RALEIGH, (SGRToday.com) - News media and critics of House Bill 2 are in the video crosshairs of the North Carolina Republican Party. On Sunday the party released the video, which portrays the law as common sense privacy, not rocket science.

"Grown men shouldn't be in ladies' restrooms. See -- pretty simple," says the ad.

The video coincides with Monday's rally at the state capitol for H.B. 2 supporters. Socially conservative groups such as the N.C. Values Coalition, the N.C. Family Policy Council, and the Christian Action League are urging their supporters to attend.

The groups also say their noon-time event will feature victims of sexual assault expressing their concern over the view by H.B. 2 critics that men and women should be allowed to choose the bathroom associated with their identify and not their anatomy.

The video can be found on You Tube.

RALEIGH, (SGRToday.com) - Though there has been much controversy over House Bill 2's approval by the General Assembly and Gov. Pat McCrory, a new poll shows that 51 percent of registered voters agree with the move to overturn Charlotte's bathroom ordinance.

Time Warner Cable News data shows 40 percent said it was a bad idea and 9 percent weren't sure.

Charlotte's ordinance would have allowed transgendered individuals to use public restrooms, showers, and locker rooms of the gender with which they identify, not their biological sex.

Critics of House Bill 2's passage say it discriminates. Supporters say it is common sense privacy.

When asked if the new law would impact North Carolina's image, the data showed:

-- 23 percent positive effect
-- 46 percent negative effect
-- 26 percent makes no difference
-- 5 percent not sure
