Opposition On The Decline

Indiana Down With Gay Nups

Indiana’s denizens feeling gay marriage these days:

Support among Hoosiers for a state constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage appears to be on the decline, according to an Indianapolis Star-WTHR (Channel 13) poll.

The poll, based on the responses of 600 people statewide, found that 49 percent of Hoosiers supported the amendment. That number is down from 56 percent in a March 2005 survey by The Star.

Of the respondents, 44 percent said they opposed a constitutional ban, up from 40 percent in 2005.

Indiana’s Senate definitely doesn’t approve of same-sex nuptials: they passed a ban earlier this year. The House of Representatives, however, squashed that nasty piece of legislation. Voters and politicians expect it to rear its ugly head again in 2008.

Something to look forward to, huh?
