You have to show your ID a lot in day-to-day life. For voter ID supporters, it makes complete sense to show it at the polls. However, the tension comes from the fact that there are marginalized groups of people who do not have ID.
#VoterIDReasonable
Showing ID is reasonable, especially for something as important as voting.
#VoterIDDiscriminates
Voter ID laws have been shown to disenfranchise people. The problem it’s trying to solve—voter fraud—doesn’t really exist. Critics of the law say that voter ID laws are actually trying to prevent poorer groups and people of color from voting. There’s a deep history in the U.S. of those in power trying to prevent other groups from voting.

While the Gallup polls show people are in favor of the laws, the fact is voter ID laws are unconstitutional.
