Conservatives Oppose Having Congress Control Elections

Conservatives strongly oppose HR 1, the bill passed by the House of Representatives to control elections for Congress, with 99.7% saying they disapprove of it.

The opposition extended to every major feature of HR 1.

Centralized control in Washington 98.8% opposed

Prohibiting voter ID 99.8% opposed

Public funding of campaigns 99.5% opposed

Allowing felons to vote 99.6% opposed

Limitations on removing ineligible voters from registration lists 99.1% opposed

Automatically registering welfare recipients 98.8% opposed

Many states are now changing their election laws based on their experience in 2020, but HR 1 would overrule those changes with a uniform national standard, which has never before been done.

Although HR 1 passed the House on a party line vote, Senate passage will depend on whether more moderate Democrats are willing to risk antagonizing conservatives by abolishing the filibuster and voting for the bill.

The poll was conducted online in April, with more than 1,300 responses.

The Conservative Caucus is a grassroots public policy action organization, formed in 1974. It was active in defeating the SALT II Treaty, repealing the Catastrophic Coverage Act, blocking the Clinton health-care takeover, securing the impeachment of President Clinton by the House of Representatives, stopping amnesty for illegal aliens, persuading the House of Representatives to sue President Obama regarding ObamaCare, and promoting the confirmation of Justice Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett.
