Wisconsin poll: Marriage equality has had no adverse affect

Staff Reports

A majority of Wisconsin voters across all demographics said that the legalization of same-sex marriage in the state has had no effect at all on their life.

A survey of 1,071 Wisconsin voters conducted by Public Policy Polling found 70 percent of all respondents saying last year’s court decisions overturning the state’s ban on same-sex marriage didn’t affect them personally.

Even among Republican voters, 74 percent responded that granting marriage rights to same-sex couples hadn’t had an adverse impact on their life.

Among those who said it did have an effect, 18 percent said it was a negative one and 12 percent rated it positive.
