Statements about Polls and Public Opinion

Says gubernatorial candidate Clay Pell "hasn't spent a dime on advertising."

"Seventy-four percent of Rhode Islanders support [a] national popular vote [for president] because they, as I, believe in one person-one vote."

"Only 14 percent of Catholics agree with the Vatican's position that abortion should be illegal."

"Every poll you see, the overwhelming majority of people want [E-Verify]."

The polls "show over half of Americans identify themselves as being pro-life."

"What is the proper collective noun for a group of baboons? Believe it or not . . . a Congress!"

"The people of Rhode Island don't want same-sex marriage."

"Public sentiment in favor of collective bargaining and in favor of the unions has actually gone up as these governors, I think, have overreached and gone too far and tried to destroy the labor movement."
