Uhh, I think it's just the opposite. It appears that (according to this poll) support for her to VETO the bill is actually AHEAD by that margin. It asks if she should VETO the bill, YES or NO.

We've got a BIG HOLE to dig out of.

if you don’t like the business, go somewhere else

when did it become acceptable to force others to do things against their will?

I thought they meant that the public wants it vetoed but business owners support the bill.

It became “acceptable” to Democrats to ignore the will of the Article V state supermajority when they passed constitutionally indefensible stimulus funding and constitutionally indefensible Obamacare Democratcare.

Sorry, I worded that like a butchered ballot measure - should have stated "opposition" instead of "support" and phrased differently anyway. Not that any of this is much consequence. Meanwhile on the unwanted opinion front, Sens. McCain and Flake have weighed in favoring a veto.

A legitimate question. The answer is when the Civil Rights Act of 1964 was signed into law by then President Lyndon Johnson.

Those percentages are so out of whack with polls I have seen that I think gays are flooding the poll or that the poll results have been falsified.

I think people are misunderstanding the wording of the poll and are selecting the opposite of what they intend.

No, they are convinced the world will collapse if she passes this law. It’s in all the papers. The poll is accurate.

I don’t know her, but I’ve met her and heard her speak, and I agree, zero chance.

To to honest, there shouldn’t need to be another law. A business should be allowed to do that right now without getting sued. At moment protected class are given more rights than an individual who run a business. If you support gay marriage, fine, but don’t force business to support your view as well or be fined

Reminds me of my ethics class back in college. Always consider the law of unintended consequences.

Will the law allow or even promote the concept of businesses refusing Christians or Jews service?

While I am sure the intent of the law was/is well meaning, consider Gov. Brewer following statement

"I think anybody that owns a business can choose who they work with or who they don't work with," Brewer told CNN in Washington on Friday. "But I don't know that it needs to be statutory.

Flack jacket on!

I couldn’t see the actual polling part.

But if it’s set up the way I think it is, based on the article title and formatting, it could be massively confusing. This seems to be a poor poll.

Everybody should be able to do what they damn well want with THEIR property.

It’s called freedom of association, but we refuse to recognize that even for 1-person businesses. If a single person can discriminate as he wishes, his business should be allowed so, too.
