Harmeet Dhillon Appears on Fox News’ ‘Tucker Carlson Tonight’ To Discuss Voter ID Laws
According to Dhillon:
These two economics professors, one at Harvard Business School and the other in University of Bologna used data from a liberal progressive database which worked on progressive groups on these issues. They examined 1.3 billion different data points and they had data on gender, race, sex, and political affiliation and they were able to compare the states that had a strong voter I.D. laws and 10 of them against the ones that don’t. There was statistically no difference, so that really rebuts the left’s mythology that voter I.D. laws are directed at suppressing the minority vote on the theory that elderly or minority or poor people are unable to get an I.D. You and I know that you can’t operate in society today without I.D. and we need it for some reasons. Really encouraging data.
We, as Republicans, tend to become very intimidated when everybody or anybody says the R word. You are racist. You are racist. And we really buy into that demagoguery and back down. I hope to see more Republicans step forward and say we are not racist. We are trying to protect the integrity of every single vote. I’m an immigrant to this country and the right to vote is very precious and something that people don’t have around the world. The way we casually water it down in this country by allowing people to vote who are not entitled to vote and 3 million illegal aliens plus in California, for example, is really shocking and it’s time for it to stop. I’m glad to see this data from non-not from a conservative source but from objective professors, economists and I hope that we will begin to start pushing back on this false narrative by the left.
On the flip side, and as these two professors point out in their study, the effect of voter I.D. laws does increase confidence among the voting population. In the outcomes of these elections and we certainly need more of that as well.
