For those on the political left, voter ID laws are a somewhat contentious subject. The vocal liberals insist they are an attempt to suppress the minority vote. For some reason it goes unnoticed that this implies minorities are either unable to figure out how to obtain a photo identification, or they lack the motivation (too lazy). Either way, those who believe election officials should simply take someone’s word for it who they are, are firmly out of touch with the rest of the nation regardless of political ideology or race.
A Marist/McClatchy poll recently asked Americans if they think it’s a good thing or a bad thing if election laws were changed to require photo identification in order to vote.
Requiring a photo identification in order to vote has consistently been supported by an overwhelmingly wide margin regardless of party or race. One has to wonder why the political left expends so much energy claiming this is A) racist, and B) an attempt to suppress votes?
Anyone else notice that more non-whites think requiring a photo ID to vote is a good thing, and fewer non-whites think it’s a bad thing? There goes that narrative.
