Poll: Most Americans Like Voter IDs

73 percent think voter ID before voting is not discriminatory.

A poll released today shows most Americans favor showing an ID before voting, because they believe voter fraud is a substantial problem.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 64 percent of Likely U.S. Voters rate voter fraud at least a somewhat serious problem in the United States today, and just 24 percent disagree. This includes 35 percent who consider it a very serious problem and 7 percent who view it as not at all serious. Twelve percent are undecided, according to Rasmussen.

which has vowed to fight for a voter ID requirement after the U.S. Department of Justice struck down the state's law mandating IDs at the polls.

Opponents say voter ID Proponenets say

Earlier this month, the District of Columbia Board of Elections opened an investigation after an activist proponent of voter IDs obtained a ballot using U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder's identity. Holder and the Justice Department have blocked voter ID efforts, such as South Carolina's.

The Rasmussen survey, released Monday, was conducted April 12 to April 13 and surveyed 1,000 likely voters.

@SDR: " I appreciate the state protecting my vote... your vote has always been protected...has anyone tried to vote using your name...it's impossible if election officials do their job... corrupt election officials are the problem, if there is one. perhaps, if you were so moved, you can explain how you proceed to committee voter fraud...

Stanley lets get together and design a fingerprint voting system that can be verified nationally. Not only would it help law enforcement track criminals, but it would prevent election officials so called mistakes and or fraud. I guess you could alway drag a dead person to the booth or just their finger print to cheat if you wanted to. This attack on voters is insanity just like the entire Repubilcan policies that have caused more harm, hatred and division to this country and its people than any terrorist could of hoped for. I hope some day people in South Carolina realize the problem isn't the middle class and the worker the problem is the plutocrats invading our legistion house.

Wounded Warrior: "Is popular vote wrong?? certainly not...voterID laws discourage the popular vote... re: lets get together and design a fingerprint voting system that can be verified nationally [mimi say] a similar idea 'REAL ID Act' (a GOP idea) was enacted 2005...As of October 2009, 25 states (including SC) have approved either resolutions or binding legislation not to participate in the program... irony of irony now SC wants a voterID...had they enforced the REAL ID Act all would have a voterID... why after BO was elected did SC believe a voterID was required...what can be more painfully obvious than 'BO voter suppression' is the motivation for voterID laws...legislators have sold the popular vote to the koch boys...and thanks to the BO haters it was an easy sell...
