A new poll from a Michigan election-integrity group said that black Americans overwhelmingly support voter ID laws—a narrative that runs counter to what the mainstream media often reports as Democrats desperately seek to pad their election margins with illegitimate ballots.
Majority of black Americans poll in favor of voter ID. Joe Biden doesn’t care- he’s never let facts derail a screed. Just as when he said Romney would put people back in chains, his rants show not only dishonesty but also arrogant condescension to his audience.

More than thre quarters of adults support “requiring voters to show a government-issued photo identification in order to vote,” according to the new survey of Michigan voters commissioned by Americans for Citizen Voting.
Overall, support among African Americans for the ID requirements is even higher at 79%.
“A majority of African Americans in Michigan support voter ID because they understand it is the surest way to validate a voter’s identification,” said ACV president Christopher Arps, who is black. “People who look like me know how important the vote is, and we want to protect it.”
The results of the poll by ACV tally with other polls that show Americans care about election security.
A Scott Rasmussen survey found that 85% of Americans favor requiring government ID in order to vote in an election.
The issue has taken added impetus as New York City begins to implement requirements that allow non-citizens to vote, diluting the black citizens’s vote.
“They will be able to vote in primary and general elections for citywide contests like those for mayor and public advocate, as well as in local races, like those for City Council and borough presidents,” said the New York Times.
However, “The law does not allow noncitizens to vote in state or federal elections,” as yet, it noted. Such a move would assuredly face a ruling of “unconstitutional” from the US Supreme Court.
In January, the Republican Party filed a lawsuit in state court in order to stop implementation of the New York law.
The Democrats are out of touch with what black Americans actually support, said one black former election official.
“That is what we now are seeing across this country” former Ohio Secretary of State Ken Blackwell told Just the News. “People are, in fact, resisting this stupidity.”
