USA, Florida: 47% Now Support Marriage Equality
Written by scott on January 23rd, 2014
A new PPP poll out of Florida shoes that a plurality of Florida voters support marriage equality for the first time.
For the first time ever we find a plurality of Florida voters in support of gay marriage. 47% favor it to 44% who are opposed. That represents a 14 point shift from October of 2011 when we found the state against it by an 11 point margin at 37/48. Among respondents under the age of 45 there’s 58/34 support for gay marriage.
This as the state could see a ballot initiative (see our articles by Ned Flaherty on that) and just saw the start of a new lawsuit for marriage equality.
