- 2010 CNN National Exit Poll – Americans oppose SSM 54% to 40%
- August 2010 Fox News Poll - only 37% support SSM given choice between SSM/CU/no recognition
- August 2010 Public Policy Institute Poll - 33% favor SSM while 57% oppose it
The PPI poll is the only one of these which uses an automated response system. We suspect that given recent election results opposing gay marriage--and also the hatred now directed at people who stand up for marriage--that this may be the most accurate gauge of actual sentiment.
