Majority of voters — including black voters — say voter ID laws are not discriminatory

Sixty-two percent of likely American voters, including a majority of Black voters, do not believe requiring photo ID to voter is discriminatory, according to a Rasmussen Reports survey released on Tuesday.

Democrats have argued Georgia’s recent voting reform bill that requires voter to show proof of a photo ID are a form of suppression. However, the left’s arguments do not represent the majority of voters, regardless of party affiliation or ethnic background.

“Do laws requiring photo identification at the polls discriminate against some voters?” the survey, taken April 11-12 among 1,000 likely U.S. voters, asked.

Nearly two-thirds of all respondents (62 percent) said no, 29 percent said yes, and nine percent indicated they remain unsure. Fifty-nine percent of Black voters agreed that requiring photo ID at the polls is not discriminatory, and 58 percent of those who did not identify as either black or white agreed.

Republicans were more likely than Democrats to agree. Seventy-nine percent of Republicans say voter ID is not discriminatory, compared to 46 percent of Democrats who disagreed.

Surprisingly, concerns regarding election fraud remain high. “A majority (51%) of voters believe it is likely that cheating affected the outcome of the 2020 presidential election, including 35% who say it’s Very Likely cheating affected the election.”

In addition to the controversy surrounding Georgia’s voting reform measure, the House recently passed H.R. 1, called the For the People Act, along party lines. The legislation seeks to nationalize elections, removing the ability of states to choose their own election measures.

Several states have legislation regarding voting reform in development, making the issue even more controversial as the power struggle between state and federal levels continue.

The full survey is available here.

If the clown show in congress wants a barbed wire fence and going through a metal detector AND show an ID to get in, that ID should be a minimum requirement to vote. I’d be happier if they also had to have a fingerprint taken because they’d all be hooked up to a national database. No print on file?? No voting.

If only they really were DUMB!!! Unfortunately they are thoroughly corrupt and sly as foxes. They have no shame and that’s why they lie, lie and lie again! They are really COMMUNISTS. If they told the truth you wouldn’t have anyone vote for them.

I AGREE with both of the above!
Our “so called” most recent Presidential Election was so Obviously distorted by Vote Fraud, that it should have been nullified. WHY NOT ?????
Now we have a imitation POTUS, whose strings are pulled by Soros, via OBUMA, who now has his BADLY WANTED Third Term! So VERY Disheartening for the U S of A. A Travesty !!!

Voter identity which “must” include proof of U.S. Citizenship prevents non-citizens from voting as legal citizens, stops mentally deranged criminal traitors from “voting for” deceased citizens, citizens in comas’ and/or in-eligible non-existent humans, pets, plants or vehicles, and rejects votes from legal citizens who knowingly simultaneously vote in multiple locations and jurisdictions in the same election. We must ensure that there are serious and non-reversible consequences for those (citizens and/or non-citizens) who engage in fraudulent, treasonous, illegal or unconstitutional voting activities, and long prison sentences in Federal Prisons or one way trips to Guantanamo Bay where they can kick back with like minded misfits and terrorists and actually work for their room and board and freedom to prey to God for their salvation. Can Corporate CEO’s understand or relate to these words. Unfortunately no! Let’s get a copy of the evolving list of the Companies and CEO’s and make sure that each registered legal voter gets a copy for review before the next election. God Please Bless & Protect America!

The US Supreme Court in a case back in the 1990’s involving IN held that requiring some form of State approved ID in order to vote does not violate the Voting Rights Act as Amended. The Constitution of the United States gives each state the power and authority to set the procedures for voting within their respective states, therefor HR1 is totally un Constitutional.

Voter ID laws absolutely are discriminatory, they weed out ilegal voters,just like they should!

John Stuczynski (@guest_1210274)

Great comments above. You need ID for so many things that it is impossible to name them all. Minor tings like buying liquor, getting a drivers license, going on a plane trip (yet Delta and American airlines are against the Georgia election law requiring ID to vote but just try to get on one of their planes and see how far you get). All the corporations against the Georgia law probably have not read the law. So many more states have laws more restrictive that that of Georgia but nothing is said about those states, including New York and the presidents home state of Delaware. But I guess buying a bottle of booze is more important than voting.

According to Democrat’s everything is Racist and discrimination!!! If ID’S are discriminatory then we DON’T need a Driver’s license or any form of ID!!! The Democrat’s have lost their minds!!!!!!!

The “leaders” of the minorities say it is too difficult for them to obtain an ID. If they have a driver’s license, how did they get the license if they did not have an ID?

If voter IDs are discriminatory or voter suppression then needing ID and background checks for certain jobs, buying a gun, entering the capital building are also discriminatory and suppressive.

How do they buy beer, wine, ciggs, board an airplane, train, go to school, join the Military, see a Dr to have poison nano tech warfare pumped in to kill their immune system and thousands of other things Id’s are used for ? So tell me Demoncraps, How is it you ONLY WANT it to be racist and illegal to have to show an Id to Vote for the person to hold the most Powerful job in the World. You fricken DEMONCRAPTIC people make a Sea Slug look like a fricken GENIUS.

Discriminatory is a Democrat word for saying we don’t want people to have to show their IDs. We might lose voters if they’re dead or not American Citizens. Heavens to mercy! How horrible for the radical left.

“Surprisingly, concerns regarding election fraud remain high” Surprisingly? Pray tell – what do you find surprising about that? What’s surprising is that there’s anyone who isn’t concerned about it – or highly suspect the probity of anyone who doesn’t favor an identification requirement.

Didn’t the dems think blacks would want the ID too? Keep things fair. That BS about it’s a problem for minorities is propaganda and you know who started it. Btw, we Native Americans want the ID too. I know you just want to give the vote to your darling illegals. Look at the headaches they are giving you.
