New poll reveals most Americans favor voter ID laws:

Most Americans think voter identification laws are needed to stop voter fraud, according to a Fox News poll released Wednesday.

Overall, 70 percent of Americans say voter ID laws are needed to stop illegal voting. That’s far more than the 26 percent who see the laws as a hindrance to legal voting.

An overwhelming 87-percent majority of Republicans say voter ID laws are necessary to ensure only eligible voters participate in elections. Some 74 percent of independents and 52 percent of Democrats agree.
