After all of the drama and foolishness, the people of Indiana have spoken... They're not here for RFRA.
Buzzfeed sheds the light of this poll:
A poll released Monday by Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research found that 85% of Hoosiers say business owners should not be allowed to turn away a customer based on sexual orientation or gender identity, even if an owner says homosexuality violates their religious beliefs. Just 12% said a business should be allowed to turn away customers due to religion — 3% did not know or refused to answer.
Gov. Mike Pence had signed a religious freedom law amid furor on April 2.
“Pence and his supporters in the legislature may have imagined this issue energizing their base without any real collateral impact outside of a minority of LGBT activists,” says a polling memo issued by Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research. “They could not have been more wrong.”
At issue was a Religious Freedom Restoration Act, which LGBT advocates said could be used by businesses to turn away clients. After an outcry and a plea from Pence to “fix” the bill, legislators approved an amendment that said the law could not be raised as a defense in discrimination cases.
Even despite those revisions, the pollsters found 53% of voters have an unfavorable view of Pence for signing it into law, compared with 38% who had a favorable impression of him approving the law. Meanwhile, 75% of voters said the law and the controversy around it was bad for business.
Overall, the poll also found Pence had a 39% favorability rating to 38% unfavorability rating.
The poll was conducted from April 7–9.
