Zogby Poll showing that 79% of California residents support nude sunbathing.

The majority of people who responded to a statewide-poll said they support nude sunbathing at beaches that are designated for that purpose, according to a poll commissioned by the Naturist Education Foundation.

The foundation is the non-profit informational and educational adjunct to The Naturist Society, an organization that promotes clothing-optional recreation.

The same group of nudists recently lost a fight against state officials to keep San Onofre's Trail 6 a clothing-optional area. In September, the California Department of Parks and Recreation won a legal battle to ban nudity at the 1,000-foot stretch of the beach, which had held a 30-year tradition of nudity.

"I think this poll mainly shows that the Parks Department should go ahead and designate clothing-optional beaches in California because that's what the people of the state want.
