A new poll in
Illinois shows that most people in the state don't
want the Illinois or U.S. constitutions rewritten to
ban same-sex marriage. While the majority of state
voters--51%--said they oppose marriage equality,
only 40% support asking state lawmakers for a
constitutional amendment to ban it.
Fifty percent were opposed to amending the state
constitution to ban same-sex marriage, and 10% were
undecided. There is even less support for amending the
U.S. Constitution, with 62% opposing it.
The poll was conducted by the Chicago-based
Glengariff Group. (Sirius OutQ News)
