Fifty-four percent of the 600 registered voters the Global Strategy Group surveyed between Feb. 12-14 said they support nuptials for gays and lesbians, compared to 37 percent of respondents who opposed them. Sixty percent of those who live in New Castle County, which includes Wilmington, back same-sex marriage. The poll, which has a margin of error of +/- 4 percent, also found 61 percent of Independents and 65 percent of Democrats support the issue. And 75 percent of Republicans said same-sex marriage in Delaware would not negatively impact their lives.
The Governor has indicated he would sign the bill.
