A survey conducted on behalf of Australia’s Liberal Party shows that support for same-sex marriage and for a conscience vote in the coalition government is at an all-time high, reports The Sydney Morning Herald.

The poll, commissioned by Australian Marriage Equality, found that 72% of Australians want same-sex marriage legalised, while 77% think coalition MPs should be granted a conscience vote.

Marriage equality advocates are expected to now start canvassing MPs to support same-sex marriage.

The poll results come after a recent interview in which Australian swimmer Ian Thorpe confirmed that he is gay and Liberal Democratic Senator David Leyonhjelm’s call to allow MPs a free vote on same-sex marriage.

    thats a rare public figure, an Aussie that doesn’t drink? not sure why that dude with the beard doesn’t just sit there instead of trying to talk the guy out of his good deed.

    The poll was NOT “conducted on behalf of Australia’s Liberal Party.” It was commissioned by Australian Marriage Equality and performed by the polling firm that the Liberal Party also uses.
