    I don't think they do either, and neither did the PA judge.

    Meanwhile, as the state’s new Voter ID law works its way through the courts, the requirement remains popular.

    “While judges and politicians debate Pennsylvania’s voter ID measure, voters are solidly in support of the measure, 62 – 35 percent,” said Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute. “And 99 percent of voters say they believe they have the necessary documents to cast a ballot.”

    F&M found similar support: 59 percent of respondents said they favor the law, while 39 percent said they opposed it.

    However, critics who oppose the Voter ID requirement do room to win the public opinion battle. Of those who said initially that they favor the law, 21 percent changed their minds when asked, “Would you still favor this law if you knew that many eligible voters will be prevented from voting because they will not have a proper ID?”

    That’s the crux of legal and political arguments against the law.

    51 percent of respondents oppose the law when that 21 percent are figured in, while 47 percent remain opposed

    ...all moot. One of the primary roles of the court is to protect the minority from the tyranny of the majority.

    I think it is wonderful to have a law that will allow a republican to win. But I know that democrats will complain that they need cheating in order to ensure their victories.

    This isn't about that. It is about democrat cheating. If elections are fair they have a very difficult time winning.
