Poll: Majority Support Voter ID, Disagree with MLB's Georgia Boycott

Posted 8 days ago


The vast majority of U. S. likely voters believe voter ID is necessary and disagree with Major League Baseball’s (MLB) decision to pull the All-Star game and Draft from Atlanta over the state’s election integrity law, a Rasmussen Reports survey released Tuesday found.

The survey asked respondents if they believe voter ID laws are necessary to a “fair and secure election process.” The vast majority, 75 percent, said “yes,” 19 percent said “no,” and six percent said they remained unsure. A majority of both Republicans, 89 percent, and Democrats, 65 percent, believe voter ID laws are necessary for a free and fair election. Seventy-one percent of those unaffiliated with either major party agree.

The survey also asked respondents for their opinions on the left-wing boycotts of Georgia over the recently signed election law, which despite the left’s narrative, actually increases days for early voting.

The law also requires voters to show an identification to vote absentee by mail, although voters can “verify their identities with the last four digits of their social security number; a utility bill; a bank statement; a government check; a paycheck; or another government document with their name and address on it,” per Fox News, which cited Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger’s office.
