Yesterday, the Washington Post released a poll which found that 74% of American adults support the idea that voters should show a photo ID prior to voting. Keep in mind, the Post tried to game the results by framing the question as to whether you would support the requirement of an "official, government-issued" ID to vote. The intent of that questioning was to make the requirement seem like some special, extraordinary measure that would make voting harder.
The American public isn't buying it.
The left has hitched its wagon to a number of rapidly falling stars. Voter ID requirements is just the most rapidly falling one.

Holy Diva, do even know who reads the Washington compost?
It sure is hell ain't the John Birch Society.
Do you realise how far out of the mainstream you and the other lefty on this board are?
where do I start?
Did you only read what I wrote? I think voter ID laws are fine. Each state can do whatever it thinks best. I just think that changing laws to make voting easier for one group and harder for another is kinda fukced up.
You didn't look at the entire poll, I imagine you didn't click past teh Breitbart page, but the 4th question deals with voter suppression, and gives almost the exact same % (73)
here is the poll you never clicked on: (It literally took me 4 clicks)
I don't have much against voter ID in principle. What I do have a problem with is the rush to implement the laws before November. Seems pretty obvious what the intention is there. Given that voter fraud is a marginal problem, at best, it seems rational to me to defer implementation to 2016 to allow ample time for citizens to be notified of legal changes and secure the requisite identifications.
