New Poll Shows Majority in Pennsylvania Support Marriage Equality


A new poll out from Franklin & Marshall College shows that a majority of Pennsylvanians — 52 percent — support marriage equality, while 41 percent oppose it.

Think Progress reports that similar favorability, though not by as wide a margin, was seen in a Quinnipiac poll released two weeks ago. They add:

Though Pennsylvania does not have a constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage, such unions are still not recognized under state law. Support will likely continue to increase in the Keystone state not only because of national trends, but because of the neighboring influence of New York, New Jersey, Delaware, and Maryland, which all have either marriage equality or civil unions that could become marriage equality quite soon.
