Oklahoma Women: We Want More Money for Parenting, Less Money for Surrogate Parenting

Is this a great state or what?

A scientific telephone survey of 1,000 likely voters registered in Oklahoma was conducted February 25 through March 8, 2010 by SoonerPoll, the same firm that conducts the “Oklahoma Poll” for the Tulsa World. The poll, which was commissioned by OCPA, has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.1 percentage points. The surveyor asked this question: 
"Now thinking about early-childhood policy in Oklahoma, assuming the state government had a limited amount of money, which of the following do you believe should take precedence?"
Among women, 25 percent of respondents said "increasing daycare subsidies for families when professional childcare is used for their young child(ren)." But 62 percent said "redirecting a portion of the daycare subsidies toward a tax break for families in which one parent stays home with young child(ren)." Thirteen percent were undecided.
