33 Percent Support Same-Sex Marriages

Compiled From Wire Services

A third of the nation’s voters believe that two people of the same sex should be allowed to get married if they love each other, a new poll showed Wednesday.

The poll found 33 percent believe same-sex marriages should be allowed, while 63 percent disagreed, EPIC-MRA-Mitchell Research said. Four percent were undecided.

Robin Kane, a spokeswoman for the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, said she found the 33 percent figure encouraging.

Glenn Clark, executive director of the Michigan Christian Coalition, said allowing the marriages would be “just another step toward eroding the moral fiber of our nation.”
