Six out of 10 Floridians support Governor Rick Scott’s effort to prevent illegally registered voters from casting ballots.
A new Quinnipiac Poll asked Florida voters if they agreed with the governor’s campaign to purge the voter rolls. Scott says he’s surprised support isn’t even higher.
“I’ve not meet one person in the state who thinks that non-US Citizens should be voting in our elections. Nobody does. It’s my job to make sure that I do every thing I can to make sure only US Citizens vote in our races,” said Scott.
According to the poll 35 percent oppose Scott’s efforts. He’s also being sued by the federal government, the ACLU and a group of minority voters to stop the purge.
