Early votes for Hillary triggering 'buyers remorse'

Hillary worried bust pointingA conservative activist maintains that the decision by FBI Director James Comey to restart the investigation into Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server during the first term of the Obama administration as secretary of state illustrates the folly of early voting in the presidential election.  

In the wake of last Friday's bombshell announcement by Comey, conservative and Republican pundits have been hopeful that the director’s decision will be devastating to Clinton at the polls next week.

However, analysts point out that a potential surge for Trump on Tuesday must be tempered by the fact that reportedly up to 40-percent of voters have done so early, and their decisions were not made with the benefit of the new developments in the Clinton email scandal.

American Civil Rights Union Senior Fellow Robert Knight is a Senior Fellow at the American Civil Rights Union, who also serves as a columnist for onenewsnow.com, says that the Comey announcement – which many believe could still serve as the “October Surprise” – provides testimony against the use of early voting.

"I think – above all – this shows the folly of early voting,” Knight expressed. “There's no reason to extend elections weeks before the actual Election Day. This has been a reform that's supposed to allow more people to vote, but what it does is create grounds for vote fraud."

He maintains that casting early ballots has most likely also caused some early voters to have buyer's remorse.

"[Early voting sets up voters for regret] because a lot comes out in the last month of an election,” Knight concludes. “And I'm thinking of all the people who have voted for either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump and then they're very surprised at some new story that shocked them, and they wish they had their vote back. So there's probably a lot of buyer's remorse going on right now."
