American Public Remains Opposed To Same-Sex Marriages As They Begin In Massachusetts

As same-sex marriage begins today in Massachusetts, Americans remain opposed to the concept but still dubious about prohibiting it by a constitutional amendment, the University of Pennsylvania’s National Annenberg Election Survey shows.

Interviewing of 3,775 adults from May 3 through 16 showed that 61 percent of the public said they opposed a law that would permit same-sex marriages in their state, while 30 percent said they favored it.
