Today’s Rasmussen Reports survey shows that 64% of likely American voters think that voter fraud is at least a somewhat serious problem.
That fits with the Elon University Poll results released earlier this month in which 74% of North Carolina residents — not necessarily likely voters — said they support the idea of a photo ID requirement before voting.
Is election fraud a serious problem in North Carolina? Not that anyone has shown. But my sense is that people don’t think there is any significant harm — or obstacle — in showing a photo ID, just in case.
