The Supreme Court’s hearing of challenges to the Voting Rights Act may result in a tightening of voting requirements. In anticipation, Democrats are preemptively pushing to make voting and voter registration easier in the court of public opinion. They complain that long lines on Election Day cost “Democrats hundreds of thousands of voters in November.” President Obama is expected to call for further loosening of voter requirements in his State of the Union address.
Democratic media and talking points do not disclose that 2012 wait
times were slightly shorter than in 2008, there were no significant
differences in wait times by party identification, voters were satisfied
with the voting process, and expressed considerable support for voter
IDs. The 2012 election was much the same as 2008 but without the same
Democrat gnashing of teeth over voter suppression.
