Seven out of ten registered voters support voter ID laws, which makes them racist, or something.  Liberals rail against these policies that help maintain the integrity of our constitutional republic, but the vast majority disagree.

The survey conducted by Fox News found a majority in every demographic (race, age, income, sex, political bent) support voter ID laws - including 53% of self-described liberals, 70% of men, and 71% of women.

A Marist poll in July of 2013 also found a majority (65%) of Americans describing themselves as "very liberal" supported Voter ID laws.  That's right; we have the MSNBC crowd supporting rational measures to make sure our elections are as legitimate as possible.  Additionally, the Marist polls indicated that the rich, poor, middle class, college-educated, non-college educated, men, and women support such laws - on average - by 82%.

It also found that 83% of non-whites also support it.

So, what's the controversy?
