This morning, Jesse Phillips of Restore Justice released a poll showing that there is a growing concern among voters about “judicial activism” in the state of Florida. Phillips indicates that some analysts describe this Court as “one of the most activist in the nation”. Specifically, voters are taking a closer look at three of Florida’s Supreme Court Justices. After engaging with Floridians around the state, Restore Justice released the following information via email:
Supreme Court Justices fail merit retention straw poll
A straw poll taken at a Hillsborough GOP event asked whether Florida Supreme Court Justices Pariente, Quince and Lewis should be retained. All three Justices failed to garner the requisite 50% needed to stay in office. The results are as follows:
Justice Yes No Lewis 34% 66% Quince 28% 72% Pariente 27% 73%
This poll shows a healthy dissatisfaction with the rulings of Florida’s Supreme Court Justices. Although no Justice has ever failed retention in Florida, a growing number of voters are researching the decisions of three Justices who have each presided on a court some analysts describe as one of the most activist in the nation.
