NEW POLL: Bipartisan Support for PRO Act in Arizona, Virginia and Other Key States

A new poll from More Perfect Union reveals that a majority of Arizonans and Virginians support the PRO Act, putting pressure on Sens. Sinema, Kelly and Warner to sign on

Workers rally for the PRO Act.

A new poll from More Perfect Union found that a majority of Americans support the PRO Act in 13 battleground states, including Arizona and Virginia – the only states with Democratic senators who have not co-sponsored the PRO Act. Virginia registers the highest support of the 13 swing states polled, with 64 percent in favor of passing the PRO Act. Nevertheless, Sen. Mark Warner (D-Va.) continues to refuse to co-sponsor the legislation, arguing in an interview recently that his “fear is that parts of the PRO Act tries to fit all work into a classic 20th century employment status.”In Arizona, 54 percent of those surveyed say they support the PRO Act. Speaking about the PRO Act at a recent event with the Chamber of Commerce, Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.) told the nation’s largest business lobbying group, “The way I make decisions on behalf of Arizona and for our constituents is by listening to the business leaders.” Sinema and Sen. Mark Kelly (D-Ariz.) are two of three Democratic senators who gave not co-sponsored the PRO Act despite bipartisan support in their state.

PRO Act Receives Bipartisan Support in Key States

Respondents were asked if they support or oppose the Protect the Right to Organize (PRO) Act, which makes it easier for workers to unionize.

More Perfect Union recently revealed that the Chamber of Commerce has been running paid fake “interview” segments on local news broadcasts in Arizona and Virginia.The survey also showed that 56 percent of West Virginians support the PRO Act. The widespread constituent support for the bill ultimately influenced Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) to reverse course and sign on to co-sponsor the legislation in late April. Similarly in Maine, Sen. Angus King (D-Maine) ultimately reversed his position and signed on. Survey results show that 63 percent of Mainers support the PRO Act.Nationally, 23 percent of people surveyed say they are unsure about the PRO Act, a high number which suggests more education around the bill is needed.
