Poll finds California Support growing for the Freedom to Marry
March 25, 2010
As reported by Matthew S. Bajko in the Bay Area Reporter:
"The creep toward majority support of same-sex marriage in California continues, as a new statewide poll has found that 50 percent of residents of the Golden State now support marriage equality.
"According to the Public Policy Institute of California, a majority of the state's residents are more likely to support same-sex marriage than to oppose it, with those against marriage equality at 45 percent. It is the first time a PPIC poll has found more than 45 percent support for same-sex marriage since it began asking about marriage equality in 2000.
"In terms of likely voters, the PPIC poll found a "record high" of 49 percent who favor same-sex marriage and 45 percent who oppose it. The findings bode well for LGBT activists who are trying to repeal Proposition 8, the ban against same-sex marriage California voters passed in 2008."
