I've always wondered why voter suppression studies never counted for much, or weren't presented, in the case before the Supreme Court right now. Here's Chris Matthews with just one study:

According to a study conducted by Justin Levitt of the New York University Law School, “Many of the claims of voter fraud amount to a great deal of smoke without much fire…Most allegations of fraud turn out to be baseless—and that of the few allegations remaining, most reveal election irregularities and other forms of election misconduct, rather than fraud by individual voters. The type of individual voter fraud supposedly targeted by recent legislative efforts—especially efforts to require certain forms of voter ID—simply does not exist.”
