More than a quarter of Alabama residents are struggling to pay their water bill, which is an average of just $32.09 a month.

Surprising article that the black vote in AL didn’t change much from previous elections.

But the white vote made a huge shift.

Black support for dems about the same. Black percent of vote about the same. But white support for dems major shift.

10% of republicans supported dems in 2008
20% …".-----------------------------------.in 2012
30% …" ----------------------------------…in 2017

There will be more analysis of the data.

My wild guess is that possibly women have gotten tired of being ruled by republicans

What actually happened in Alabama?
