Poll shows people aren't buying Democrats' voter-suppression narrative

Democrats have spent years now fearmongering about voter suppression. People aren’t buying it.

According to a Morning Consult poll, 44% of adults believe that current voting laws “are not strict enough to prevent votes from being case illegally.” Only 33% think that current voting laws “make it too difficult for eligible citizens to vote.” Independent voters believe, 35%-29%, that it is too easy to vote rather than too difficult. Hispanics are evenly split on the question, and 30% of black voters believe that voting laws are too permissive.

Obviously, that leaves 23% of respondents undecided. But Democrats are failing to nudge them in their direction in spite of a full-throated embrace of the narrative about voter suppression and a huge assist from the media. That indicates that their hysteria is accomplishing little.

The hysteria has been especially prominent going back to when Stacey Abrams lost the 2018 race for governor in Georgia. Abrams and other Democrats insisted up and down that the election was stolen from her, based in large part on their narrative of voter suppression. They claim that benign, commonsense policies as requiring photo ID to vote and purging voter rolls of inactive voters and dead people are examples of voter suppression.

That has carried into this year, as Texas Democrats made a grand show of fleeing the state to try and block Republicans from passing a “voter suppression” bill. The dastardly tactics Republicans wanted to implement? Eliminating drive-thru voting and 24-hour early voting, two measures that were only put in place because of the coronavirus pandemic. Democrats pressured Major League Baseball into moving All-Star Weekend out of Atlanta over a similar law in Georgia.

Democrats have spent years frantically warning about voter suppression whenever they lose elections or legislative fights over voting bills. In fact, scaring people about voter suppression is part of their strategy for getting out the vote.

But for all their trouble, more people still think that it is too easy to vote rather than too difficult. It’s a promising sign that should encourage Republicans looking to pass more election security bills, such as those of Texas and Georgia, to block out the hysteria.
