Is same-sex marriage gaining support in the conservative state of Pennsylvania? A new poll finds that exactly half — 50% — of Pennsylvania residents support a constitutional amendment to allow same-sex marriage, and even more support civil unions for same-sex couples. The new poll, by Pennsylvania’s Franklin & Marshall College, asks, “The state legislature is considering several proposals related to gay marriage and civil unions. Would you favor or oppose a constitutional amendment that would allow homosexual couples to get legally married?” 50% said yes, up eight points in just two years, while 42% said no.
Note the wording of the poll is far from leading, and if anything, even Maggie Gallagher will tell you she prefers the term “homosexual couples” because that tends to get less support than “same-sex couples.”
Franklin & Marshall (F&M) also asked, “Would you favor or oppose a state law that would allow homosexual couples to legally form civil unions, giving them some of the legal rights of married couples?” 62% said yes, 34% said no.
