Kentucky Marriage Equality Poll Shows Opposition Dropped 22% in 10 Years

titleWhile we’ve still got a ways to go in the state, according to a new Kentucky marriage equality poll, the numbers are encouraging.

USA Today reports:

Results from the latest Bluegrass Poll, released Tuesday, show 50 percent of registered voters in Kentucky oppose same-sex marriage, while 37 percent favor it and 12 percent remain unsure. That’s a drop from the 55 percent who said they opposed gay marriage in February and a sharp decline from the 72 percent that voted in favor of a ban in 2004 — when the state constitution was amended to define marriage as between a man and a woman. “We’ve hit a bit of a threshold, and I think the tipping point is soon to follow,” said Chris Hartman, director of the Fairness Campaign. “The opposition has been teetering on the edge of having a majority for a long time, and that ground is rapidly slipping out from under them.”

Wow – opposition is down 22 points since 2004, and 5 points just since February! Amazing.

    Why is Kentucky insisting on staying behind all the states that accept same sex marriage. Everyone should be allowed to love whomever they chose and it does NOT interfere with your marriage or your life. Let everyone have the same chance as everyone else has. It is the ONLY fair thing to do.
