Obama did not win a single state that requires photo IDs to vote...

President didn’t win single state that required Voter ID
By Aaron Klein @ WND

Did the suppression or lack of voter ID laws aid President Obama’s victory over Mitt Romney?

Obama did not win a single state that requires photo IDs to vote, although he was victorious in four states that require non-photo identification – Washington, Colorado, Ohio and Virginia. Those states accept as legitimate identification current utility bills, bank statements and paychecks.

Obama won several closely contested states that do not require any voter identification, including Minnesota, New Mexico, Pennsylvania, Iowa, Wisconsin and Nevada.

The states that Obama lost that do require photo identification do not traditionally vote Republican. Tennessee, for example, voted Democrat in the 1972, 1992 and 1996 presidential elections. Georgia, which also requires photo ID, voted Democrat in the 1976, 1980 and 1992 presidential elections.

In Colorado, where non-photo identification is accepted, a review by showed irregular voting patterns, finding that 10 counties had a total registration ranging between 104 to 140 percent of the respective populations.




  2. This is a flat-out lie, one among countless untruths trumpeted on this poor excuse for a blog.

    Ever hear of Florida, Pennsylvania or Michigan (among others)? Together these states have over 40 million people, so even someone "writing" for WND is likely to be aware of their existence.

    Also, there is a difference between "voter ID" and "photo ID," not that your conflating the two makes an already inane post any worse.

    Mitt Romney lost. By a ton. Just as he deserved after running a lackluster, even ramshackle campaign. It's time to accept this, stop wasting time with dishonest and banal Internet postings, and find someone more productive to do with yourself.
