A majority of likely voters told a Rasmussen survey “it’s more important to prevent cheating in elections than to make it easier to vote,” while only 29 percent believe requiring Voter ID discriminates against some voters.
This follows by a week an earlier survey that found “75% of Likely U.S. Voters say requiring voters to show photo identification such as a driver’s license before being allowed to vote is necessary to “a fair and secure election process.” Nineteen percent (19%) disagree. This followed the eruption of political tempers surrounding the move of the All Star Game by Major League Baseball from Atlanta to Denver.
This time around, 62 percent of voters say Voter ID laws do not discriminate.
“A majority (51%) of voters believe it is likely that cheating affected the outcome of the 2020 presidential election, including 35% who say it’s Very Likely cheating affected the election,” Rasmussen reported.
Breaking it down by party affiliation, 74 percent of Republicans think it is likely cheating affected the 2020 presidential election, along with 51 percent of Independents. Only 30 percent of Democrats think so.
The survey revealed that 60 percent of likely voters say it is more important to prevent cheating while 37 percent say it is more important to make voting easier. This pattern continues as the survey breaks down responses by race. According to Rasmussen, “Majorities of all racial groups – 59% of whites, 56% of Blacks and 63% of other minority voters – say it is more important to make sure there is no cheating in elections than to make it easier to vote.
“Likewise,” Rasmussen continued, “majorities of all racial groups – 64% of whites, 59% of Blacks and 58% of other minority voters – reject the claim that voter ID laws discriminate against some voters.”
Ever since November, Rasmussen has been looking at voting, and days after the election, reported that, “Forty-seven percent (47%) say it’s likely that Democrats stole votes or destroyed pro-Trump ballots in several states to ensure that Biden would win, but 50% disagree. This includes 36% who say it’s Very Likely and 41% who consider it Not At All Likely.”
There is no small irony in the debate about Voter ID. Photo identification is required to purchase firearms, the possession of which is protected by the Second Amendment.
