Voters Like Provisions In "For The People" Voting Rights Bill

These charts are from the new Data For Progress Poll -- done between April 16th and 19th of a national sample of 1,138 likely voters, with a 3 point margin of error.

It shows that most voters like the provisions in the "For The People" voting rights bill that the House of Representatives passed and sent to the Senate. The bill has been held up in the Senate because of Republican opposition, and may well be killed by a GOP filibuster.

Once again, the Republicans have staked out a position in opposition to what the voters in this country want. They believe that blocking this bill (and passing voter suppression bills in some states) is the path to get them a majority in Congress. But if this (and other) poll is correct, that could well backfire on them.
