Rasmussen reveals Democrat disconnect on Voter ID, higher taxes

Three separate Rasmussen surveys have revealed just how disconnected Capitol Hill Democrats are from their constituents when it comes to election laws and taxes, two major issues that find Joe Biden and Congressional Democrats out-of-touch.

Earlier this week, Rasmussen reported that “voters still overwhelmingly support laws requiring that voters show identification before casting a ballot” at a time the U.S. Senate is considering legislation to revamp the country’s election laws.

It stands to reason, especially among Second Amendment activists, that photo ID should be required to vote because it is required to purchase a firearm. One right is just as important as another right.

According to Rasmussen, 75 percent of likely voters “believe voters should be required to show photo identification such as a driver’s license before being allowed to vote. Only 21% are opposed to such a requirement.”

However, a majority of Democrats (51%) “say voter ID laws are discriminatory,” according to Rasmussen, but voters “reject that claim by a nearly 2-to-1 margin.” Sixty percent of survey respondents don’t believe voter ID laws are discriminatory, but 31 percent say they do.

But here’s an interesting revelation, “Majorities of whites (74%), blacks (69%) and other minorities (82%) say voters should be required to show photo identification before being allowed to vote. Voters under 40 support voter ID laws more than do older voters.”

In another survey, 64 percent of likely voters are opposed to tax increases. That’s not a good sign for Biden and Democrats who want to raise taxes. Only 22 percent of survey respondents support tax increases and 14 percent aren’t sure.

“While Democratic voters are more favorable toward tax increases than other voters, still only 33% of Democrats say they would support increasing taxes and 43% of Democrats oppose a tax increase,” Rasmussen reported. “Eighty-two percent (82%) of Republicans oppose increasing taxes, as do 70% of voters not affiliated with either major party.”

“Only 19% of Democratic voters say the current level of federal taxes is too low,” Rasmussen added, “while 34% of Democrats say taxes are too high and 38% say the level of federal taxes is about right.”

But then comes the third survey, with more bad news for Democrats.

“Fifty-one percent of American adults believe they are paying more than their fair share of taxes,” Rasmussen found.

This was a favorite subject of the Obama administration—where Biden served as vice president—that wealthy Americans need to “pay their fair share.”

According to Rasmussen, Biden is “reportedly considering” raising the corporate tax rate from 21 to 28 percent, and the income tax rate on individuals making more than $400,000 annually.

The polling firm also learned that only 27 percent of voters don’t believe they pay more than their fair share of taxes.
