Polls shows support for marriage equality increasing

Polls shows support for marriage equality increasing

Box Turtle Bulletin reports:

Happiness is when reality exceeds your expectations. Apparently the National Organization “for” Marriage has officially lowered its expectations.

Over on their blog, NOM is happily touting a new poll in a post called, New Quinnipiac Poll: Majority Does NOT Support SSM:


The latest Quinnipiac poll:

Would you support or oppose a law in your state that would allow same-sex couples to get married?

Oppose: 48%

Support: 46%

Don’t Know/NA: 6%

Among Republicans:

Oppose: 72%

Support: 24%

Don’t Know/NA: 4%

Not so long ago, they’d have despaired at a slim margin like that. But with poll over poll over poll showing majority support for marriage equality, these numbers are the happiest news they can find.

The problem for NOM is that all the trends are running the opposite of how they wish the polls would run. And they leave out some essential details. Read it all here.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
