In the Rasmussen poll, 61 percent answered "yes" to the question: "If enough workers express interest in forming a union, a secret ballot is held. Is it fair to require a secret ballot to determine if workers want to form a union?" Eighteen percent said "no" and 22 percent were unsure.
OK, I can see how some might criticize that question as not giving enough context so maybe it doesn't necessarily refute the Gallup poll. But then there's this question: "Should Congress change the law to make it easier for workers to form or join a labor union?"
That is almost the same question Gallup asked.
Rasmussen found that a plurality, 40 percent, said "no." Thirty-three percent said "yes" and 27 percent were unsure.
Expect to see pro-business advocates tout these numbers while pro-EFCA and labor advocates blast the Gallup numbers.
There was a plus or minus 3 percentage point margin of error in the poll.
