The distinction between public or private opinion polling and government overseen voter opportunities is somewhat illusive. Perhaps when it comes to government-sanctioned "polling" the end result may be more reasonably justified if the ends do have some bright-line of mandatory or legally-binding result if the effort and taxpayer money is to be conducted to obtain voter opinions. Therefore, I would tend to support the Utah Supreme Court decision in this case.

When there is a conflict of legislation and laws then the laws supported by our rights and freedoms shall have presidence. This is the problem with Utah and federal laws, legislation has erased our right to representation and redress of elected officials, its called indemnification which absolve elected officials of accountability and used to keep citizens from expecting representation. This indemnification law has been the backbone law to discriminate against citizens rights.
