Majority Of Coloradans Support Civil Unions And Marriage Equality


A new poll finds that 62 percent of Colorado voters support proposed legislation that would create same-sex civil unions with only 32 percent opposed. Such a measure failed last year and though it was projected to fare much better this year, there are less than four weeks left in the legislative session for it to advance. The Public Policy Polling survey also found that a 53 percent majority supports full marriage equality, while only 40 percent believe it should be illegal. Independents and voters under the age of 30 supported marriage equality by very wide margins.
