POLL: 60 Percent Oppose North Carolina’s Discriminatory Amendment One

A new poll from Elon University finds that 60 percent of North Carolina voters oppose Amendment One, a proposed constitutional revision that would ban same-sex marriage, civil unions, and domestic partnerships. The seemingly conflicting polling from recent weeks reflects a general lack of understanding about the full impact of the measure. This poll found that 66 percent support at least civil unions or partnerships for same-sex couples, so when asked if they would ban all legal recognition of their relationships, it makes sense that such a strong majority opposes the amendment. There are 37 days until the May 8 vote to continue educating North Carolinians about just how far-reaching Amendment One truly is.
