Poll Finds Support for Same-Sex Marriage Growing in Michigan

A Michigan State University poll has found an increase in support for gay marriage in Michigan, with 56 percent of adults questioned saying they support the same-sex unions.
Michigan State economics professor Charles Ballard directs the quarterly State of the State Survey, which questions Michiganians about a variety of subjects.
He says the increase in state support for same-sex marriage mirrors trends around the country.
The telephone poll of 1,015 Michigan adults was conducted June 12-Aug. 13, and the results have a margin of sampling error of 3 percentage points up or down.
Opposition to gay marriage stood at 39 percent in this year's poll. Two years ago, 51 percent said they opposed gay marriage, while 48 percent supported it.
