NEW: Brown Poll Says Most RI Voters Support Same-Sex Marriage

Thursday, February 28, 2013

 

Brown University says over 60 percent of the state in favor of same-sex marriage.

Two weeks after a poll by the National Organization for Marriage found that 78 percent of Rhode Island voters wanted to decide the issue of same-sex marriage at the polls, a new survey by Brown University has revealed that the vast majority of voters in the Ocean State are in favor of the hot-button social issue.

A new statewide public opinion survey conducted by the Taubman Center for Public Policy at Brown University found that 60.4 percent of respondents favor granting the right to marry to gay and lesbian couples, a number nearly identical to a similar poll run by the university three years ago.

Not surprisingly, proponents of same-sex marriage in the state were quick to respond.

“Today’s announcement from the Taubman Center is another demonstration of the strong and growing support our grassroots campaign to win marriage is building across Rhode Island,” said Ray Sillivan, the campaign director for Rhode Islanders United for Marriage. “Every day, our volunteers connect more and more constituents with their legislators. This poll affirms what we are hearing on the phones and at people's doors - a growing majority of Rhode Islanders strongly support marriage equality.”

In addition, the poll also showed that voters continue to have a negative view about the state’s economy and “most express little confidence that state government officials will make the right decisions for the state’s future.”
