The war against the restoration of the citizenship question to the census, like the war on voter ID, has been waged under the false flag of disenfranchisement.
But there's another thing that voter ID and the citizenship question have in common. The minority voters that are being "protected" from disenfranchisement actually support having voter ID and being asked about their citizenship.
Two-thirds of voters approve of a citizenship question on the 2020 census, and that includes a majority of Hispanic voters — despite claims by Democratic lawmakers that the inquiry would discourage participation in Latino communities.
A Harvard University Center for American Political Studies/Harris poll found that 67% of all registered U.S. voters say the census should ask the citizenship question when the time comes. That includes 88% of Republicans, 63% of independents and 52% of Democrats.
Most notably, the poll found that 55% of Hispanic voters favor the idea.
Also in agreement: 74% of rural voters, 59% of black voters, 58% of urban voters and 47% of voters who backed Hillary Clinton in 2016. At 44%, liberal voters were the least likely to favor the citizenship question.
The only real opposition, as usual, comes from white lefties. Not because they care about minorities, but they fear the implosion of some of the districts that they represent.
The Democrat judges fighting to protect fake districts claim that they want to protect Hispanic people. Yet Hispanic voters don't agree.
The claim has been made that the citizenship question was added under false pretenses. The truth is that the campaign to remove it is being fought under false pretenses.
