…unlike the City Council, which passed a Resolution to boycott Arizona on Monday, a majority feel that the state shouldn’t be boycotted.
Here are the results of the SurveyUSA poll of 600 adults:
- 74% are familiar with the new law, 25% are not.
- Out of the 74% (442 adults) who are familiar with the law, 41% support it, while 55% oppose it.
- When asked if the city of Seattle should “officially support Arizona’s new immigration law? Officially oppose the law? Or take no official stance either way,” 31% say support, 45% say oppose, and 24% say the city should take no official stance.
- Finally, when asked if Seattle should continue to do business with companies in Arizona, or if it should boycott the state out of protest, 60% said “do business,” while only 34% said “boycott.”
Maybe there’s hope for Seattleites yet. Maybe.
