The poll also found that almost 70 percent of Americans support the establishment of national vote-by-mail and in-personal early voting guidelines for federal elections.

Overall, half of those questioned support making it easier to vote by mail, with 39% urging that it be made harder. Just 18% oppose this. That includes 89% of Democrats, 68% of independents and 56% of Republicans.

Eight out of 10 of those questioned in the poll support requiring voter ID, including 91% of Republicans, 87% of independents and 62% of Democrats. And there's a partisan divide - with 84% of Democrats but only 40% of independents and 26% of Republicans supportive.

"Twenty-one of the 100 USA senators - including 11 Republicans, nine Democrats and one independent who caucuses with Democrats - are working on the framework to rebuild roads, bridges and other traditional infrastructure that sources said would cost $1.2 trillion over eight years", added Reuters.

Former President Barack Obama hit Republicans on Monday for planning to filibuster voting rights legislation Democrats have been pushing in the Senate. Georgia, Florida, and Texas have each adopted high profile election reforms that critics say are partisan efforts meant to restrict the ability of non-white voters from accessing the ballot.

Schumer said that Republicans defending laws in these states are engaging in "a falsity, a fakeness" when they say it's about "election integrity".

Fourteen states where Republicans control the state government have passed into law measures tightening voting access rules. The maligned Georgia law, for example, expanded early voting in the state and created a requirement for mail-in ballots to be accompanied with a form of photo I.D.
