New Support for HR 2015
A study conducted this summer by Fabrizio, McLaughlin and Associates shows that even Republican voters believe that firing someone simply due to sexual orientation status is wrong. 77% of the Republican voters polled believe that such discrimination at work is wrong. The most fascinating part of the study is that 67% of "moral" voters, including born again christians and evangelical christians agree. See Houston Chronicle Article from Sept. 21.
This lends even more support for HR 2015, a bill that would prohibit workplace discrimination based on sexual orientation. See my earlier post on HR 2015. Hopefully, this evidence will persuade legislators to pass the bill, however, in my opinion, it is unlikely that these Republican voters feel strongly enough about the issue to mobilize in support of the bill.
