Three out of five Florida voters say they favor Gov. Rick Scott's effort to purge potential non-citizens from the state's voter rolls, a poll released Wednesday showed.
The survey of 1,697 Florida voters by Quinnipiac (Conn.) University showed 60 percent in favor and 35 percent opposed to the governor's attempts. Five percent didn't have an opinion. The margin of error in a snapshot of voters' views taken between June 12 and June 18 was plus or minus 2.4 percentage points.

Now a leftwing polling group from CONNECTICUT shows their efforts are failing. And...get this: if Quinnipiac shows this to be the measure, the REAL numbers are probably worse for the regime.
This really pisses me off...who GAF what the survey says! IT’S THE RIGHT AND LEGAL THING TO DO. In Obamaworld, the truth is of secondary concern, if at all.
And the Democrats think the dumb peasants don’t know enough to do the right thing - to leave the voting rolls out of date.
Love to see this type of information SoFloFreeper. Thank You! Good news! Florida is in the loop of those siding with the Rule of Law.
Living here, I’m surprised it was that close.
The MSM bashing of Florida is repugnent
repugnant - I must go search for coffee.
..........................Demigods against any who do not march in lock step with them
.......................illEgal aliens wanting a free ride to citizenship & the vote
.....elite east cost Media protection and overt support
.........................Obama's Chicago gangsters
.........................Communists wanting back in power
.........................Rewriting the Constitution by judicial activism
.........................Anti-American Christian haters
.........................Tyranny of the union closed shop
.........................Socialists demanding to share the wealth
Now, that... makes it very clear who is who--
Was there a poll for allowing felons and dead people to vote?

If the effect of the NVRA (Motor Voter) is to force a state to allow never-eligible non-citizens the opportunity to vote, he wrote, then the statute might violate the Equal Protection Clause of the Constitution, which guarantees that the right to vote cannot be denied by a dilution of the weight of a citizens vote.
As for the Voting Rights Act claim, Detzner wrote, Florida already received federal permission to remove noncitizens, which is clearly spelled out in Florida law.
Whats more, the Voting Rights Act applies to only five Florida counties Monroe, Hillsborough, Collier, Hardee and Hendry and not the other 62 in Florida, including Miami-Dade, where about 1,600 of the 2,700 potential noncitizens were initially identified by the state in a database created by the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles.
About 500 people in Miami-Dade have been found to be lawful citizens and voters, and 13 noncitizens have been found. Two of them might have voted and could face prosecution. The county has been unable to verify the citizenship of more than 1,100 others.
Assuming the purge halts, those people could vote this year even if some are noncitizens.
"Not a single eligible voter as far, as I know, has been removed from the voter rolls," Scott said Wednesday on WNDB radio in Daytona Beach, according to a News Service of Florida transcript. "Not one. And were working to keep it that way."
"Their vote should not be diluted by people who dont have the right to vote," Scott said. "We need to be reviewing our voter rolls and making sure only those individuals who have the right to vote are voting."
This hardly seems like an approach earnestly designed to protect the integrity of elections and to ensure that eligible voters have their votes counted, said the letter, written by Scotts hand-picked secretary of state, Ken Detzner, a fellow Republican.
Detzner also submitted a list of four questions that he wants the DOJ to answer:
