Majority of Americans Support Voter ID Law

Despite the actions of the Department of Justice and the propaganda by liberals and the elite media, a majority of Americans support some sort of voter ID law. Attorney General Eric Holder, a liberal activist that's defended terrorists, has sued a number of states that believe showing a valid ID when voting should be the norm. The Left has cried racism, but this is their standard move. The fact remains that voter fraud is still a key pillar of the Democratic Party.
The Washington Examiner details some of the latest poll results on the issue of presenting some sort of identification when voting:
In the survey, the Washington Post asked, “In your view, should voters in the United States be required to show official, government-issued photo identification — such as a driver’s license — when they cast ballots on election day, or shouldn’t they have to do this?” Among all adults, 74 percent said voters should present ID, versus 23 percent who said they should not. Among registered voters, the numbers were 75 percent to 23 percent.
When something has the support of 75 percent of the voters, plus the approval of the Supreme Court, which by a six-to-three vote in 2008 upheld Indiana’s voter ID law, one might think the Justice Department would give up trying to stop it. So far, that’s not the case with Attorney General Holder.
The Post poll found support for voter ID extends far and wide. Seventy-six percent of men support it, as do 73 percent of women.
Eighty-eight percent of Republicans support it. Seventy-six percent of independents support it. And 60 percent of Democrats — a solid majority of the president’s party — support it.
Seventy-eight percent of white people support it. Sixty-five percent of black people support it. Sixty-four percent of Hispanics support it.
Every age group supports it by more than 70 percent.
Every income group supports it by more than 70 percent.
Every educational group supports it by more than 70 percent — except those Americans who have gone to graduate school. (They support it by 63 percent.) Among those who have a high school degree or less — according to the Justice Department, the group that might not have a government-issued ID — support is at 76 percent.
All regions of the country support it, from 68 percent in the Northeast to 77 percent in the South.
Yesterday, a Pennsylvania state judge upheld the state's voter ID law. The DOJ sued Pennsylvania just last month over the issue. While this will get appealed and go to the State Supreme Court, the judge said disenfranchisement was not immediate or inevitable based on the case presented. This supports what an overwhelming majority of Americans believe: voters should be required to present ID when entering the polls.
Voter fraud is what's going to give Democrats the election. Mitt Romney and Republicans cannot win by a handful of votes - they have to factor in the major fraud efforts by liberal criminal front groups. The obvious question is why the DOJ feels it's necessary to sue every state that tries to protect the rights of voters? The only answer is to protect the zero liability voter, which always vote Democrat.
