Marriage Equality Opposition in Kentucky Falling Toward Minority

Down five points in six months, barely clinging to 50 percent.

If Steve Cowardly Worm Beshear had not appealed a federal court decision striking down Kentucky's constitutional homophobia, marriage equality would have a majority.

John Cheves at the Herald:

Half of Kentucky voters oppose gays and lesbians being allowed to marry in Kentucky, but opposition has softened since February when a federal judge began striking down the state's same-sex marriage ban, according to a new Bluegrass Poll.

Fifty percent of respondents told pollsters this month they oppose same-sex marriage in Kentucky, with 37 percent favoring it and 12 percent not sure.

A Bluegrass Poll in February showed 55 percent opposed, 35 percent in favor and 10 percent not sure. 
 In 2004, nearly 75 percent of Kentucky voters amended the state constitution to define marriage as between one man and one woman and to prohibit recognition of valid same-sex marriages or civil unions from outside the state.
