Australia: New Poll Shows 64% Support Marriage Equality

Written by scott on August 7th, 2012

New York Gay Marriage PollSupport for marriage equality is at record levels, according to a new poll, with further pressure set to be heaped on Coalition Leader Tony Abbott with support for the reform amongst Coalition voters also at a new high.

The poll comes as a new ad campaign has been produced by marriage equality advocates to emphasise that “marriage is about family, everyone’s family.”

The Galaxy poll commissioned by Australian Marriage Equality (AME) found a majority of Coalition voters (52 per cent) now support same-sex marriage laws. Just over 40 per cent of respondents also said they would be more likely to vote for the Coalition should Abbott allow a conscience vote on the issue.
