PROVO, Utah — A poll released Monday by Brigham Young University’s Center for the Study of Elections and Democracy found that 43 percent of respondents surveyed thought civil unions should be legal, while 28 per cent wanted full marriage equality.
Conversely, the survey results showed that only 29 percent were opposed to any form of legal recognition, a substantial drop from 54 pecent in 2004.
“We’re getting massive change in public opinion in a very short period of time,” he said.
Survey data from Gallup, Pew, and New York Times/CBS all show that Americans are now more likely to agree with the administration than they were just a few years ago.
The survey was based on election exit polls and surveys of voter panels derived from exit polls at four time points beginning in 2004.
