The utility factor says that betting a couple of dollars that you could easily spare to buy a couple Powerball tickets where you could win millions is a good bet. You won't miss those dollars if you lose & winning is a life changer. Even though the odds say no.
Likewise, if you have 100 million in the bank, its not a good bet to wager 99 million of it on a bet even if you could double your money with 80% chance of winning because the gain does not radically change your well being where a loss would cost nearly all your money. Even though the odd say it is a good bet.
and yet that may be why they are poor...that would be over one hundred dollars in a year. wasted for nothing at all..

My claim is supported.
10 - 12% of eligible voters do not have a photo ID. These are predominantly poor & elderly.
They are also disproportionally black.
These are facts. Facts you would know if you actually studied the issue.
In a Republican meeting after they passed photo voter ID here in PA, the head Republicans said they may have just swung PA for Romney.
Republicans passed these laws because they claimed voter fraud yet they are unable to produce any evidence that there was voter fraud that these photo IDs would prevent.

Corrected: The study was from Georgia

In 2007 Georgia passed a photo ID law

"The number of photo IDs issued by Georgia to individuals who did not already have one of the forms of ID acceptable under state law is remarkably small, averaging less 0.05 percent in most years, and not even reaching three-tenths of 1 percent in a presidential election year. Georgia’s actual experience matches other data, such as a survey conducted by American University of registered voters in Maryland, Indiana, and Mississippi. It found that less than 0.5 percent of respondents had neither a photo ID nor citizenship documentation.[4] A 2008 election survey of 12,000 registered voters in all 50 states found fewer than nine people who were unable to vote because of voter ID requirements.[5] This completely contradicts the unsupported claims of voter ID opponents that there are hundreds of thousands of voters in every state who do not have a photo ID or the claims of the Brennan Center that “as many as 11% of United States citizens…do not have government-issued photo IDs.”[6]

The increase in turnout of both Hispanics and blacks in the 2008 presidential election after the voter ID law became effective is quite remarkable, particularly given the unproven and totally speculative claims of the Justice Department that the voter ID requirements of Texas and South Carolina will somehow have a discriminatory impact on Hispanic and black voters.[7] In fact, Georgia had the largest turnout of minority voters in its history."

Nothing like using a right whiner, lying, dishonest source.

Counting the number of people obtaining that photo ID is not counting those without a photo ID.

You mean more blacks came out to vote in 2008? Really. Gee I wonder why that was. Could bit be there was the first black candidate in a major political party running for President?? Wow, what a dishonest argument you made. To ignore that factor & to declare photo ID requirements increased the number of black voters. That is an outright lie.

In Pa, before the vote, The governor said 99% of Pennsylvanians already had a photo ID. After the law passed is was 9.2% of Pennsylvanians do not have a photo ID.

Kind of totally destroys your argument.

Republicans keep passing these laws & the courts strike them down.

Maybe Republicans should try to win elections based on ideas & the ability to govern instead of trying to cheat to win.

Any REAL American would fight for free & honest elections. Not defend voter suppression in such a dishonest way as you just did.

About 10-12% of eligible voters do not have a photo ID.
The vast majority of these are poor and elderly.
These 10-12% are also disproportionally black.
It has to do with being poor not being black.
The Republicans pass these laws because they will prevent more Democrats from voting than Republicans.
So when Republicans pass these laws, they are well aware that they will be stopping a disproportional number of blacks from voting.
