Poll: Idaho backs ag-gag ruling

Monday means more polling data courtesy of Idaho Politics Weekly. This week, they found a slight majority of Idahoans support the recent court ruling overturning the "ag gag" or "ag security/biosecurity" law, as its opponents and supporters respectively call it, and a plurality are opposed to fetal tissue research. The poll, done by Salt Lake City-based Dan Jones and Associates, found that 53 percent of the 508 adults polled in late August approve of Judge B. Lynn Winmill's ruling overturning the law banning secret filming of agricultural operations. Thirty-two percent opposed the ruling and 16 percent didn't know/Nathan Brown, Twin Falls Times-News.
