Poland: New Poll Shows Poles Disagree With Walesa on Gays

Written by scott on March 11th, 2013

PolandJust last week, Activist and Former Polish President Lech Walesa said gays in parliament should have to sit in the back, or behind a wall, and claimed that 95% of Poles agreed with him. Not so fast, as Pink News reports:

The new poll carried out by the Homo Homini research institute found that only 31% of Polish people agreed with Lech Walesa’s remarks, as opposed to the 95%, which he claimed. The survey found that 59% of Poles did not agree with Walesa’s statement, with 10% saying they did not know.

This is especially surprising given the low level of support marriage equality received in Poland in a recent poll. Surprising but gratifying.
