Pennsylvania: Support for marriage equality climbs to 57%

Support for marriage equality grows to 57% in Pennsylvania

According to a Quinnipiac University poll released Monday, Pennsylvania voters support a law that would allow same-sex marriage by 57-37 percent.

This represents a three percentage point increase from a Franklin & Marshall poll in October 2013.

Democrats favored the proposal 74-22 percent while Republicans opposed marriage equality 59-36 percent. The majority of independents, 58 percent, also supported the change.

Gender also played a role in determining attitudes towards legalizing gay marriage, with more Pennsylvania women supporting it than men — 60 and 53 percent respectively.
