A solid majority of voters reject the idea of the federal government taking over all aspects of state elections, especially voter registration, a new survey reveals.

Paul Bedard wrote about the results from the Center for Excellence in Polling at the Foundation for Government Accountability in his Washington Secrets column.

The polling revealed that 58% want “Uncle Sam’s hands off” state registration procedures.

And even more, 67%, completely reject the suggestion that the president can use the Justice Department to sue states over registration procedures that Joe Biden doesn’t like.

Nick Stehle, of the foundation, explained, “Research from the Center for Excellence in Polling clearly shows that removing state control from the regulation of election processes such as voter registration is unpopular among a bipartisan coalition of voters.”

He suggested policymakers “should keep this in mind” when working federal legislation, like the Democrats’ controversial and likely ill-fated “For the People” elections takeover plan.

That very issue, having the federal government take over elections, is one of the assignments Biden has given to Kamala Harris, the vice president.

The poll explains its goal is to inform those who make policy what the voters think about their plans “so that they can pass legislation that best serves the interest of the people they were elected to represent.”
