Looks like the vote fraud deniers and those opposed to common sense voter ID are headed for a big loss in the state election being held in Mississippi today. Initiative 27 would amend the Mississippi constitution to require a person to submit government-issued photo identification in order to vote. On November 6, Public Policy Polling (a Democratic polling company) released a poll of 796 likely voters that shows that 64% were in favor of the amendment; only 29% are opposed and 7% are undecided. So unless something very unexpected happens today, Mississippi will have a photo ID law in place in the 2012 election approved by an overwhelmingly majority of Mississippians – unless the Holder Justice Department sues to stop it.
