The First Amendment Center’s State of the First Amendment: 2014 survey asked,
The Supreme Court has ruled that corporations, like people, have certain free speech rights. Do you think that corporations similarly should or should not have certain religious freedoms?
The result: A 3-to-1 margin (66 percent to 22 percent, with 12 percent saying they didn’t know or refused to answer) for “yes.” Of course, this doesn’t tell us precisely what religious freedoms people think corporations should have.
