Thirteen percent favor neither side or have no opinion.


"As you may know, Wisconsin and other states have been in the news because of disputes between the governors and state employee labor unions over collective bargaining policies and the state's budget. ... In states where there are such disputes, would you say you agree more with -- the governors or the state employee labor unions?"
