Polls Find Support for Gay Marriage Ruling

November 24, 2003|From Times Wire Reports

Two new polls show Massachusetts lawmakers could be bucking public opinion if they try to thwart the Supreme Judicial Court's ruling that found the state's ban on gay marriage unconstitutional.

Of the state residents surveyed for a Boston Globe/WBZ-TV poll, 50% said they agreed with the ruling, while 38% opposed it.

A separate Boston Sunday Herald poll found 49% said they supported legalizing gay marriage, while 38% opposed it.

Both polls, conducted after Tuesday's ruling, had margins of sampling error of plus or minus 5 percentage points.
