E. J. Dionne on Republicans’ efforts to disenfranchise younger voters in 2012:
In Texas, for example, the law allows concealed handgun licenses as identification but not student IDs. And guess what? Nationwide exit polls show that John McCain carried households in which someone owned a gun by 25 percentage points but lost voters in households without a gun by 32 points.
Predictably, the media is ignoring most of this and the Supreme Court is upholding it all.
