USA, Indiana: New Poll Shows That 58% Oppose Constitutional Ban on Marriage Equality

Written by scott on November 15th, 2013

titleA new poll out of Indiana shows that voters are opposed to the proposed constitutional ban on marriage equality.

Think Progress reports:

A new poll shows that a majority of Indiana voters oppose amending the state constitution to ban same-sex marriage, with 58 percent opposing the proposed amendment while just 38 percent support it. Opposition increased 4 points from 54 percent last year, while opposition remained steady. Even 40 percent of Republicans oppose the amendment. Hoosiers are still split, however, on whether the state should have marriage equality. A plurality of 48 percent support legally recognizing same-sex couples’ marriages, but a close 46 percent remain opposed.

So a majority of voters has not yet actually embraced marriage equality, but they’re getting very close. Will the GOP listen? Or will they go ahead and push through this bill to send the ban to the voters next year?

    What is the matter with this website? The poll shows 58% in opposition to the amendment, not 50% as the headline says.
