(PatriotWise.com)- According to an AP-NORC poll released on Friday, a majority of Americans – an overwhelming majority, actually – favor new voter ID laws that require voters to present a photo ID when casting a ballot.
It stands in stark contrast to proposals from Congressional Democrats to do away with voter ID laws and implement same-day registration nationwide under the so-called “For the People” Act.
Interestingly, the poll showed that Americans on both sides of the political aisle favor strengthening election laws, with some 72% of Americans polled supporting voter ID laws.
Is anybody surprised that Americans support strengthening election laws after the 2020 disaster?
Out of the Republicans queried, some 91% said that they support voter ID, and even 56% of Democrats said the same thing.
Does somebody want to tell Nancy Pelosi?
The poll found that Americans have changed their mind about voter fraud since the November election. The accompanying report described how in October last year, “more Americans were concerned about a lack of access to the polls for eligible voters than they were about voter fraud.”
However, concern about voter fraud “has rebounded again.”
Maybe that has something to do with the fraud proven to have existed in the last election, including tens of thousands of ballots cast with false addresses, according to statistician Matt Braynard of the Voter Integrity Project.
The poll showed that 46% of Americans say that people eligible to vote “not being allowed to vote” is a “major problem,” while 40% of Americans think that people vote who are not eligible to vote is a “major problem.”
It also found that Democrats are more likely to be concerned about eligible people not voting, and Republicans are more concerned about non-eligible people voting.
Georgia and Texas are two states currently working on legislative measures to prevent what happened in the 2020 election from happening again. Under the new Georgia election law, voters will be required to prove their identity before casting a ballot, which has for some reason been deemed controversial.
Georgia Governor Brian Kemp was forced to defend the new law after major American corporations came out against it, including Microsoft, Coca Cola, and Delta Airlines.
It hardly seems a surprise that the corporations aren’t on the same side as the American people…
