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

Oct 25, 2019

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.
