Solomon Smilack, 32, nonprofit operations manager "I went to college in Ohio, which should really be a swing state, but it's gone red largely because of voter-suppression efforts. I don't think it's as much of a problem here, but it still makes me very nervous. We have a growing Hispanic population here, and it's very easy to disenfranchise people. People may not be aware of their rights; misinformation can be put out. It doesn't take much to suppress voters...immigrants, minorities, or simply poor people.... In a swing state, it makes a huge difference." Bobby Medina, 25, union organizer "People are gonna come out and vote. We are going door to door and telling people what Obama is really going to do for them. They understand that it's a huge decision in 2012. Our Latino brothers and sisters and our black brothers and sisters just need to be educated.... We are more informed than ever. Minorities are the majority, and we are stronger than we've ever been." Continue to find out why more Obama supporters think his fans will show up to vote in November.
