Georgia voting law changes are OK with Americans, 42% to 36%: poll

MLB All-Star game to be played in Denver after leaving Georgia

Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp tells ‘The Ingraham Angle’ Colorado has more restrictive voting laws than Georgia

More Americans support Georgia’s new voting law than oppose it, according to a poll.

The law that prompted Major League Baseball to relocate this year’s All-Star Game from Atlanta to Denver was supported by 42% of survey respondents while 36% percent opposed it, according to Morning Consult.

In addition, less than 40% of the adults surveyed supported MLB’s move to relocate the game, the organization reported.

Support for the relocation was stronger, however, among self-described MLB fans (48%) and among self-described “avid” MLB fans (62%), the results said.

Other results appeared to show a clear divide between respondents based on their political affiliation.

For example, 65% of Democrats favored the game being relocated while only 14% of Republicans approved of the move.

Among independents, the most frequent response to the game’s relocation was “Don’t know/No opinion,” with 43% of independents answering that way. Supporters and opponents were equally split, 29% to 29% among the non-affiliated.

As for racial lines, a quarter of Whites and a quarter of people of color both supported the relocation of the game, while opposition to the move was stronger among Whites, with 32% in opposition versus 20% for people of color.
