Voter ID laws are the real story of this year's national elections. Designed by Republicans, the news laws will keep millions of blacks, Latinos, young people, and the elderly from voting this year. As a result, the laws could ensure victory for the Romney-Ryan ticket and GOP Congressional candidates, especially in the all-important swing states. Voter ID laws are supposedly intended to eliminate voter fraud. Except there's one big problem — voter fraud is extraordinarily rare in this country. The mainstream media, however, has done a poor job so far of covering this major issue. Who better, then, to boil it all down than Jon Stewart?
