Poll: Majority of Latinos favor same-sex marriage


MIAMI — A new poll from NBC Latino/IBOPE Zogby released Wednesday finds that 60 percent of Latinos surveyed support same-sex marriage equality.

The survey says 6 out of 10 Latinos in the sample agree that same-sex couples have the right to marry. Thirty eight percent said they disagree and 31 percent said they did so strongly.

The statistics don’t mean there is complete acceptance of gays by Latinos, however.

When it came to the biggest disappointment a parent would feel regarding their children, 43 percent said it would be if their child became a drug addict.

Going to prison was the biggest disappointment for 33 percent of those surveyed. But 10 percent said having a gay child would be their biggest issue, while only 5 percent said a teen pregnancy would be their greatest disappointment.
