According to a new independent poll conducted by Texas Tech, for the first time more Texans support marriage equality than oppose it. But only barely. “In the past, support for gay marriage in this state was below 40 percent,” he said. “Now, were closely divided on the issue. 48 percent of Texans think gay marriage should be recognized whereas 47 percent are against. Democrats and Independents strongly support gay marriage, while Republicans are strongly opposed to it.” The poll also shows that 44% of Texans approve of the Tea Party.
When we’re at the point where almost half of Texans support marriage equality, you know things have shifted.
