Iowa For Marriage Equality

Feb 28th, 2012

In Iowa, where the opponents of marriage equality managed to recall three of the state's Supreme Court justices for affirming the right of gays and lesbians to marry in 2010, comes this news:

"A majority of Iowans oppose passage of a state constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage, a new Des Moines Register Iowa Poll shows.

The poll found that 38 percent favor a legislative initiative to pass a constitutional amendment, while 56 percent are against. Six percent aren’t sure."

The numbers show a slight rise in support from a similar poll conducted not long after the successful conservative attack on the judiciary. Again, the importance of center-left voter turnout is demonstrated.
