A new poll by Quinnipiac shows support for marriage equality is still on the rise in Colorado.
On the issue of same-sex marriage, 61 percent of voters support allowing same-sex couples to marry in the state and 33 percent are opposed.
Democrats support same-sex marriage in the state 85 to 12 percent, while Republicans are opposed 58 to 34 percent.
The Quinnipiac poll was conducted April 15 to 21 and surveyed 1,298 registered Colorado voters. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 2.7 percentage points.
The bolding above is mine.
It’s important to note that the survey size – 1,298 – is substantial for a statewide poll. These numbers exceed the national average which puts current support at 55-58% depending on the poll.
Currently, there are two lawsuits in Colorado pushing for marriage equality.
