A new Public Policy Polling poll shows that support for marriage equality has improved in Nevada to 47 percent, with 42 percent opposed, up from 45-44 a year ago. More dramatically, 80 percent of voters support at least civil unions for same-sex couples — up from 77 percent — with only 17 percent opposed to any form of relationship recognition. On Top Magazine noticed that there was a sharp increase in marriage equality support among African-Americans, increasing from 21 percent to 47 percent, likely reflecting President Obama’s endorsement this past May.
