Eye-popping number of voters say photo ID needed for election integrity

Ever since the stunningly odd results that came out of last November’s presidential election – those late-night vote dumps of ballots all for Joe Biden and more – Democrats and other leftists have assured the nation there was nothing wrong, nothing to see.

In fact, they’re so confident in the security of the election processes that were used that they have denied the need for any voter ID, anywhere.

Voters, however, are in sharp disagreement.

A new Rasmussen Reports poll shows 90% of Likely U.S. Voters think it is important to prevent cheating in elections.

And that includes 79% who say it’s Very Important.

Only 7% say it’s not a big deal at all.

Further, according to Paul Bedard’s Washington Secrets commentary, 74% of the respondents support a requirement that voters show photo ID in order to cast a ballot, what Bedard called “a blow to liberals fighting it.”

Voters simply think that’s a “reasonable” way to prevent cheating.

“And while the poll found doubts about the impact of cheating in 2020, it did suggest that voters believe politicians fighting the use of photo ID just want cheating to continue,” he reported.

It was three of five – 60% – who said they agreed that “opponents of requiring a photo ID to vote just want to make it easy to cheat in elections.” That statement found only 29% disagreeing.

“Clearly, the issue of cheating is a concern of voters in the upcoming election,” Bedard wrote.

Regarding the last election – and its suspicious circumstances that various fact-checkers all have said were perfectly ordinary – 49% agreed it was a conspiracy theory to think cheating undermined the results. Thirty-six percent didn’t have that opinion.

The survey of 1,000 U.S. Likely Voters was conducted on August 2-3, 2021 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence.

The questions included how important it is to prevent election cheating, are concerns about 2020 a conspiracy theory, is requiring photo ID reasonable and whether opponents of election integrity want to make it easier to cheat.

“The battles over the 2020 presidential election and subsequent fight between Democrats and Republicans on reforming the system have pushed the issue to the top of those Americans are now worried about,” Bedard explained.
