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.
