The Libertas Institute, a libertarian think tank, on Thursday released results of a voters poll covering the National Security Agency, alcohol sales and polygamy.
Click here to read the poll results. Here’s a synopsis: Utah voters are generally OK with the NSA’s new Utah Data Center, but not so much the NSA’s data collection and they want to reduce the legal limit to drive to a .05 blood-alcohol level but want to ease alcohol restrictions.
If those positions sound in some conflict, then here comes voter uniformity: those surveyed opposed polygamy.
Voters want Kody Brown to lose his lawsuit seeking to decriminalize bigamy; they believe there remains justification to keep polygamy illegal, 61 percent believe polygamy is morally wrong.
Only a question about the "Zion Curtain" for drink mixing drew a stronger response in the poll.
Brown may still win his lawsuit, but it seems polygamists have a long way to go to win hearts and minds.
