A new poll of Michigan residents, much like other polls in recent months, shows they overwhelming want their elections to be secure.

According to a report from Great Lakes Wire, the poll from Remington Research Group found that more than 75% of the respondents support a requirement to show a government-issued photo ID in order to vote.

Among blacks in Michigan, the support was higher – 79%.

The poll was commissioned by Americans for Citizen Voting, and interviewed 1,011 likely 2022 General Election Michigan voters.

“A majority of African Americans in Michigan support voter ID because they understand it is the surest way to validate a voter’s identification,” explained Christopher Arps, president of Americans for Citizen Voting.

The results also indicated strong support for the proposed Secure MI Vote ballot initiative, which includes multiple security provisions.

“The people of Michigan have a right to decide their own election rules and processes. Unfortunately, just today the U.S. House of Representatives passed so-called voting rights legislation that would block the clear will of Michigan voters and those in other states. And the Senate threatens to change its rules to pass this slap at voters,” Arps warned.

The poll, with a margin of error of 3 percentage points, was conducted Jan. 8-9.

The report revealed, “This comes as the Michigan state legislature passed measures that Republicans say would have improved the integrity of elections in the Mitten State in late 2021. Measures included would have increased identification requirements for both in-person and absentee voting, though it was ultimately vetoed by Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, the Detroit News reports.”

Whitmer has claimed there isn’t a problem with the election process, but Republican voters in the state, following the state’s issues in 2020, proposed the plans to tighten requirements.

The state constitution allows GOP organizers to bypass Whitmer by collecting 340,047 signatures, which sends an initiative directly to the legislature.

WND has reported multiple states are trying to address the clear evidence of problems in the 2020 race.

For example, a poll after the election showed more than one-third of voters who chose Joe Biden were not aware of the evidence linking the former vice president to corrupt financial dealings with China through his son Hunter.

Had they known, according to the survey commissioned bv the Media Research Center, President Trump would have won at least 289 Electoral College votes.

The survey found that 13% voters of the voters who said they were unaware of the scandals would not have voted for Biden had they been made aware.

That amounted to 4.6% of Biden’s total votes.

Then there was an investigative report from Politico that revealed a federal prosecutor was investigating alleged crimes by Hunter Biden – but he suppressed information about the case until after Joe Biden was elected.

And research revealed that Mark Zuckerberg handed over a total of $419.5 million to the Center for Technology and Civil Life and the Center for Election Innovation and Research leading up to the 2020 presidential election, and the two groups used it to buy Democrat votes.


The warning was from William Doyle, a principal researcher at Caesar Rodney Election Research Institute in Irving, Texas, who explained his findings in a report at The Federalist.

He said Zuckerberg’s money was used “to turn out likely Democratic voters.”

Not through traditional political spending, but through a “targeted, private takeover of government election operations by nominally non-partisan – but demonstrably ideological – non-profit organizations.”

There already had been concerns expressed about Zuckerberg’s millions of dollars that were given to various mostly leftist elections officials across the country during the 2020 presidential race.

At least one state already is formally reviewing what happened, and how it impacted the election.

Doyle explained analysis work done by his team shows Zuckerbucks, as they have been derogatorily labeled by some, “significantly increased Joe Biden’s vote margin in key swing states.”

“This unprecedented merger of public election offices with private resources and personnel is an acute threat to our republic, and should be the focus of electoral reform efforts moving forward,” he warned.

“The 2020 election wasn’t stolen — it was likely bought by one of the world’s wealthiest and most powerful men pouring his money through legal loopholes.”
