A new Rasmussen Reports national phone and online survey finds 75 percent of Likely U.S. voters believe requiring voters to show photo identification before being allowed to vote is necessary to “a fair and secure election process.”

Just 19 percent of voters disagree.

After President Joe Biden called Georgia’s law requiring voter ID “Jim Crow on steroids,” Major League Baseball pulled its All-Star game from Atlanta.

However, 50 percent of voters said they oppose boycotts against Georgia. Thirty-seven percent support boycotts and 13 percent are not sure.

Support for voter ID knows no party lines. Eighty-nine percent of Republicans support the measure while 65 percent of Democrats and 71 percent of unaffiliated voters agree.

Worth pointing out — 73 percent of black voters and 81 percent of other minority voters say requiring voters show ID is necessary.
