That huge majority: 73%.
Despite his insistence that voter fraud is not a serious problem, Attorney General Eric Holder was embarrassed last week when a video surfaced of someone illegally obtaining a ballot to vote under Holder’s name in his home precinct in Washington, D.C. Most voters consider voter fraud a problem in America today and continue to overwhelmingly support laws requiring people to show photo identification before being allowed to vote.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 64% of Likely U.S. Voters rate voter fraud at least a somewhat serious problem in the United States today, and just 24% disagree. This includes 35% who consider it a Very Serious problem and seven percent (7%) who view it as Not At All Serious. Twelve percent (12%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
Every poll or survey confirms that an overwhelming majority of Americans across all demographics support voter ID. These polls confirm that heavy majorities don’t see voter ID requirements as unfair or discriminatory (because they aren’t). Yet Democrats dig in and fight voter ID anyway. They’ll demand photo ID to attend their public appearances, and fight requiring photo ID to cast a vote. Requiring photo ID is either discriminatory or it isn’t, right?
