Because we’ve seen these results in the polls before:
Seven in 10 registered voters are in favor of identification laws in order to root out fraud at the ballot box, according to a Fox News poll released this week.
The survey found majority support in every major demographic, including black voters and Democrats.
…and we’re going to keep seeing them. The Fox poll didn’t cross-tab for white liberals – probably not enough for a representative sample – but it wouldn’t surprise me if they’re the only group that would actually have majority opposition to voter ID laws. The brutal truth of it is that most people find it perfectly rational to require a photo ID to vote, given that we pretty much need a photo ID to do everything else in this country. That the Left is so adamantly embracing the fringe position that this one thing be not subject to ID checks… suggests to me that there are indeed shenanigans going on.
Maybe not in the federal general elections: people watch for that stuff. But are we watching the primaries as carefully? Or the local elections? Anecdotal evidence suggests that the answer is ‘No’ – and if you don’t think that people wouldn’t take advantage of that, well, I envy you your political innocence. While still hoping that it isn’t contagious, of course.
