This is interesting.
A new survey shows that 63% of LGBT Americans, a clear majority of those polled, oppose Arizona’s strict new immigration law set to take effect next month. By contrast, the poll found that about 60% of straight adults support the law.
According to Harris Interactive, which polled 2,698 U.S. adults online between May 10 and May 10, the results hold economic implications for Arizona, especially in the area of tourism.
“These polarized opinions also appear to influence consideration for Arizona as a future travel destination. Among the LGBT respondents who have seen, heard or read about the new law, 43% say they would be less likely to travel to the state for leisure, and 36% said they would be less likely to travel there for convention gatherings. 32% of LGBT adults also added that they would be less likely to travel to Arizona for other business purposes.”
