Are restrictive voting laws really likely to significantly affect the outcome of the Midterms?

I look at this map and don't see a big problem with those voter suppression laws. It's mostly red states that would hardly be flipped by the Democrats anyway (besides, it's midterms so the sitting party will likely lose seats). Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, North Carolina didn't enact any new laws. Florida is the exception, but even though it's purplish, at the end of the day they vote Republican. Am I overlooking something? I'm not a Republican party supporter, but it seems to me, so far, that the Democrats just kind of seek a peg on which to hang their incipient defeat ("It's not because people didn't want to vote for us, they just couldn't!"). I realize that there are blue districts even in Alabama (or rather, one district), but are those laws likely to affect the bigger picture?
