    Remember how, during the media's failed months-long crusade to push for gun control, the GOP was under siege 24/7 from left-wingers like Chuck Todd, Joe Scarborough, and Wolf Blitzer armed with polls that showed 80% wanted background checks tightened, including a majority of Republicans?

    Part of the media strategy (CNN turned their entire network over to the partisan cause) was relentless concern-trolling. The cries that the GOP was doomed if our 2nd Amendment rights weren't further restricted came from every corner of MediaLand: "This is an 80-20 issue!", was the talking point across every new outlet in America.

    Well, guess what else is an 80-20 issue? Voter ID.

    A McClatchy poll released Thursday shows that 83% of those polled believe laws requiring voters to "show identification in order to vote" is a "good thing." Only 13% see it as a "bad thing."

    Moreover, a full 72% of Democrats see voter ID as a "good thing."

    In fact, 65% of those who see themselves as "very liberal" favor voter ID laws.

    They're not "out of touch." Saying they're out of touch implies an ignorance. They have perfect knowledge of the public sentiment. They're just engaged in a full-blown propaganda campaign.
