New poll shows 84% of Arizonans agree with Schweikert

Scottsdale, AZ – A poll released this week by the Arizona Manufacturers Council indicates congressional candidate David Schweikert is in agreement with a solid majority of Arizonans who believe a secret ballot for union elections is essential to protect employees.

84 percent of those surveyed share Schweikert’s view that Harry Mitchell and his Democrat congressional leaders were wrong in voting for legislation that would strip workers of their right to vote in secret when authorizing a union in the workplace.

“Why is Harry Mitchell opposed to people retaining one of the most fundamental rights for which our Founders fought a revolution?” asked Schweikert.  “It’s a mystery how someone who spent years in a classroom presumably teaching children about the basic freedoms contained in our Constitution failed the lesson on the sanctity of a secret ballot.  Not only did he vote for this bill when it came up in the House of Representatives, but the incumbent was actually a co-sponsor.”

“The survey released by the Arizona Manufacturers Council demonstrates conclusively that Mitchell is out of touch with the people of Arizona and the Fifth District,” Schweikert added.  “An overwhelming number of Arizonans understand that the fairest and most effective method for secure elections is with a secret ballot and they don’t believe unions should be able to intimidate workers.  Mitchell and his Democrat leaders are working very hard to placate east-coast union bosses.  That’s not what Arizonans expect from their elected officials.  It’s time for a change in the Fifth District.”
