Poll: NC opposing constitutional ban on gay unions
Originally printed 11/10/2011 (Issue 1945 - Between The Lines News)
RALEIGH, N.C. (AP)-A statewide poll finds virtually no change in North Carolina residents' opinions seven months ahead of an election that would amend the constitution to ban same-sex unions.
An Elon University poll released Monday presents public opinion in North Carolina as consistent since February. Fifty-seven percent oppose changing the state constitution to permanently bar same-sex couples from marriage rights, a figure almost identical to Elon poll results in September and February.
The General Assembly voted in September to hold a referendum on the constitutional amendment next May.
The Elon Poll does not measure eligible or likely voters, but takes a snapshot of general public opinion. The survey of 529 North Carolina adults conducted last week has a sampling error margin of 4 percentage points.
