HB109 seeks to tighten the rules on cockfighting in Georgia, much like was done in the wake of the Michael Vick dog fighting fiasco. As I mentioned yesterday, an InsiderAdvantage/RosettaStone poll shows strong support for dealing with cockfighting.
Question – As you may have heard, In 2008 the Georgia legislature closed loopholes in the state’s dog fighting law by passing a bill that banned possession of a dog for the purposes of fighting and knowingly attending a dog fight. The legislature is currently considering closing similar loopholes in the state’s cockfighting law. What is your opinion of this proposed legislation? Do you favor or oppose closing similar loopholes in the states cockfighting law?
Favor closing loopholes in the state’s cockfighting laws: 75.3%
Oppose closing loopholes in the state’s cockfighting laws: 10.0%
No Opinion: 14.6%
80.7% of Republicans support the tougher restrictions as opposed to 64.1% of Democrats. Why don’t Democrats love chickens? 😉
