States with automatic voter registration systems (18 + DC) keep registering inedible voters on a daily basis, or so it seems. They call it an “accident” or a "glitch.” Last year Illinois registered 570 individuals—foreign nationals applying for drivers licenses—to vote. These 570 people even checked “no” on the citizen box. Now Illinois has admitted another problem—it’s registering 16 year old new drivers to vote. We suggest it might want to add an “I’m just a kid box.” Or event better, stop connecting getting an ID with getting to vote.
“Scientific poll” is often an oxymoron for a biased discipline, but trends matter. When a recent Rasmussen poll asked “are American elections fair,” 50% of respondents said yes, down from 57% in 2012. Currently, 72% of Republicans and independents think elections are fair, but only 32% of Democrats. Conclusion? The endless barrage of misinformation by liberals that “there is no voter fraud except when conservatives suppress the vote” is, sadly, having an impact on Democrat voters.
We always find it instructive to read what the pro-vote corruption liberal cohort is thinking and what they see as the best path to fighting the integrity of the vote (i.e. negating yours.) In this article from a left-leaning news site, the title alone shows their hand. Democrats are working hard to persuade American voters that redistricting is an evil plot to steal votes rather than a Constitutional provision and a requirement for states to ensure proper Congressional apportionment. Even more telling, former President Obama and former AG Eric Holder have teamed up on an effort to fight fictional Republican “voter suppression.” As noted in this article, their new project is called “All on the Line.” Any questions?
Joe Biden this weekend revealed that he is eyeing failed Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams as a potential 2020 running mate. The former vice president also promoted the persistent lie that Abrams would be the governor of Georgia right now were it not for a far-reaching conspiracy of voter suppression. Read the article at the Washington Examiner.
