Indiana Poll: Govenor’s Ratings Drop After ‘Religious Freedom’ Law Fiasco

By Kyle Cheney and Steven Shepard

INDIANA---The “religious freedom” law signed by Indiana Gov. Mike Pence has taken a toll on the potential presidential candidate’s image in his home state, according to a poll released Thursday that shows most Hoosiers think the law was not necessary. The poll, conducted by the Republican firm Bellwether Research for Howey Politics Indiana, an in-state newsletter, pegs Pence’s approval rating at 45 percent — while just as many, 46 percent, disapprove. Pence’s approval rating is down from 62 percent in February. [link]
