Poll Shows Eroding Support For Voter ID Initiative In Minnesota

A new Public Policy Polling survey finds steadily eroding support for a voter suppression initiative in Minnesota. Support for an attempt to enshrine voter ID in that state’s constitution fell from 58 percent in June to 56 percent last month, and is now at 51 percent. Although 51 percent remains a narrow majority, the trend suggests the vote suppressing amendment can be defeated, especially because voters who abstain from voting on the initiative count as “no” votes.
