USA, Nevada: Poll Says 57% Now Support Marriage Equality

Written by scott on October 4th, 2013

titleA new poll shows a surprisingly high number of Nevada residents now support marriage equality.

On Top Magazine reports:

A majority of Nevada voters say they support an effort to repeal the state’s ban on gay marriage. According to a survey of 500 likely voters in Nevada conducted by Moore Information, a Republican-leaning opinion firm, and paid for by the Retail Association of Nevada (RAN), 57 percent favor removing the Protection of Marriage provision approved in 2002 from the state constitution, while 36 percent remain opposed.

Of course, Nevada has always had a strong independent streak. A move is underway to repeal the ban, but it will require a second vote in the legislature in 2015 and a vote of the people in 2016. There’s also a lawsuit in play.
