A recent nationwide Gallup poll finds the nation is evenly split regarding federal funding of embryonic stem cell research. This is despite pollsters not providing a key context element that identifies how much federal money is already going toward adult stem cell research. Also, nearly 6 in 10 Republicans support the president's current policy.
A veto-proof margin by the Senate to fund embryonic stem cell research clearly would be out of step with the American public. Please, tell me about that "cooling saucer" bit again.
