DUMB! Chelsea Clinton Claims ‘Math Helps Show How Voter ID Laws Are Discriminating at Polls’

The Democrats know that if strict voter ID laws are passed there is a good chance they will never win an election again.

Chelsea Clinton promoted an article where researchers at Tufts University and Harvard University claim they were able to demonstrate that it’s possible to match individuals across government databases with nearly perfect accuracy, using just a few basic identifiers like a person’s name, date of birth, and address – rather than requiring identification.

Chelsea Clinton tweeted, “Math helps show how voter ID laws are discriminating at the polls”… yes, she really said that:

An excerpt from the wired.com article actually admits that so few people lack ID’s that he cautions Democrats not to inflate the impact of voter ID laws, the GP reported:

Once Hersh and Ansolabehere were confident they had properly matched registered voters to their ID records, they used a commercial tool called Catalist to predict each voter’s race. That tool analyzes names to determine how likely a given name is to be associated with one race or another. It also accounts for the demographics of the Census block where a given voter lives. Using this tool, the researchers confirmed what voting rights advocates already know to be true—that black voters are more likely to lack adequate identification under voter ID laws. According to the study, 3.6 percent of registered white voters had no match in any state or federal ID database. By contrast, 7.5 percent of black registered voters were missing from those databases.

The algorithm shows a clear and disturbing racial disparity on voting rights. But Hersh says that it also shows that voter ID laws affect a relatively small percentage of the population. Across all registered voters in Texas, the researchers found 4.5 percent lack proper identification. For registered voters who actually showed up at the polls in 2012, it’s 1.5 percent.

Hersh says he agrees the public ought to be outraged by racially motivated attempts to suppress the vote, and that courts ought to crack down on the practice. But he cautions against Democrats artificially inflating the impact of voter ID laws in their messaging.

Here are 24 things that require photo ID and strangely enough, the liberals never cry about any of them. How can you even be a functioning person in society without some form of ID?
