Voter ID Laws Winning, Obama and Holder Losing
-By Warner Todd Huston
Not only are the courts across the country upholding the ballot integrity efforts of Voter ID laws–including the U.S. Supreme Court–but even majorities of nearly every section of the American public are polling in favor of voter ID requirements. This means Obama, his activist Attorney General Eric Holder, and the leftist intelligencia are losing this issue big time.
The left claims that voter ID laws are the second coming of racist Jim Crow laws. They say it is onerous for people to have to get a valid photo ID in order to vote. They say having to get a photo ID is somehow “just like” the expensive poll taxes forced on blacks between the end of the Civil War and the 1964 Civil Rights Act.
But, since photo IDs can be gotten for less than $10–and in many cases, free of charge–in every state in the union, this claim of left-wing liars is hard to make Americans believe. And the polls show it.
But the courts are agreeing.
As Noah Rothman noted on Wednesday, The Wall Street Journal’s Jason Rile totally devastated the left’s claims that voter ID laws are a bad thing and that the law would agree with their skewered views.
Recently Obama and his lawless cohorts got another defeat in the courts when the Wisconsin Supreme Court upheld Governor Scott Walker’s 2011 voter ID law.
But even more devastating to the left’s hope to eliminate voter ID is the fact that Americans support the law. in nearly every sector and every demographic, voter I laws gets a majority.
As a recent piece at The Hill notes, polling shows big support for voter ID.
The survey found majorities of every demographic support the law. Ninety-one percent of Republicans offer support, and 66 percent of independents feel the same.
Fifty-five percent of Democrats support the laws, while 43 percent oppose them.
Opposition to the laws is highest among black respondents, but even there a bare majority, 51 percent, support them. Forty-six percent of African Americans oppose the laws.
Obviously, Americans understand that this whole hew and cry over voter ID laws is nothing but left-wing fearmongering and pure politics, not about anyone’s rights. And if this is the way Americans really think, the left really has lost this battle. They just don’t know it yet.
This is particularly good news for such groups as True The Vote.
