I don't blame all of them. For the past 40 years corporations have built a powerful marketing machine, and without my privileged life, I'd probably believe some conservative radio, cable news, and WSJ op-eds as well.
Look at the post above, for example. Despite nearly zero cases of deliberate voter fraud, the myth holds on - that's the power of billions of dollars in marketing, think tanks, paranoia sites, a near total radio takeover, etc. It's incredibly effective.
HOWEVER - we can defeat it. Right-wing corporate donations can be countered with a flood of progressive phone calls.
