Gay Marriage Poll

Poll shows Ohioans oppose recognition for same-sex marriages

A Columbus Dispatch poll has found Ohioans oppose legal recognition of same-sex marriages by a margin of three-to-one but that only 60 percent would support a constitutional amendment banning them. The poll of 33-hundred-44 randomly selected state residents was conducted from March 23rd through last Wednesday and has a margin of error of two percentage points. The poll found nearly 80 percent of those who say they support President Bush's re-election favor the amendment. Only 42 percent of those behind Senator John Kerry say they would support it. Central Ohio respondents showed the least support for the proposed amendment, while the strongest support came from residents in southeast Ohio.
