Democrats are nervous about their chances to hold the Senate in 2022.
There is a good reason for that.
And Chuck Schumer was shocked when he got his hands on these poll numbers.
The centerpiece of the Democrat Party’s agenda is H.R. 1/S.1, which is a massive federal power grab to make it impossible for Republicans to ever win elections again.
This legislation imposes universal vote-by-mail and ballot harvesting on all 50 states, allows illegal aliens to register to vote without facing criminal penalties, encourages 16-year-olds to register to vote, eliminates voter ID laws, and other election integrity measures.
But Democrats are making a massive mistake if they believe this legislation is popular.
Executive Director of the Honest Elections Project Jason Snead circulated a memo to Congressional leaders highlighting the results of new polling showing that 64 percent of black voters and 78 percent of Hispanic voters support voter ID laws.
The polls also debunked the Democrat Party myth that asking minority voters to show ID is racist, as 75 percent of low income voters do not believe presenting ID before voting is a “burden.”
77 percent of Americans across the board favor requiring individuals to show an ID before casting a ballot, compared to 15 percent who oppose the idea. This is a common theme across party lines, with 92 percent of Republicans, 75 percent of Independents, and 63 percent of Democrats supporting voter ID. This includes a majority of black and Hispanic voters, who back voter ID laws 64 percent to 22 percent and 78 percent to 16 percent, respectively.
Notably, a majority of voters who supported Biden in 2020 also back election ID requirements by a 38-point margin, 62 percent to 24 percent.
The survey also found that over three-quarters of low income voters “reject the notion that showing an ID is a ‘burden,’ despite frequent claims from the left.”
Democrats are now moving on to the parts of their agenda that do not enjoy popular support.
And Republicans could turn the 2022 midterm elections into a referendum on Democrat Party overreach symbolized by the attempt to rig every election in the Democrats favor by eliminating voter ID.
Republicans only need to flip one Senate seat to wrest control from the Democrats, so the Left going all in on eliminating laws to protect election integrity could be a losing proposition.
