Sixty-two percent of Montana voters “want same-sex couples to have legal equality, including 84 percent of Democrats, 65 percent of independents, and 39 percent of Republicans,” but 51 percent still oppose marriage equality, a new Public Policy Polling survey finds. Earlier this year, Republicans in the legislature were forced to pull a bill that would have invalidated municipal laws that prohibit discrimination against gay people (and other minorities not mentioned in Montana’s Human Rights Act) “because it lacked support from GOP leadership.”
