights movement, many African American voters said they saw it coming. It has to be a broad recognition of the struggles that black women face every day, and a genuine attempt to help lift that burden. He probably should have just stuck to announcing his donation and then gotten out of the way so Black women could get things done.

Even more, the people saying the whites who didn't vote were apathetic about the race must not have been paying attention over the last month.

Poll workers were said to be thrown off by recently married women carrying photo IDs with names that didn't match the names on the voter rolls, or by voters who showed up with their hair cut and dyed differently than the picture on their ID. Try showing up with us instead. If you can talk about that connection in an authentic way, provide a message for where you want to take the community and spin the resources to help, that leads to a winning campaign.
