Americans support implementation of stricter voting laws, including voter ID requirements and restrictions on accepting ballots after Election Day, according to a new poll obtained by The Post Thursday. The polling, commissioned by the Republican National Committee and conducted by former Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway, comes as Republicans have advocated for election reforms, with states including Florida, Georgia and Arizona passing stricter voting laws, which top Democrats have argued is a power grab to disenfranchise voters. The phone survey — which was conducted June 8-13 with 800 registered voters, 31% of whom identify as Democrats, 29% as Republicans, and 36% as independents — found 80% of its participants feel verifying voter ID “is an important security measure,” while 89% said that they are in favor of “purging voter rolls” after individuals have died or are no longer registered in previous areas they resided in. During an appearance with RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel, Conway said that the changes in Georgia’s voting laws were “wildly popular because again, as you’ve seen in everybody’s polling including the media polling, large majorities of Americans favor voter ID.”
