Rasmussen Reports published a new survey on Wednesday showing that 75 percent of Americans favor voter ID laws, including 60 percent of Democrats and 89 percent of Republicans.

The poll revealed that three out of four likely American voters believe a photo ID should be needed—such as a driver’s license—before being permitted to vote. A bulk of unaffiliated voters, 77 percent, also showed support for voter ID requirements.

Support for voter ID laws across ethnicities stayed high: 74 percent of whites, 69 percent of blacks, and 82 percent of other minorities said they were in support of requiring voter ID.

Advocacy for voter ID requirements has mostly run in the mid-to-high 70s in surveys since 2006, according to Rasmussen. This year’s 75 percent support is higher than the 67 percent in 2018 and 70 percent in 2017, but lower than the 82 percent support seen in 2010.

The survey also asked members whether they believe voter ID laws discriminate against some voters. Leftists have been demanding that voter ID laws and other voter restrictions discriminate against minorities.

According to the poll, 60 percent of Americans said that voter ID laws don’t discriminate, while 31 percent say such laws discriminate, with 10 percent saying they are not certain.

Democrats made up the most of the group concerned about minority discrimination, with 51 percent saying such claims are discriminatory.

Meanwhile, 79 percent of Republicans and 67 percent of unaffiliated voters said that demanding classification at the polls is not discriminatory.

Rasmussen Reports led the national telephone and online survey of 1,000 likely voters on March 14 and 15. The sampling error margin is 3 percentage points above or below with a 95 percent level of confidence, according to the poll.

The poll was carried as H.R. 1 passed the Democrat-controlled House and went to the Senate for hearing.

H.R. 1, which has been promoted by Democrats as the For The People Act of 2021, allows the “use of sworn written statements to meet identification requirements.” States would no longer be entitled to require ID for voting and would be obliged to accept signed statements from individuals claiming to be who they say they are, something that puts voter fraud at a higher risk than before.

Democrats have backed the bill as a significant step against voter suppression.

“Our democracy is in a state of deep disrepair,” said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) after re-introducing the bill in January. “During the 2020 election, Americans had to overcome rampant voter suppression, gerrymandering, and a torrent of special interest dark money just to exercise their right to vote.”

Hans von Spakovsky, a former Federal Election Commissioner and currently a senior fellow at the Heritage Foundation, told The Epoch Times last week that the voter suppression argument is “a ridiculous claim.”
