Rhode Island: 60% support marriage equality

A new poll conducted by the Taubman Center for Public Policy at Brown
University, found that 60.4 percent of respondents favored allowing
same-sex couples to legally wed
, a number that is nearly identical to
the findings of a May 2009 poll by Brown.

The poll found 26.1 percent of
respondents were opposed to same-sex marriage.

The poll surveyed 593 Rhode Island voters from Feb. 21 to 23, and has a 4 point margin of error.
