Democrat politicians and pundits have been all-in on the position that requiring photo ID for voting is racist. The support their position is overwhelming in certain zip codes, but the vast majority of voters support photo ID for voting—even most black and other minority Democrats support voter ID (roughly 3:1).
It appears that some Democrat pols are beginning to understand that opposition to voter ID isn’t playing well with independent voter or their own base outside of Twitter. Stacy Abrams, for example, wants us to believe that she’s never been against voter ID.
OTOH, the big money comes from those few zip codes, so it’s important to please those donors, but the votes … ah, there’s the rub. While the 2020 election may have been a pilot run for the use of technology to manage electoral outcomes, it clear that the Democrats’ system still has some bugs, and appeal to actual voters may still be necessary for some time to come.
