RACE-BAITERS HARDEST HIT: 80 percent of Americans back Voter ID

Fascinating tidbit relayed by The Washington Examiner's Paul Bedard.

Despite Democratic charges that conservative states and politicians are engaging in discrimination by demanding that voters show identification, more than three-quarters of likely voters believe photo ID laws are needed.

A new Rasmussen Reports poll out Wednesday found support for photo ID laws at 76 percent, nearly exactly the 78 percent support registered in 2006 when the latest movement to scrap the laws kicked off.

...President Obama and several top Democrats have accused Republicans of attempting to keep minorities from the polls with the photo requirement, but even their own party faithful don't agree.

Rasmussen found that 58 percent of Democrats believe a photo ID must be shown before voting.

... 92 percent of Republicans and 78 percent of voters not affiliated with either major party support photo ID rules.

You know what you call a lying sack of fecal matter who says demanding voter ID to protect the integrity of the ballot box is "racist"?

That's a rhetorical question. You already know the answer.
