Poll Shows Opposition Is Falling In Kentucky

Written by 



A new poll shows that opposition to equal marriage has fallen dramatically in Kentucky and is at its lowest level since 2004.

In 2004, voters approved a constitutional amendment defining marriage as a union between a man and a woman. 10 years later, what progress!

In 2004, Bluegrass Poll conducted a poll which revealed that 70% of people resident in Kentucky opposed equal marriage. Today, Bluegrass shows that there are only 50% opposed to it. Bluegrass especially notes the 5% drop since February 2014.

In addition, by comparing the two polls, Bluegrass found that the percentages lost to the opposition not become percentages of people who have no opinion on the matter but have became percentages of support for equal marriage.

So who supports more marriage equality in Kentucky?

As usual, women, young people between 18 and 34 years old and residents of Louisville, Lexington, and northern Kentucky are more in favor of marriage for same-sex couples that people over 50 years old, Republicans and residents of eastern Kentucky.

Starting next week, August 6th, the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals will hear arguments from both challenges against the ban on equal marriage in Kentucky.
