USA, South Carolina: New Poll Shows Opposition to Marriage Equality Has Dropped to 52%

Written by scott on November 5th, 2013

titleOpposition to marriage equality in South Carolina appears to be dropping quickly.

The Washington Post reports:

There’s a fascinating new poll number out of South Carolina that tells you everything you need to know about where the politics of same-sex marriage in the country are headed and why Republicans need to be very careful with how they handle the issue in the coming years. The number is 52 percent — as in the percentage of South Carolinians who believe that marriages between same-sex couples should not be recognized under law, according to a new Winthrop University poll conducted for The State newspaper. But, consider this: In 2006, the Palmetto State passed a constitutional amendment outlawing gay marriage with 78 percent of the vote. (Always worth noting: A single poll is just that.)

That’s amazing – a 16 point drop in seven years. Where will they be by 2020?
