Poll: Support For Voter Suppression Initiative Collapses In Minnesota

At its peak, support for a ballot initiative to require all voters in Minnesota to show voter ID — a common voter suppression law used to reduce the number of low income, student and minority voters who cast a ballot — enjoyed 80 percent support in some polls. On Saturday, a new survey from Public Policy Polling revealed that 51 percent of Minnesota voters oppose the initiative, as opposed to just 46 percent who support it.
