Rasmussen Poll: '78% Favor Proof of Citizenship Before Being Allowed to Vote'Topics: Political News and commentaries
What's this? An overwhelming percentage of likely voters favor a common sense requirement that one must prove their citizenship before being allowed to vote?
My faith in America's likely voters has now been partially restored ... such faith having taken a huge hit via the electorate having voted for having the most racially divisive president, the least qualified, and the most progressively anti-Christian president in American history - twice.
A federal judge last week upheld the right of states to require proof of citizenship before allowing someone to register to vote. Voters continue to overwhelmingly support such a requirement.More here ...
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 78% of Likely U.S. Voters believe everyone should be required to prove his or her citizenship before being allowed to register to vote. That's up from 71% a year ago. Just 19% oppose that requirement. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
Twenty-nine percent (29%) believe laws that require proof of citizenship before allowing voter registration discriminate against such voters. But more than twice as many (61%) say such laws do not discriminate, up three points from 58% who felt that way in March of last year. Ten percent (10%) are undecided.
Clearly, 19% of likely voters either are either too dumb or too liberal to understand the question, or they're so far-left and so partisan Democrat that they view illegal aliens as potential Democrat voters.
Meanwhile, lest you think even for a moment that voter fraud is not alive and well, check out this breathtaking report from a local NBC News affiliate in Florida:
As Daniel Doherty aptly notes today at Townhall, perhaps reports like this and others like it is why a federal judge ruled last week that the Federal Election Assistance Commission could not prevent Kansas and Arizona from strengthening their proof-of-citizenship requirements. In other words, the argument that Republicans are racists and bigoted for championing voter ID laws is ludicrous; most of the country supports these common sense requirements. And based on what we saw in Florida, these types of anti-fraud measures are increasingly necessary, too.
