Poll: Contrary to (un)popular belief, bias is not in fashion

by Jeremy Hooper

A new Gallup poll suggests that despite the lies and misrepresentations that have been offered up by the opposition and a promise from dear sweet president Bush that he'll veto such legislation, an overwhelming majority of Americans are in favor of federal hate crimes protections that include gender, sexual orientation, and gender identity. The question posed by the poll was this:

There is a proposal to expand federal hate crime laws to include crimes committed on the basis of the victim's gender, sexual orientation, or gender identity. Would you favor or oppose expanding the federal hate crime laws in this way?

The breakdown:

Maygall-1

So it's official: The America to which Bush and his far right allies now speak to, cater to, and serve, is a portion that's hovering around 1/3 of the actual nation:

Picture 21-4

But hey, when leading and forming ideas for a nation, you have to ask yourself: "What Portion of the Populace Would Jesus Discredit?"
