A poll reveals that people of New Hampshire are strongly opposed to a repeal of gay marriage.

The survey, did by WMUR Granite State, shows that only 27% of adults of New Hampshire support gay marriage repeal , whereas 50% are strongly opposed to it (another poll in last February had given the same results).

Andrew Smith, director of the UNH Survey Center, said that "the New Hampshire public is not showing any strong desire to repeal this law."

And if a candidate would like to repeal it, the poll shows that 44% of New Hampshire adults are more likely to vote against a candidate who is in favor of repealing same-sex marriage.

14% said they were less likely to support a candidate who opposes repealing the law

38% said they thought it had a minor effect

47% said it had no effect

Among the Republicans and the conservatives, just 9% of Republicans and 11% of conservatives said they thought it had a major effect on the state.
