Conducted by the Public Religion Research Institute, the poll found that of about 1,100 respondents, 61 percent, felt that “publicly-held corporations” should provide contraception as part of their free healthcare plans.

57 percent of respondents felt that “privately-owned corporations” should be compelled to do the same, while only a slight majority, 51 percent, believed small businesses should be required to do so.

“With the exception of churches and other places of worship, most Americans believe that employers should be required to provide their employees with healthcare plans that cover contraception at no cost,” reads a PRRI report released on Monday.
