New National Poll: Majority of Tea Party, Majority of GOP, 1/3rd of Democrats Support Marriage!

 

Forget the push polls offered by MSNBC and CNN claiming a clear majority support redefining marriage. We know from 34 actual state votes on marriage and scores of polling this is not true. A new national poll commissioned by Fox reflects the reality that redefining marriage is hardly a consensus or even a majority:

American voters are split down the middle over whether same-sex marriage should be legalized, with the exact same percentage -- 46 percent -- in favor as opposed to it, according to the latest Fox News poll
.
... Most Democrats (64 percent) are in favor, while most Republicans are opposed (66 percent). Independents are more likely to favor same-sex marriage, 50 percent to 39 percent.

On the other hand, voters who regularly attend church services oppose gay marriage (65 percent), while over half of those who attend less frequently are in favor (53 percent).

... those most opposed include “very” conservatives (79 percent), Tea Partiers (76 percent) and white evangelical Christians (71 percent).

To further underscore the findings of the poll: Tea Partiers are pro-marriage, as are evangelical Christians. A strong majority of Republicans are pro-marriage, as are over a third of Democrats!

Our polling from last November has shown that, when the question is asked fairly, 60% of Americans agree marriage is the union of one man and one woman.
