New Poll Says 73% of Americans Don't Believe Voter ID Laws Discriminate

Rasmussen Reports released a new poll Monday that said 73% of Americans don't believe voter ID laws are discriminatory.

That same poll also reported that "64% of Likely U.S. Voters rate voter fraud at least a somewhat serious problem in the United States today."

Georgia is one of several states requiring voters to show government-issued photo ID before casting a ballot in elections. Since Georgia enacted its voter ID law in 2006, the number of minority voters participating in elections increased despite claims made by some that voter ID laws unfairly discriminated against people of color.
