Florida voters support restoring suffrage for reformed felons, according to a new poll from the University of North Florida.
The poll found 71 percent of voters support Amendment 4, also known as the “Voting Restoration Amendment,” with just 21 percent opposed. Ballot amendments need 60 percent support from voters in order make it into the Florida Constitution.
Among Democrats, 83 percent back the policy change. Among Republicans, 62 percent are in favor; however, even that is above the threshold for ratification.
