Proving strict necessity is not a part of amending the Constitution, so the fact that it happened does not mean it was necessary. There were plenty of people who believed that the 24th Amendment was unnecessary, but nevertheless supported its ratification. (And indeed, the Supreme Court did take their side and strike down the remaining poll taxes just two years later.)
