Pew finds sharp decline in Republican support for making voting easy

The share of Republicans who say "everything possible" should be done to make voting easy has declined since 2018, according to a Pew survey published this week.

Why it matters: State legislatures have introduced at least 361 voter restriction bills this year, according to an analysis by the Brennan Center for Justice. Voting rights advocates say many of the bills, if passed, will disproportionately affect voters of color, as well as those with disabilities.

-snip-

85% of Democrats and Democratic-leaning Independents say everything possible should be done to make it easy for every citizen to vote, while 14% say citizens should have to prove they really want to vote by registering ahead of time.

28% of Republicans and Republican-leaning Independents say everything possible should be done to make it easy for all citizens to vote, while 71% say American citizens should prove they really want to vote by registering ahead of time.

1. Sad

They are giving up on democracy. And, practically speaking, do they not think that, one day, these laws will bite THEM back. *They* won't be in charge forever.

2. We Should Remember Those Who ID's As Republican in 2018 is Different than in 2021

The saner ones no longer ID as Republican with many becoming "Independents" and some even becoming Democrats in the Trump era.
