The Patriot Post® · Vast Majority of Americans Favor Voter ID

By Thomas Gallatin ·

A recent poll conducted on voters across the nation found that a whopping 77% agreed that one should show “a valid form of state or federally issued photo identification to prove U.S. citizenship” in order to cast a vote. Only 19% of the voters surveyed rejected the voter ID requirements. Perhaps most remarkably, the majority of voters across both major parties and independents agreed with voter ID requirements: 95% of Republicans, 76% of independents, and even 60% of Democrats. Someone get Nancy Pelosi on the line.

“In addition, the survey also found that 81 percent of Republicans are extremely or very concerned about voter fraud, including 46 percent extremely or very concerned about voter suppression,” Breitbart reports. “Only 39 percent of Democrats were extremely or very concerned about voter fraud and 78 percent were extremely or very concerned about voter suppression.”

Indeed, where the two major parties find significant disagreement is regarding the problem of voter fraud. Fox News noted, "Voter fraud is one of the top concerns among Republicans — and comes in dead last among Democrats.“ Gee, it’s almost as if the Left has politicized expressing concern over voter fraud into a taboo subject that could get one booted off social media. Maybe we should substitute "Russian collusion” and see where Democrats land.

As for the issues, the top concerns voters have are the economy (78%), gun laws (74%), and healthcare (73%). So far at least, it would seem that the Democrats’ nonsensical arguments against voter ID laws have made little headway with the American public.
