New poll on gay marriage ban

Bookmark and Share

A new Public Policy Polling survey echoes an Elon University poll that came out earlier this week showing a majority of North Carolinians oppose a state constitutional ban on gay marriage. PPP found 52 percent of those surveyed support greater rights for same-sex relationships. The new poll also carves out a couple of interesting slices: Senior citizens are the only age group with a majority (54 percent) that opposes any legal recognition for same-sex couples. Independent voters are even more supportive of the issue than Democrats, with 64 percent of them in favor. A bill is pending in the General Assembly to write a ban into the constitution.
