Poll: Record Percentage of Voters Support Marriage Equality In California
According to a poll conducted by the Public Policy Institute of California, a record amount of voters now support marriage equality in the state, 56 percent, as opposed to 38 percent who believe that it should remain illegal. This marks a record high, and confirms numbers reported by another marriage equality poll conducted earlier this year.
The group’s president, Mark Baldassare, gave even more good news when commenting to Bloombarg:
“The more that there’s been acceptable and legal change in other states, the more Californians have been accepting, especially among some of those groups that were strongly opposed.”
This news comes just weeks before the Supreme Court’s ruling on Proposition 8, the same-sex marriage ban that was approved by California voters in 2008. The ruling is due out by the end of the Court’s term next month.
