POLL: Oregon Voters Support Marriage Equality


Last week, a Public Policy Polling survey found that voters in Oregon narrowly support marriage equality with 46 percent in favor and 45 percent opposed. Support was polarized across partisan lines, with Democrats supporting the freedom to marry 74-20 while Republicans oppose it 11-80. Still, a full 74 percent support some form of legal recognition for same-sex couples through either marriage (44 percent) or civil unions (30 percent), with only 23 percent saying no rights should be afforded.
