Most Americans favor strong voter identification electoral laws. This is according to a Rasmussen Reports survey conducted between April 11th and 12th, 2021. 62 % of those asked, to be exact, stated that laws requiring voter identification are not discriminatory.

So concerned is the American electorate about the importance of a pristine free and fair election system, that they state clearly that it is more important to prevent cheating in elections, then it is to facilitate the act of voting. This popular affirmation is by a margin of more than two to one.

The cited poll addressed two issues. One was the primacy that American society gave to the integrity of the election system over concerns of accommodating access. The other was whether fraud may have been committed in the 2020 presidential election. An undisputed majority of all the voters from all political parties, 51 % to be exact, believe that it is quite likely that the 2020 presidential election was impacted by cheating.

More than two thirds support tougher lwas

The survey found that with Republicans, that figure is even higher at 74 %. Even among Democrats, it is astounding that 30 % of those in the party once of Andrew Jackson and today of Barack Obama, feel that cheating affected the outcome of the elections.

In this Rasmussen poll, there were four questions posed. They were very straightforward and left little room for any misunderstanding. The first addressed the issue of whether it was too easy or too hard to vote in the United States today. The second question was fundamental. It asked of the participants what was more important to them, making it easier for people to vote or making sure that there was no cheating in elections?

The third question focused on the false claims of “voter suppression” and fraudulent “racist” labels the left is making. It asked if laws that require a photo identification at the polls are discriminatory against some voters. The last one was an equally seminal question. It dealt with the legitimacy of the past election. “How likely”, it read, “is it that cheating affected the outcome of the 2020 presidential election”.

The main takeaways from this most important reading of American society on the issue of election integrity are its prioritization of fair and free elections over lofty, anarchic voting typologies. No, Americans do not agree with the lie that requiring someone to present a photo identification, somehow is discriminatory any individual or group.

Another prominent observation is that a clear majority of Americans believe that fraud took place in the 2020 presidential election. Thus, there is broad support for the requirement of a photo identification verification mechanism, both, to vote physically at the polls and to request absentee and/or mail-in ballots.

Georgia’s new voter integrity electoral law, SB 202, is being scorched by the left these days. This onslaught is coming from the Democratic Party, the Biden Administration, mass media, Big Tech, Hollywood, and political commercialism. This is a travesty on the truth, something that postmodernism and cultural Marxism care extraordinarily little about. Georgia’s new election clean-up law is quite liberal. More so than many blue states. It expands early voting and allocates secure drop off boxes in each of the Peach State’s 159 counties.

Absentee voting is allowed without the requisite of there being a valid excuse. Voter identification is required for soliciting absentee ballot. What is it than that has thrown the left and their minions into a nuclear war against the people of Georgia, and subsequently, America?

The evident problem that American leftism has with voter integrity electrical laws, such as the one recently enacted in Georgia and pending in a host of other states, is easy to decipher. After all, anyone intellectually honest person that took the time to read and understand the law before excoriating it, would find there is no basis for the critique.

Except, maybe that is too liberal and lax. After all states such as Delaware, New York, Connecticut, Colorado, and a wide range of other states have far stricter mail-in vote and early voting restrictions. The issue with Georgia case, which is devoid of any discriminatory justification, claims of racism or other callous fallacies, is their requirement of voter identification. Why would that be so?

The answer is clear. This is evidenced by the second distinguishable point in the Rasmussen poll. Americans are not incorrect in their assumption that the 2020 presidential election was not free and fair. The greater concern of American society over the importance of preventing cheating in an election over making it easier and more welcoming for all and anyone vote, clearly tells us that the general populous in the United States embraces the notion that Biden is in the White House because of electoral chicanery. This is the basis for the de facto embargo against Georgia. The left does not want to lose its ability to cheat in future elections. 

In addition to keeping open mechanisms to potentially steal elections, something that the totally common sensical requirement of photo identification addresses, there is another reason for the ballistic reaction of the Democrats and their radical extensions. HR 1, the left’s intent to deconstruct the Founding Fathers’ historical electoral model, would nationalize America’s election system and make it permanently easy to repeat the gross irregularities of the 2020 fiasco that landed them the Executive branch.

The loopholes that led to this orgy of power gluttony for the left, directly because of the defective election system in place in 2020, must be resolved. This is the real will of the American people.
