I wonder if MarcATL agrees with the vast majority of blacks, or is he on an island by himself?This destroys the myth Democrats are pushing that Vote ID laws are too complicated for blacks, and are discriminatory.
80% of voters also support 4 key election reforms.
So, America is telling the Democrat party they are out of touch with all this claptrap about being a racist and wanting to bring back slavery if you don't support their attempt to federalize the 50 individual state election processes, as laid out in the Constitution.
Joe Biden's Jim Crow 2.0 tour collides with reality: Blacks strongly support voter IDBiden's decision to use the MLK holiday as a backdrop to push his voting bill exposed another rift: There isn't even agreement in the late civil rights leader's own family about the need for the legislation.
Four days earlier, a poll in Michigan told a different story: Three-quarters of the battleground state voters supported ballot ID requirements, with black voters expressing the highest support at 79%.
Those findings have been confirmed in national polls as well, exposing a dilemma for Democrats in Washington who are making a last-ditch effort to pass legislation gutting many state and local controls of elections in favor of federal standards.
Those standards — like banning voter IDs, imposing no excuse absentee voting and making it harder to clean outdated voter rolls — are not what the majority of Americans are seeking.
"A recent national survey found that four key election reforms are supported by more than 80% of voters," pollster Scott Rasmussen recently wrote in an article highlighting the disconnect. "These include removing people who have died or moved from voter registration lists; requiring all voters to show photo ID before casting a ballot; wanting all ballots received by Election Day; and, having all voting machines made in the United States."
In Rasmussen's latest national poll on the issue, 78% of African-American voters supported voter ID.
Such public sentiments impose a harsh reality check on Biden's argument that state voter laws amount to "Jim Crow 2.0" and are disenfranchising poor and minority voters. Most voters don't see cleaning outdated names from voter roles or requiring IDs to cast ballots as "obstacles to the ballot box" like Biden argued in Monday’s speech.
