The Gallup Poll on Public Attitudes
Toward Nude Beaches,
1983, repeated in 2000
“Do you believe that people who enjoy nude sun-bathing should be able to do so without interference from officials as long as they do so at a beach that is accepted for that purpose?
[Based on a Montana population of 900,000 there would be 644,400 Montanans who would vote “Yes” in 1983 and 720,000 in 2000.]
“Have you personally ever gone ‘skinnydipping’ or nude sunbathing in a mixed group of men and women either at a beach, at a pool or some where else?”
[Based on a Montana population of 900,000 there would be 132,300 Montanans who would have said “Yes” in 1983, and 225,000 in 2000. That translates into a tremendous growth potential for our group.]
