A new poll from Franklin & Marshall College has found that a majority of Pennsylvania voters — 52 percent — support allowing same-sex couples to legally marry, while only 41 percent oppose it. A Quinnipiac poll just two weeks ago found similar favorability for marriage equality, but by a much closer 47-43 split. Though Pennsylvania does not have a constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage, such unions are still not recognized under state law. Support will likely continue to increase in the Keystone state not only because of national trends, but because of the neighboring influence of New York, New Jersey, Delaware, and Maryland, which all have either marriage equality or civil unions that could become marriage equality quite soon.
