    Poll: Americans oppose weaker unions
    By Dennis Cauchon, USA TODAY Updated
    MADISON, Wis. — Americans strongly oppose laws taking away the collective bargaining power of public employee unions, according to a new USA TODAY/Gallup Poll. The poll found 61% would oppose a law in their state similar to such a proposal in Wisconsin, compared with 33% who would favor such a law.

    Hummm, square that with this;

    As the nation’s eyes fix upon the fascinating battle in Wisconsin, pitting the Republican Governor Scott Walker against public employee union, a poll from the non-partisan Clarus Research Group suggests that most Americans would probably be on the governor’s side on this issue.

    Clarus' nationwide study found that 64 percent of American people think state workers should not be able to join labor unions.

    So is the group cited in the OP. I would imagine that nearly everyone is familiar with The Gallup Poll.

    Sure am,

    PRINCETON, NJ -- Gallup finds organized labor taking a significant image hit in the past year. While 66% of Americans continue to believe unions are beneficial to their own members, a slight majority now say unions hurt the nation's economy. More broadly, fewer than half of Americans -- 48%, an all-time low -- approve of labor unions, down from 59% a year ago.

    This is this. This isn't something else. This is this. And what this is about is the Gallup poll showing Americans in big numbers DO NOT WANT a law like the reactionary one being proposed in Wisconsin for their own state.

    btw - the Clarus research group has exactly two employees and revenues of under a million dollars a year. that hardly places them in the same universe - let alone the same league as Gallup.
