National Survey of 1,000 Likely Voters

Conducted March 30-31, 2015

By Rasmussen Reports


1* How closely have you followed recent news reports about religious freedom laws like the one recently adopted in Indiana?


2* A number of states have adopted or are considering laws that prohibit the government from forcing businesses to provide services they find objectionable on religious grounds. Do you favor or oppose a law in your state that would allow businesses to refuse service to customers for religious reasons?


3* Suppose a Christian wedding photographer has deeply held religious beliefs opposing same-sex marriage. If asked to work a same-sex wedding ceremony, should that wedding photographer have the right to say no?


4* How concerned are you that religious freedom laws will lead to widespread discrimination against gays and lesbians?


5* Do gay rights groups and the media accurately portray these religious freedom laws or do they make the laws sound more discriminatory than they really are?


6* How serious a problem is discrimination against gay and lesbian people in America today?


7* Is the government too sensitive to the concerns of racial, ethnic, religious and social minorities or not sensitive enough? Or is the level of government sensitivity about right?
