DEBATE: Should U.S. Citizens Have to Pass a Test to Vote?
If you watched the most recent "Watters' World," then you know that many U.S. citizens aren't exactly up-to-date on their current events, government and politics.
So is it time to revisit the idea of vetting voters?
Ann Coulter and Nomiki Konst appeared on "Fox and Friends" to debate if citizens should have to pass a civics test in order to vote.
Coulter argued that there should be a test and it should be more difficult to vote.
"There's nothing unconstitutional about literacy tests. Instead, we have ballots being given in 124 different languages," Coulter said. "I'm pretty sure Senate debates will not be taking place in Urdu. So what are they voting on?"
"My main point is: I would let Democrats do all of the vote theft they can get away with, but I would limit the voting day to one 24-hour period," Coulter said.
Konst countered that only 36 percent of the U.S. population is voting, which is the lowest ever, and not one state went over 60 percent this past election.
"We have a civic crisis in America. We shouldn't block people from voting. We should be investing in civic education," Konst said. "And since 1960, we have cut civic education drastically across the board. So the real problem is the education system, which Republicans are defunding state by state."
"Is a completely ignorant voter better for the Democratic party or the Republican party?" Coulter asked.
"Democratic party," she asserted.
