Somebody's gotta stand up and be numbered in that lonely 23 percent. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/10/12/voter-id-laws-71-percent-_n_1962047.html -- "Latino voters have been at the center of the voter ID law controversy, and yet according to a new poll released Thursday, they are not too bothered by it. "In its most recent study, the Pew Hispanic Center found that as many as 71 percent of Latino registered voters support the controversial law, which this year will be enforced for the first time in 11 states. Among all registered voters, the ID law, which requires voters to show photo identification in order to cast a ballot, is supported by 77 percent."
