POLL: Colorado Civil Unions Enjoy Wide Support

In the wake of last month’s brouhaha when Colorado Republican leadership blocked civil unions from advancing, a new Public Policy Polling poll shows that 56 percent of Coloradans continue to support the measure, with 38 percent opposed. Civil unions are particularly popular among Hispanic voters (65-32) and young voters (66-35). In fact, the only age group opposed to civil unions is voters over 65, who are split 48 percent against, 45 percent in favor.
