Dem-Leaning Polling Firm: Over 60% in NC Support Marriage Amendment


Public Policy Polling:

PPP's first look at the proposed marriage amendment in North Carolina since the legislature placed it on the ballot finds it leading 61-34. Republicans are overwhelmingly in favor of it (80/17) and independents (52/43) and Democrats (49/44) support it as well, although by more narrow margins.

Among African Americans, 70% support the amendment with only 25% opposed.

Tami Fitzgerald of Raleigh, meanwhile, explains how a recent poll released by Elon University is deeply misleading.
