In the aftermath of 2020, numerous red states passed voter integrity laws. Joe Biden claimed that these laws were Jim Crow 2.0–meant to suppress minority voters.
Well, we’ve had a few elections since these laws were passed. And guess what happened?
From The Daily Signal:
Arizona notched a record for high turnout in a primary election as 1.45 million voters participated, or 35.1% of those registered, surpassing the previous record in a 2000 primary by 7,000 ballots…
The five states that appeared to come under the most attack were Georgia, Texas, Arizona, Florida, and Iowa—all of which saw boosted voter turnout so far in 2022 compared to the 2018 primaries.
Well, would you look at that?
Democrats complained for months that red states were trying to “suppress” Americans from voting.
They specifically targeted Georgia, Texas, Arizona, Florida, and Iowa. The left accused these Republican-controlled legislatures of trying to stop people of color from voting.
Biden even enflamed old racial scars by calling these laws “Jim Crow 2.0.” Real unifying of you, Joe.
But as it turned out, all of these states saw boosted voter turnout over the 2022 primaries, compared to the 2018 primaries.
So… I guess that means these laws did what Republicans said they would do: make it easier to vote, but harder to cheat?
Democrats have complained for years about voter ID requirements and other measures.
Oddly enough, all the measures they hate prevent people from voting in someone else’s name. Or vote more than once (or in more than one state).
Isn’t it funny how Democrats oppose the very laws that can stop someone from committing voter fraud?
I guess it’s not that funny when you think about it.
Democrats even tried to pass two bills earlier in the year that would have outlawed voter ID nationwide.
But evidence shows that more people are voting in these red states, even with these “evil” laws in place.
Perhaps Joe should thank Republicans for encouraging more voting. But that would contradict his narrative that the GOP is a “threat to democracy.”
- Five states that passed voter integrity laws in 2021 saw increased voting in 2022.
- These same states were attacked by Joe Biden for supposed voter “suppression.”
- Republican states passed laws that make it “harder to cheat” but easier to vote.
