    If you can't find a way to get ID of any kind, how do you apply for foodstamps, navigate a trip to the hospital, open a bank account, cash a check, drive a vehicle or do any of the other hundreds of things you do that require ID? I think the disenfranchisement idea is just a smokescreen for the dems to sneak in people that will help put them over the top. I don't think they would know the truth if it french kissed them in front of everyone in NC.

    Would you not think that 74 percent and 68 percent would included Dems? With elections coming should they not look as things such as these. We would say no for they only look out for themselves not the people. Wrong, they look out for the groups and business that give money snd votes to them in order that they can then look out for themselves.

    The greatly under reported outcome is who they dont blame, which just happens to be at the heart of the republican attack on the White House and the evils of regulation...

    Percent saying "great deal of blame"
    Oil and gas companies - 55 percent
    Violence and unrest in Middle Eastern countries - 37 percent
    Foreign countries that export oil - 35 percent
    The Obama Administration - 26 percent
    Environmental regulations - 22 percent
    Republicans in Congress - 18 percent American consumers - 10 percent

    I wonder if the poll would ask those same respondents if they believe voter fraud is prolific what they would say.
    The integrity of our vote has been called into question only to make more difficult for folks who have been traditionally disenfranchised...it is not a coincidence.
    A local paper recently publish a short LTE that said " if you cant get a way to get a voter ID , then how do you find a way to vote". This ignorance can only be dispelled if you find the right to vote to be more important than your ability to access that right. The former is immutable and the latter is an impediment.
