A majority of Coloradans support legalizing gay marriage, a new survey has found. According to a poll of 542 Colorado voters released Friday by Public Polling Policy, 53 percent of respondents support the institution, while 40 percent say marriage should remain a union exclusive to heterosexual couples.
An overwhelming number of respondents also preferred marriage (47%) over civil unions (28%) for gay couples. Only 22 percent said there should be no legal recognition whatsoever for the relationships of gay couples.
“Colorado is another in a growing number of states where polls show voters are rapidly shifting towards supporting legal gay marriage,” Dean Debnam, president of Public Policy Polling, said in releasing the poll’s findings.
