“If voter ID was intended to suppress votes,…”

12 Nov

..It is failing as spectacularly as HealthCare.gov.”

Which really is faint praise…

So in its first real-world test, Texas’ voter ID law — which 66% of Texans support, according to a 2012 University of Texas poll — had no impact on suppressing the vote. It even can be argued that voter ID helped increase turnout. Turnout was up, and in fact, the 2013 constitutional amendment election saw the highest constitutional amendment election turnout in Texas in about eight years.

Opponents of voter ID must come up with a new line to attack it. The old dog that it suppresses the vote just won’t hunt.
