Despite the leftist narrative, a recent poll has revealed that there are more people from more colorful ethnicities that are in support of requiring voter I.D. than white people, according to The Western Journal.
80% of people that took part in the poll revealed that they support the requirement.
84% of respondents were “Hispanic, black, Asian or other.”
“In general, do you support or oppose requiring voters to show a photo I.D. in order to vote?”
Monmouth poll: In general, do you support or oppose requiring voters to show a photo I.D. in order to vote?
Overall, 80% support it.

“Parts of our country are backsliding into the days of Jim Crow, passing laws that harken back to the era of poll taxes, when black people were made to guess how many beans, how many jelly beans, in a jar or count the number of bubbles in a bar of soap before they could cast their ballot,” Joe Biden stated back in April.
“[A] through-line means that just because there’s not another Tulsa massacre doesn’t mean the efforts are not equally unholy and un-American, those efforts that we’ve seen recently,” Biden said.
The party of Trump is intensifying its efforts to strip people of color of their rights to vote, says @chriscuomo. “The boldest attempt, since the era of Jim Crow.” https://t.co/u4NbHHjwbH pic.twitter.com/jM5VAw7t2s

“To say that black people cannot get an ID is an insult.”
“We’re as smart, as tenacious, as desirous of independence as anybody else.”
“If anyone says that, who says that’s not the truth, is again, just pure racist.”
From The Western Journal:
Monmouth found that 84 percent of respondents who were “Hispanic, black, Asian or other” races besides white supported requiring photo ID. Only 13 percent of respondents in that category opposed the requirement.
That support was stronger than that of white respondents, of whom 77 percent said they supported the requirement and 21 percent said they opposed it.
Monmouth also divided the results based on income, which is another metric some leftists use to suggest that photo ID requirements could “disenfranchise” certain voters.
Of respondents who made less than $50,000 a year, 81 percent supported the requirement, and only 17 percent opposed it. Meanwhile, 76 percent of respondents who made $100,000 or more per year supported the requirement, and 21 percent opposed it.
NBC reporter Sahil Kapur summarized these surprising findings in a tweet Monday.
The results fly directly in the face of the leftist narrative that requiring photo ID is somehow racist and unfair to minorities. That narrative has been the prevailing argument for Democrats who opposed new voting laws in states like Georgia.
