66% Oppose Religious Freedom Law Like Arizona’s

Most Americans don’t want a religious freedom law in their state like the one vetoed yesterday by Arizona Governor Jan Brewer, but they continue to strongly support a private photographer’s right to not photograph a same-sex wedding for religious reasons.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 20% of American Adults favor a law in their state that would allow businesses to refuse service to customers for religious reasons. Sixty-six percent (66%) oppose such a law in their state. Fourteen percent (14%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

California Conquers Partisan Chaos By Froma Harrop

California has found a formula for ending the partisan warfare that once paralyzed its government: Get rid of one of the parties, in this case, the Republican. The state's famously dysfunctional government now hums with calm efficiency.

Democrats there hold a supermajority in the state Legislature, making it well-nigh impossible for Republicans to gum up their plans. The governor, Jerry Brown, is a Democrat, as well.

55% Think Some States May Be Declaring Bankruptcy Soon

Following news of Detroit’s bankruptcy filing, most Americans believe some states are likely to do the same soon. They're more supportive, too, of letting states declare bankruptcy if they can't pay their bills.

Fifty-five percent (55%) of American Adults believe that it’s at least somewhat likely that some states will file for bankruptcy in the near future, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey. Just 34% view this as unlikely. This includes 27% who consider it Very Likely that there will be states declaring bankruptcy soon and just five percent (5%) who say it’s Not At All Likely.
