New Poll: Overwhelming Majority of Texas Voters Oppose Asset Forfeiture Without A Criminal Conviction

| February 10, 2017

In a statewide poll done for the Texas Public Policy Foundation, Baselice & Associates asked 922 registered Texas voters (+/- 3.2% margin of error) from Jan. 22 to 29, 2017, the following question: “Civil asset forfeiture is when the state or federal government takes and keeps a person’s property without necessarily charging them with any criminal behavior. Should the state or federal government be allowed to take and keep a person’s property without a criminal conviction?”

Based on the results, an overwhelming majority of Texan voters don’t believe the state or federal government should be allowed to take and keep a person’s property without a criminal conviction. Below are the results of the poll, as well as crosstabs and the questions asked of voters.
