A new poll shows
that a majority of registered voters in Connecticut
support same-sex marriage, which the state's supreme court
legalized in October. According to a Quinnipiac
University poll released Wednesday, 52% of voters
support the ruling, 39% oppose it, and 9% are undecided,
majority -- 61% -- oppose banning same-sex marriage via a
state constitutional amendment, the paper reports.
Marriage-equality foes had hoped voters would approve
a constitutional convention so state legislators
could discuss the matter, but the proposal failed at
the ballot box on Election Day.
The poll surveyed
1,445 registered voters December 11-15 and has a margin
of error of 2.6 percentage points. (Advocate.com)
