Poll: Overwhelming majority of Americans support photo ID laws

Everyone from professional sports executives to airline CEOs seems to be weighing in these days about how, when, and under what conditions people should be permitted to cast ballots in the states where they do business, but despite their push to sow ever-deeper political division, a new survey reveals that there is actually a surprisingly high degree of consensus on at least one key issue in this realm.

According to Breitbart, a new AP/NORC poll released late last week indicates that a large majority of Americans support the concept of requiring voters to present valid photo identification before they exercise their franchise.

The study, conducted between March 25 and March 29 involved telephone interviews of 1,166 adult respondents and had a margin of error of +/- 3/6 percentage points, and it found that a whopping 72% of all those polled indicated support for some form of voter identification as a prerequisite for casting a ballot.

Notably, the issue did not prove to be the partisan wedge it is often characterized by the media to be, as 91% of Republican respondents backed voter ID requirements, while a healthy 56% of Democrats did as well.

Voter registration issues yielded slightly less agreement between the parties, with 60% of respondents indicating their belief that the process should be automatic whenever a state identification card or driver’s license is obtained. Just 47% of Republicans signed on to that proposition, while 76% of Democrats did.

Ease of access evidenced a bit of a split as well, and while 53% of those surveyed support affording an opportunity for same-day registration at polling places, just 38% of Republicans agreed, in contrast to the 60% of Democrats who were on board.

Despite the incessant drumbeat from the left arguing that voter ID requirements disproportionately harm low-income individuals, minorities, the disabled, and the elderly, research from the National Bureau of Economic Research last year discovered that between the years of 2008 and 2016, existing laws of this nature produced “no negative effect on registration or turnout overall for any specific group defined by race, gender, age or party affiliation.”

Nevertheless, woke corporations such as Delta Airlines, and Major League Baseball (MLB) have waded into the debate recently, with the latter buckling to a threatened activist boycott by pulling its All-Star game out of Atlanta in protest of Georgia’s new election integrity law that requires voter ID for absentee ballots, legislation that President Joe Biden called “an atrocity,” according to NBC News.

As Republican Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC) aptly pointed out on Twitter over the weekend, the same MLB bigwigs who believe the presentation of a photo ID is a bridge to far when it comes to electing our nation’s leaders are also the ones who require the same kind of verification before game tickets can be claimed at Will Call, rendering their objections a touch hypocritical, to say the least.

  1. The ahole Democrats won’t listen to the people. Remember the people your SUPPOSED to be serving? If you would stop your power grad a LISTEN to the people and do WHAT they want instead of what you what then mabe we would be in a better place.

    1. Google pay 390$ reliably my last paycheck was $55000 working 10 hours out of consistently on the web. My increasingly youthful kinfolk mate has been averaging 20k all through continuous months and he works around 24 hours reliably. I can’t trust how direct it was once I attempted it out. This is my essential concern…:) For more info visit any tab on this site Thanks a lot GOOD LUCK………._ http://www.works91.com

    2. The Democratic Party are America’s fascists pursuing social control at all costs.
      If Antifa and BLM ever gets “woke” to the facts things could get better.
      Fascism (/ˈfæʃɪzəm/) is a form of authoritarian characterized by dictatorial power, forcible suppression of opposition and strong regimentation of society and of the economy.

      1. KJ. this sounds like what the democraps want right now and what they are close to obtaining. We need to vote every single one of them OUT.

    1. You need a photo ID for just about everything today and why not for VOTING??? This ought to be “MANDATORY” in every state to keep our elections “honest”!!

  2. Whenever a democrat speaks its a lie whenever a Republican speaks its truthful. Some businesses must have some rally dumb CEOS

    1. What Tom says is interesting as it was my understanding that $$$$$$$$$$ was the mark of drumpf ….. better you have another look at that thief’s history of deception and theft

  3. well they did not post first one , this is simple true census to know whom is where. then ID big time , to prove whom u are , so that bob , henry and lisa have right to , must be legal and live and vote where you are … and prove who you are to even cast a important vote , government forgets whom pays for them to have free ride , and who they work for , its simple , show ID , you can GOD BLESS AMERICA WHILE SHE IS STILL HERE

  4. I need the Madcow and Fredo channels to spin this info to see if it is really on the up and up. Being a dupe, I won’t beleeze any other channel but can comprehend what they spew.

  5. If we have no voter Id required there is no reason to vote ever again. Nothing will be fair. they figured out how to do the fraud votes and will do it again and again. We need to REQUIRE Voter ID otherwise anyone in the whole world can come here and vote. Its a waste of time to vote again unless they fix this.

    1. they will never fix it. they have all the power now. here in California the playground of the worse democratic rat politicians have rules us for 5 decades because they have all the cheating perfected. The millions of illegals and the many dead people that are voting in CA always outvote us. Very sad but I lost hope and I don’t think we can defeat them. Satan is ruling these people.

  6. So next time Delta and American Airlines wants to see a photo ID, CAN WE TELL THEM, IF WE DON’T NEED ONE TO VOTE, WE SHOULDNT NEED ONE TO FLY

  7. Anyone who does not support the Georgia voting law is either a cheater or hypocrite or just plain dishonest; Biden are you listening ………….???

    1. I agree Jim I am done with Coke. It’s water for me. Hope more people quit them to. They want to go against Georgia for voter Id Which is what every state should do. Quit voting for Democratic’s. They want to cancel us we need to cancel them.

  8. The corupt old senile biden and his controllers are trying to change the laws and let other countries able to vote in the U.S. as they lie and promise them money for voting Democrat and the dems can stay in control of goverment and rule the country as dictators like communist china.

    1. I am on the same page with you. I despise them so much I could see red. They are the most disgusting plaque ever.

  9. OUR VOTING LAWS REQUIRING PHOTO IDS IS LEGAL, AND THE SAME SYSTEM USED BY MOST DEMOCRACIES IN THE WORLD! No, convicted felons have committed crimes against society and SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO VOTE. ONLY CITIZENS ARE ALLOWED TO VOTE AND ONLY PICTURE IDS ENSURES THEY ARE CITIZENS! I live in Taiwan, I am a foreigner here. I am NOT allowed to have dual citizenship, because of AN AMERICAN LAW, YET EVERY “IMMIGRANT” TO THE US IS ALLOWED TO HAVE DUAL CITIZENSHIP! OTHER DEMOCRACIES AROUND THE WORLD HAD ELECTIONS DURING THE PANDEMIC. THESE OTHER DEMOCRACIES REQUIRED PHOTO ID, AND VOTING IN PERSON! THE “NEW” “EMERGENCY” LAWS PUT IN BY DEM CONTROLLED STATES IN MANY CASES WERE ILLEGAL, NOT MEETING LEGAL TIME LIMITS PRIOR TO THE ELECTION, NOR OBTAINING APPROVAL BY THE STATE LEGISLATURES! THERE IS NO SCIENTIFIC DATA TO SUPPORT THAT THE ONLY WAY TO VOTE SAFELY REQUIRES VOTING VIA THE MAIL! THIS WAS A SCAM BY THE DEM PARTY TO USURP THE ELECTION, AND SCOTUS WILL NOT HEAR THE CASE! THIS IS A TAKE-OVER! THE DEMS HAVE LIED, CHEATED AND STOLEN FROM THE PUBLIC AND OUR “SEPARATE” COURT SYSTEM WILL NOT ALLOW THE EVIDENCE TO BE PRESENTED, THEY SIMPLY SAY THERE IS NO EVIDENCE! BALLOTS WERE SENT VIA VOTER ROLLS THAT HAD MILLIONS OF DISQUALIFIED VOTERS LISTED, FLOODING THE MAIL WITH MILLIONS OF INVALID BALLOTS! NO ONE WILL EVER CONVINCE ME THAT THESE BALLOTS WERE NOT ILLEGALLY “HARVESTED” BY RADICAL DEMS! SET UP A BIPARTISAN COMMITTEE TO REVIEW THE VOTES SUBMITTED! IF WE JUST REMOVE THE VOTES OF DEAD PEOPLE, OR PEOPLE WHO MOVED TO OTHER STATES THE ELECTION WILL BE SHOWN TO BE FRAUDULENT!

    1. they are only the illegals and the brainwashed and brain dead liberals. Every democrat voter are evil in my eyes and I do mean every one of them.

  10. In a world where you can’t make a move without proper ID, the Left wants you to believe that you shouldn’t have to present a proper ID to vote. This after they just stole an election with no ID’d voters. You know they are up to no good! They want to make voter fraud a way of life. Voting is a badge of citizenship that has lasted for over 245 years, and now they want to junk it. No, sir!
    You can’t get a job without proper ID, can’t operate a vehicle, can’t get on an airplane, can’t get into most govt bldgs w/o ID, Fauci wants to restrict your travel w/o a covid stamp on your ID, and Bill Gates wants to microchip everybody so govt can track all your movements, to know who you are and what you are doing. So how is it that these control freaks do not want to control who votes, but they do want to control the vote counting. Fraud Alert!

  11. I live in Florida and we have to have a valid photo ID to vote. Fine by me, I like that idea very much. Every legal citizen’s vote should count.

  12. Don’t need Photo ID to STOP Drinking Coca Cola, I canceled MLB NBA NFL when they took a knee to the National Anthem and will never use Delta. any one else?

  13. The big guys do not want voter ID, because they cannot cheet! I do not care if these companys CEOS do not like the Georga law, if they want to get out because of it then go! Go to CHINA where you will be HAPPY! We Americans could give a SH t less! I do not have to buy COKE, fly DELTA or watch MLB! Could care less!

  14. Any country that does not make it mandatory to show an ID for voting is pure insanity. I have to show my ID to be able to see my doctor. every time I go the bank etc etc and so many other times that these democrats have only cheating in mind. Living in CA since 960 I am well aware of the methods the criminal democratic party employs to get their rotten democrats elected. Wake up America you are being made suckers from that disgusting party.

  15. We’ve been trying to tell you dumbbutt politicians for ages!!! Yes we want voter ID required for every voter to cast a ballot!! Now will you clean out your ears and hear us?!?! Geez

  16. When Georgia’s Gov. Kemp signed their new voter law, the Democrats went ballistic because they knew that it would prevent them from cheating. All of the liberal media and judges and anyone else that identifies with the Democrats know that the 2020 Presidential election was the worst conspiracy in the history of the USA. They keep saying that there is no proof of voter fraud but that is a total LIE. There are many proven cases of fraud and they know it.

  17. Voter ID and citizenship with signiture …… all America wants is legal elections and jail the communist crooks that are trying to destroy the constutition and our country.

  18. By any and all means we must reinstate a credibility to our election procedures. Only Donald Trump knows HOW to do this. The ‘Dummercrats’ would love to have free access to Vote-Creation-Call that can create votes ‘as the late night vote count indicades, later in the week indicates. They will cheat again if given the opportunity. They must be stp[[ed/

  19. Elections are the most important thing that happens here in the US. The results effect everyone. It should be the most honest thing that happens. Anything, voter ID or whatever it takes to insure it is honest should be done. The Governor of our state did away with voter ID in the 2020 election. No one knew why. Now we do. I hope before the next election we can get that reinstated again. We need it.

  20. Every nation that has elections in the world requires IDs. There is no evidence of voter suppression anywhere in the US and there hasn’t been for many years. This is clearly an insult to people of color everywhere. The liberals think they can insult you and guide you around by the nose to do what they want. They approve of all the illegals they are letting in our country to take your jobs and dilute your vote and make it meaningless with HR1. If you have not demanded your governor and legislators reinstate voter IDs in your state, do so now. It takes as little as a phone call or email.

  21. There is a real need for photo ID the Morons
    that are running this Country all belong on
    the FBI’s most wanted poster in every post
    office in America.!

  22. The election was fixed. For reasons I don’t understand the democrats want to destroy our great country. Of course everyone should have to show ID to vote.

  23. It’s amazing that you have to have a photo drivers
    license to drive a car but not a photo ID to vote for
    someone that can Destroy this Country just like that
    brain Biden is doing right now.!An ID would certainly
    kick that idea of illegals being able to vote.First of all
    they have no reason to be here in the first place.
    I have no intention on learning to “Hobla Espanol”
    now or ever.!

  24. Of course All Americans want voter ID…ONLY pelosi, biden, the ho, schumer and the rest of their evil anti American team don’t want voter ID…….pelosi can keep the guards at the capital forever..she can run but she can’t hide…..

  25. Impeachment is the only way to Drain The Swamp, Biden with Art 25, Harris with Art 25, pelosi anyway they could…!!!

  26. THE ONLY REASON THESE CRAZY PEOPLE ARE FIGHTING THIS SO HARD IS THAT THEY WILL NEVER BE ABLE TO STEEL ANOTHER ELECTION EVER AGAIN, THE DEM PARTY IS DONE TRYING TO MAKE SLAVES OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE !!!! I’VE LEARNED IF THE DEM’S WANT SOMETHING THE AMERICAN PEOPLE BETTER NOT WANT IT CAUSE IT WILL NOT TURN OUT ANY GOOD FOR US.

  27. Why don’t they have a poll about how many people know it was a fraudulent election? I think it will really prove something to the American people.
