More people in Nevada oppose marriage equality than support it, according to a statewide poll conducted by The Las Vegas Review-Journal and KLAS-TV.
The poll results, released Saturday, show that 46% oppose marriage equality, 35% support it, and 19% are undecided. This compares to the two-thirds of residents who approved a constitutional ban on same-sex marriage in 2002.
Candice Nichols of The Gay and Lesbian Community Center of Southern Nevada says she is encouraged that the results show a softening of opposition when compared to the 2002 numbers.
