The poll by Monmouth University shows some interesting results in regards to how Democrats and Republicans are thinking, after the contentious aftermath of the 2020 presidential election, and the ongoing fight over election integrity.
Eighty percent of those polled said that they were in support of requiring photo identification to vote, with only eighteen percent opposed.
Broken down by Party, 91% of Republicans, 62% of Democrats, and 87% of independents. The result is surprising, as Democrats often argue that voter ID laws are a form of voter suppression.
When asked about early voting and voting by mail, those polled were much more divided. Fifty percent said they thought voting by mail should be easier, 39% thought it should be harder. Again, broken down by party affiliation, 84% of Democrats supported voting by mail, 40% of independents, but only 26% of Republicans were in support.
When asked about implementing any federal guidelines regarding not just voting by mail, but early in person voting, 69% supported some federal guidelines being established while 25% were opposed. Ninety-two percent of Democrats, supported such measures, 63% of Independents, and 51% of Republicans.
