According to the latest Thinking Minnesota poll (February 26-28), an overwhelming majority (60%) of Minnesotans oppose restoring the right to vote for convicted felons. The poll results were released by Center of the American Experiment today as Gov. Tim Walz signed a bill giving felons the right to vote after they are released from prison but before completing their sentence. Forty-four percent of Minnesotans polled strongly opposed allowing felons to vote while 16 percent somewhat opposed.
The poll was conducted last week by Meeting Street Insights, a nationally recognized polling operation based in Charleston, South Carolina. Using a mix of cell phones and landline phones, the company interviewed 500 registered voters across Minnesota from February 26-28, 2023. The margin of error is +-4.38 percent.
The question on felon voting was worded as follows:
Currently in Minnesota, convicted felons lose their right to vote until their entire sentence is complete, including prison time and probation. Would you support or oppose restoring the right to vote for convicted felons BEFORE they serve their full sentence?
20% STRONGLY SUPPORT
16% SOMEWHAT SUPPORT
16% SOMEWHAT OPPOSE
44% STRONGLY OPPOSE
3% NO OPINION
36% TOTAL SUPPORT
60% TOTAL OPPOSE
“Gov. Walz and Democrats in the legislature are forcing through an agenda that is not supported by the people of Minnesota, and felon voting is just the latest example,” said John Hinderaker, President of Center of the American Experiment.
The rest of the poll results will be released in the next issue of Thinking Minnesota magazine.
