Vouchers continue to be a controversial issue in the Sunshine State, with a new poll showing more than half of voters are opposed to providing scholarships to low-income students to attend nonpublic or private schools.
The Voter Survey Service, commissioned by Sunshine State News, found 55 percent of voters said they oppose vouchers, while a smaller number — 42 percent — said they support vouchers
Only 2 percent of voters were undecided.
“This has been a tough sell,” said James Lee, president of Voter Survey Service, on the voucher issue.
According to the poll, voters in Southwest Florida had stronger opposition to expanding vouchers than voters in the Panhandle, with 61 percent of voters opposing them.
