USA, Indiana: Poll Says Two Thirds Against Plan for Marriage Equality Constitutional Ban

Written by scott on September 24th, 2013

titleWow – Indiana really doesn’t want to add a ban on marriage equality to its constitution, if a new poll form Freedom Indiana is right.

The Journal-Gazette reports:

A new poll released Tuesday by Freedom Indiana shows almost two-thirds of Hoosiers believe amending the Indiana Constitution is the wrong way to address the issue of same-sex marriage. By 64 percent to 36 percent, voters oppose amending the constitution to ban same-sex marriage. “The message from these results is clear: Hoosiers overwhelmingly support some legal recognition for same-sex couples, and they oppose amending the Indiana Constitution to address the issue of same-sex marriage and rights,” said Freedom Indiana campaign manager Megan Robertson.

On the flip side, a conservative group is trying to pin down legislators’ stances on marriage equality.

Edge Boston reports:

A prominent conservative lobbying group is pushing for Indiana legislators to disclose what side they’ll take in next year’s expected vote on whether to put a ban on gay marriage into the state constitution. The survey sent by Advance America to legislators has a Thursday deadline. The Indianapolis Star reports (http://indy.st/1dDrGAt ) that’s a day before the state Senate’s majority Republicans have scheduled a private meeting.

Indiana is one of the last states that doesn’t either recognize marriage equality or have a constitutional ban in place.
