Poll Finds 78 Percent Want Proof Of Citizenship Requirement To Vote

A new poll by Rasmussen finds that 78% of respondents support a requirement of showing proof of citizenship in order to vote. Not that the Democrats care.

A federal judge last week upheld the right of states to require proof of citizenship before allowing someone to register to vote. Voters continue to overwhelmingly support such a requirement.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 78% of Likely U.S. Voters believe everyone should be required to prove his or her citizenship before being allowed to register to vote.
