10/25/19: Polls On Impeachment Inquiry & Statewide Issues; Election Security


Play Audio

On Friday’s program, we took a closer look at the impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump, it’s ties to Florida, and two new University of North Florida (UNF) polls.

One poll looked at how voters feel about the impeachment inquiry and some potential presidential matchups.

The other poll asked whether voters favor legalizing recreational pot. It also included apporval ratings for Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL), Senators Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Rick Scott (R-FL), along with Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried (D-FL).

Voters were also asked about the implementation of Amendment 4, restoring ex-felons’ voting rights, and employers’ use of the E-Verify federal immigration database to vet employees.

Steve Contorno, Tampa Bay Times Political Editor and Mike Binder, Faculty Director of  the UNF Public Opinion Research Lab, joined us for the discussion.

Earlier this week, Florida officials said the state’s election website for petition gatherers is broken. So, we also took a closer look at the security of elections in the Sunshine State with Steve Contorno, and Ion Sancho, former Leon County Supervisor of Elections.
