54%: The percentage of USian respondents to a new Reuters/Ipsos poll who say that businesses should not be allowed to refuse services on the basis of sexual orientation.
The poll found solid opposition to allowing businesses to refuse services or refuse to hire people or groups based on religious beliefs.

Fifty-four percent said it was wrong for businesses to refuse services, while 28 percent said they should have that right. And 55 percent said businesses should not have the right to refuse to hire certain people or groups based on the employer's religious beliefs, while 27 percent said businesses should have the right.
27/28% is still far too many. But this just goes to show how wildly out of step with the majority these bullshit laws and their bullshit proponents really are.
