Do you think the debate going on in Kansas about how evolution is taught in the state's public schools is giving Kansas a reputation of being anti-science?

Poll results

Response Percent
Yes, and I agree with Kansas University’s provost that it’s damaged KU’s national reputation and made it tougher to recruit science faculty and top students.
 
39%
Yes. National media coverage tends to make it appear that most Kansans question evolution.
 
24%
Yes. I think it will hurt the state’s efforts at recruiting scientists and researchers to create a biosciences industry.
 
20%
No. The debate shows that Kansans are open to challenging accepted teachings in the search of truth.
 
7%
No. I disagree with those who say it is hurting the state’s efforts at building a biosciences industry and attracting science faculty. Kansas has much to offer anyone willing to come here.
 
4%
No. Kansas is just one of several states where evolution is being questioned.
