Tennesseans liking Bredesen, Legislature more, fundamentalists less

The second wave of information from the Spring 2007 MTSU Poll, featuring Tennesseans’ views on Gov. Phil Bredesen and the Tennessee Legislature, various Protestant denominations, and the death penalty, is now available at the poll’s Web site, www.mtsusurveygroup.org.

In just three of the poll’s hottest topics:

Respondents rate nondenominational Christians and mainline Protestants higher than evangelicals or fundamentalists, despite the state’s reputation as the “buckle of the Bible Belt”;

Approval of Tennessee’s governor and the state Legislature are trending upward;

A majority of respondents support the death penalty, but a plurality also approves a temporary suspension of the practice to review procedures; and

Most think global warming is a serious problem and many think former Vice President Al Gore deserves the Nobel Prize for his work to promote awareness of and solutions for the problem.

Naturally, I had to check out who they were polling and, lo and behold, if you read the summery, you figure it out.
