FOX 5 Poll: School bathrooms directive

A FOX 5/Opinion Savvy poll shows that Georgians overwhelming oppose President Barack Obama's administration in their directive to public schools that must allow students to use facilities consistent with their gender identity rather than their gender at birth.

Over half of the respondents disapproved of White House directive. Likely voters in the upcoming presidential election who were surveyed were also spilt on government intervention in the matter.
