Do you think voter fraud is a serious problem in the United States?
No, but voter suppression is.
No. There is absolutely zero evidence that voter fraud is a serious problem. ZERO.
Love how liberals state how there have only been minimal cases. They leave out a very crucial word though. Minimal cases 'caught'.
Of course there won't be a lot of cases caught of something that is ridiculously easy to do.
With 31 credible cases in a billion votes cast, I don't think that it s a fucking problem at all.
Nobody has to "think" it. We have data. We know it isn't.
Racist Republicans should be arrested for voter suppression.
Every reference or study I have been able to find says no, including the one from my state's very close gubernatorial election that may have been one of the closest watched and reviewed elections in US history. So I'll go with the obvious no.
There are a lot of butt hurt conservatives here. Let's predict the future... If repub's gain control of the Senate, the election was fair and square. If the dem's maintain control it was because of fraud.
Closing polling locations, shortening early voting hours, and increased difficulty of registering voters, not to mention voter ID laws, are all attempts at voter suppression.
A problem, yes. A serious problem, no. But it seems fair enough to require a valid ID to vote.
since it doesn't, does that make your answer a no?
That's funny. I would say the same about capital punishment. Abortion. S gay marriage. But that does not seem to matter to gop. But yes. Let's make laws and spend millions of dollars in something that has never even remotely decided an election.
cases caught. Not cases.
You can't catch something that is virtually impossible to stop the way most laws are now.
I don't fear death - it happens to everybody. I do fear that once I'm dead and buried that I will become a registered Democrat.
Soo when republicans argue about gun laws they say things like: it will only hurt law abiding citizens, just adds more paper work, it's our right, a criminal will find a way to do obtain it anyway. Well just replace "gun laws" with "voter ID laws".
Fraud is an issue, but the largest-scale fraud in America is when Republicans are suppressing poor people's votes. Voter suppression is the greatest fraud.
so we should spend millions to prevent one corrupt vote?
Lol... Suppressing? I love how you idiots think making sure the people that are voting are doing it legally is suppressing. The pres received 1500 more votes than there are people in my county, if you don't see where that's a problem...
When it accounts for 3.5% of the vote, yes.
I love how democrats are so defensive. They can't even admit that there is even the possibility of voter fraud. How closed minded are you people?
I was going to cite evidence from multiple sources about how there is very little voter fraud and the fact that way too many people who vote conservative do not know anything about the candidates they support but you wouldn't believe me anyway.
Yes. Democratic voter fraud.
You're going to come back on SoH in a year with tattoos and talking about your time in the slammer.
Thank you for proving my point that you would not believe it and for the insult. Because you believe something is manipulated, does not mean it is true. Keep that in mind for the future. Have a good day.
Remind me how ensuring a fair election is racist, please.
Voter fraud is not even a MINOR problem in the US. Voter ID is a single-party solution to a problem that doesn't exist. Unless that problem is young, minority, and disabled people voting. Then it's accomplishing exactly what they intended it to.
I am willing to make a documentary about me voting twice.
Even if it means I will go to jail.
Just to show how messed up our system is. To make a change. Sometimes sacrifices are necessary to make change.
Nope... Liberals don't see a problem getting dead people to vote.
In fact they let them vote two or even three times.
Oh of course not, all those precincts in Ohio and Pennsylvania and others that voted 99 or 100% for Obama in 2012 is statistically normal...yeah sure (sarcasm).
I don't want to suppress poor people, I want to see them better themselves.
lol red. Good point. By the same token, just because we haven't caught very many gun owners who use their guns to threaten and manipulate people doesn't mean it isn't a problem. We better start restricting gun rights just in case.
^Racist literally has NO meaning anymore because of liberals. Congrats, your favorite word is ineffective.
There have been 30 credible cases in 20 years. It's a non-issue.
"Racist republicans...?" Racist is thinking minorities are too stupid to obtain an ID and register when the law says to. That takes minimal planning. Of course the law is racist if it's not convenient for liberals. Who's the racist again?
That's the portion of votes in North Carolina that were cast by dead people or people that voted twice in 2012.
Only 31 cases of credible incidents of voter fraud so far! www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/wonkblog/wp/2014/08/06/a-comprehensive-investigation-of-voter-impersonation-finds-31-credible-incidents-out-of-one-billion-ballots-cast/
Yes and one that can't be properly quantified because most places don't even ask for a voter id to begin with. It could be statistically quantified using a few voting sites as "control sites" where the true id of each voter is verified before
Or after a vote is cast, but that'll never happen. Democrats don't want this problem to be properly quantified or even solved. They're the primary beneficiaries of dead and illegal voters.
Tell me genius, how, exactly is this voter suppression?
Voter fraud is bad, but when you create laws to prevent thousands, and hundreds of thousands legal Americans from voting, we have a greater issue.
Voter suppression is the evilest manifestation of voter fraud, and that needs to be dealt with first.
Just because you believe something doesn't make it so.
The most famous liberal policy known as the 1st amendment has been very effective.
In fact, conservatives love the liberal idea of free speech so much they think it should apply to inanimate objects like money.
Me? No. I've told you before I'm not in favor of this market driven nonsense known as obamacare. No one should be forced to buy insurance. We need a universal healthcare system.
During all the voting periods between 2002-2007, whereas a total of 300 million votes were cast, only 86 were found to be fraudulent. Even if voter frad were a thousand times worse than it currently is, it still wouldn't have affected an election.
NO SUCH THING! Voter fraud is rare. www.newyorker.com/magazine/2012/10/29/the-voter-fraud-myth
Voter suppression! Another tactic by republikkkans.
Lol, I'm thinking he meant "dead".
the silly part is how the allegations of voter fraud are aimed at democrats, as if a few more dollars on their welfare check would inspire so many people to do that. No, the right has the the real incentive to cheat here, by reducing regulations.
^^^^ This is the real issue.
To all of those liberals who claim that voter fraud is negligible, the bottom line is you don't know. You have no idea how often voter fraud occurs because it's impossible to track .
Dead Dems keep Voting.
