New Poll: 54% of Delaware Voters Support Marriage Equality


WILMINGTON - Today, Equality Delaware released a statewide poll showing a majority – 54% - of voters in the state support the General Assembly passing a marriage equality bill. Just 37% oppose it.

“This poll is the latest indication that a decisive majority of voters in Delaware believe in treating all loving couples and their families equally under the law,” said Mark Purpura, President of Equality Delaware Foundation, which commissioned the poll.

“This poll shows that Delawareans, like a majority of Americans, believe in marriage equality,” said Lisa Goodman, President of Equality Delaware, Inc. “As we have seen from the recent passage of marriage bills through the house in Rhode Island and the senate in Illinois, other states are moving to marriage. A majority of Delawareans now look forward to Delaware also becoming a state where every loving couple has the unique protections and recognition that only marriage can provide.”

Same-sex couples can marry in nine states and the District of Columbia.

The poll of 600 likely 2014 voters was conducted by the Global Strategy Group on February 12-14, 2013. A pollster memo can be found here.
