The Washington Post poll

Question 2 of 12

In this poll:

Almost three-quarters of all Americans support the idea that people should have to show photo identification to vote, even though they are nearly as concerned about voter suppression as they are about fraud in presidential elections, according to a new Washington Post poll.

This Washington Post poll was conducted by telephone July 18 to 29 2012, among a random national sample of 2,047 adults, including users of both conventional and cellular phones. The results from the full survey have a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 2.5 percentage points. Sampling, data collection and tabulation by SSRS of Media, Pa.
