Gary Langer, who runs our polling unit, is one of those able people who has data on everything. Turns out we asked some questions of our own on stem cells in June, and the numbers are not far different from what the Johns Hopkins poll found:
Question: Do you support or oppose embryonic stem cell research?
Question: The Bush administration allows federal funding only for research on embryonic stem cell lines that existed in laboratories before August 2001. A proposed law would allow federal funding for research on stem cells from additional donated embryos that are left over from fertility clinics and would otherwise be discarded. Which do you prefer — (limited federal funding only for research on stem-cell lines that existed before August 2001), OR (broader federal funding for research on new stem cell lines)?
|Limited Funding||Broader Funding||Neither/No Funding (vol.)||No Opinion|
