Most of the Democrat arguments for their new radical ‘For the People Act,’ which would overhaul voting in the US and make voter fraud and ballot harvesting even easier than it already is, are based on the idea that voting for many people is hard.

Unfortunately for Democrats, new polls are now showing that this just isn’t true.

As The Hill reports:

The For The People Act appears doomed in the Senate, but congressional deliberations over securing the vote surely will continue. Support for the legislation is based on the belief that many voters face impediments to voting and find voting difficult. But do they? Answering the question is crucial now for two reasons. The right to vote is always of central importance in a democracy. And, we need to know from voters whether there were special problems in 2020 given the massive changes in the way Americans voted. What does polling tell us?

Throughout the 2020 campaign, Americans were bombarded with news stories about potential election nightmare scenarios. Would there be a pandemic-related shortage of poll workers? Would the U.S. Postal Service be able to deliver and collect mail ballots on time? Would foreign governments interfere? Would former President Trump’s attacks on voting by mail depress turnout? Perhaps surprisingly, given all the hype, a record number of Americans voted. What’s more, 77 percent in Pew’s post-election poll said they found voting was “very easy” and another 17 percent, “somewhat easy.” Only 1 percent of self-identified voters said it was “very difficult” and 5 percent, “somewhat difficult.”

Wait times were long for some in 2020, but not for a majority of voters. Fifty-nine percent nationally (including 62 percent of whites, 47 percent of Blacks, and 51 percent of Hispanics) waited 10 minutes or not at all. These results come from an exhaustive online post-election survey conducted by the Democracy Fund Voter Study Group (VSG). Another 21 percent waited between 10 minutes and a half-hour, while 11 percent waited 31 minutes to an hour. Eight percent of those voting in person reported waiting more than an hour. One area to note is the racial differences in wait times: 13 percent of Black voters, compared to 7 percent of whites and 8 percent of Hispanics, waited more than an hour.

What about impediments to voting? The VSG poll found little evidence that they were widespread, and the results were surprisingly uniform across racial and ethnic groups. Those of us who study public opinion don’t rely on a single survey to form our inferences. The results of the VSG survey confirm those of earlier surveys from the Public Religion Research Institute and The Atlantic in 2018, NPR/Marist Poll in 2018, and NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist Poll in 2020.

It appears that the Democrat arguments for the ‘For the People’ act are falling apart even faster than its support among moderate Democrats.

The democrats are dreaming & wishing big for the mail in voting to continue so they can cheat big like they did in 2020 election……. that’s the only way they know, it’s really sad that they don’t have no SELF RESPECT, so therefore, they don’t have any respect for anyone else……

But the changing is not happening fast enough. By Nov. of next year we may be speaking Russian or Chinese. This admin right along with Congress is putting the ONCE great country in peril. Antifa/blm are Marxist groups that provide division among the racist even though they are the racist.

Well, it could be rather difficult if any of the following are true:
1: the voter is a scatterbrain and never remembers what day it is or where the polling station is etc. maybe due to drugs. or they just can’t decide between voting the way they want and voting how everyone else does, or are mentally handicapped and find it difficult to understand what any of the candidates stand for or are trying to “cheat on the test” by finding out what a person in another booth put down.
2: They do not have a legal ability to engage in voting in that state, precinct, or country.

I think 99.9% of the “difficulty” lies in issue #2.

I mean yeah, that would make it VERY difficult. the problem is, it’s supposed to be difficult because it’s illegal, in fact it’s not supposed to be possible at all!
