This is a great example of why Republicans win anything these days. Both Reps and Dems, after every election cycle in the 21st century, have created court cases and publicly cried and whined about voter fraud. Every single time. And it's bad, both sides make outrageous claims and the media clings to it like it's their baby for a few months.
So what does each party do? Well, Dems do nothing. They actually cry and whine and then the next day talk about how they want to make voting easier. Reps, on the other hand, actually take action. They see a problem and they try to do something about it. Whether or not you agree or disagree with the action they are taking, they are still taking action. People like that. People want to see progress instead of just whining and crying about something. While this doesn't apply as much to hard stances people take on specific topics, everyone has topics they see as lower priority and don't invest much thought into them. For those people, when they see action, they typically align with that action. Again, that's not true for those who believe voter access is a huge priority. But, for those who don't, all they see is that the Reps are fixing a problem.
Also, this article is someone racist and discriminatory.
"Voting rights advocates and Democrats dismiss those claims and argue that the policies are designed to dampen turnout among younger, nonwhite and poorer voters, who are less likely to back Republicans."
So, policies to put penalties behind making mistakes hurt the younger, nonwhite and poorer voters? So, indirectly, the article is claiming that those same people make more mistakes than the others. That's pretty mean and enforcing a stereotype. I thought Liberals didn't like stereotypes and discrimination. Just saying.
