USA, Texas: New Poll On Marriage Equality Shows 34% Favor Marriage Equality

Written by scott on July 9th, 2013

titleBut really, isn’t it time to drop the whole “Civil Unions” part of these polls and just ask about full marriage equality? The Dallas Voice reports:

A recent poll by Public Policy Polling found that 63 percent of Texas voters believe same-sex couples should be allowed to marry or form civil unions in the Lone Star State. The poll found that 34 percent support marriage equality, which is lower than a recent University of Texas/Texas Tribune poll. Support is still lagging among black and Republican voters, according to the PPP poll.

It seems to me that including the choice for Civil Unions skews the poll by giving folks on the fence an easy way out – inflating total support but tanking support for full marriage equality. Anyone else agree?

  1. Ned Flaherty says:

    Civil unions and domestic partnerships are unconstitutional, because they deny human and civil rights to an entire section of society for no valid reason.

    This was clearly explained in the U.S. Supreme Court ruling on 28 June when DOMA Section 3 was permanently overturned nationwide.
