Mexico: 52% Now Support Marriage Equality

Written by scott on November 23rd, 2013

titleA new poll in Mexico shows a majority now support marriage equality.

On Top Magazine reports:

According to a Parametria survey conducted in July, 52 percent of respondents support gay marriage, while 44 percent remain opposed. Fifty-two percent of Roman Catholics are also in support. That’s a thirteen point increase in support from a previous poll conducted in December of 2012. Fifty-seven percent of Mexicans (60% of Catholics) support gay troops serving openly in the military. Openly gay politicians are supported 49-45 percent.

And yet, support for gay adoption actually dropped, and 70% are opposed to it in Mexico. So it’s a bit of a mixed bag. We’ve seen this in a number of countries, where people are coming around on marriage, but not on adoption rights. I always thought it would happen the other way around.
