WA Poll Shows Strong Marriage Support
A just-published poll out of Washington state shows a wide lead for the good guys, should marriage be forced onto the November ballot.
A new, independent, statewide poll finds that an overwhelming majority of voters approve of the Washington’s law extending civil marriage to same-sex couples. Washington voters approve of the law by a 54-33% margin. In addition to extraordinary support by Democrats (87%), the poll also found significant support among Independents, nearly mirroring the full poll, at 52-36%. Next week, Washington United for Marriage expects opponents to submit more than enough signatures to put the existing law allowing committed same-sex couples to marry in Washington up for referendum in November. The poll was taken May 22-24 of 500 voters, with a margin of error of 4.4 percent.
