Americans are giving the left an overdue wake-up call when it comes to voter ID. While Democrats have attempted to spin the need for voter ID as racist and an effort to suppress minority voters a new poll reveals that narrative has fallen flat. A new Rasmussen poll says 74 percent of Americans support Voter ID requirements, effectively destroying the left’s narrative.

According to Townhall:
Among the most interesting [results] is that 72% of black likely voters and 79% of those who are neither white nor black support photo voter IDs. Indeed, support among whites and blacks is virtually identical. Regarding the claim that voter IDs discriminate again, the poor and least educated show the highest levels of support: 79% of those who attended high school but didn’t graduate, and 78% of those earning less than $30,000 per year. Even a plurality of Democrats (61%), liberals (48%), those who strongly approve of Biden (54%), and those who think that it is “not at all important” support photo voter IDs (48%). The only groups that don’t support it are those who believe that preventing cheating in elections is “not very important” (23%) and those who are “unsure” of their level of education (28%).
By a wide margin, likely voters suspect the motives of those who oppose photo voter IDs, with 42% of likely voters saying that they “strongly agree” and another 18% “somewhat agree” that “opponents of requiring a photo ID to vote just want to make it easy to cheat in elections.” Only 19% strongly disagree or 10% somewhat disagree with the statement. Even voters in heavily Democratic groups are suspicious of the motives: a majority of blacks (63%), other race (61%), Democrats (50%), those earning less than $30,000 (50%), and those who attended high school but didn’t graduate (61%).
