Quinnipiac: Voters Back Same-Sex Marriage in Colorado by 2-1 Margin

Quinnipiac University released another new batch of poll results from Colorado today, outlining how voters in our state feel about legalizing marijuana and same-sex marriage.

According to Quinnipiac, voters strongly believe that legalizing marijuana has been good for Colorado (52-38 percent). While Quinnipiac focuses its press release today on the marijuana questions, we were much more interested to see the results of a query about same-sex marriage:

By a 61 – 33 percent margin, Colorado voters support allowing same-sex couples to get married in the state. [Pols emphasis] Support is 55 – 38 percent among men and 66 – 28 percent among women, 85 – 12 percent among Democrats and 63 – 30 percent among independent voters. Republicans are opposed 58 – 34 percent.

Support is 81 – 12 percent among voters 18 to 29 years old, 65 – 30 percent among voters 30 to 49 years old and 54 – 38 percent among voters 50 to 64 years old. Among voters over 65, 44 percent support same-sex marriage and 48 percent are opposed.

For all practical political purposes, the issue of same-sex marriage would appear to be pretty well settled as far as Colorado voters are concerned. Of particular note are the numbers from voters 18 to 29 years old, of whom a whopping 81 percent back same-sex marriage in our state.

    A Matter of Trust:  Cory Gardner's creditility is gone.

    Now we know why Mr. Gardner's views on gay marraiage, civil unions, and adoption by gay couples is "evolving." Of coures his "evolving views" beg the question as to whom he has been lying to over the past ten years – himself, the conservatives and the Republicans, or the rest of us? He simply doesn't have any credibility left.

      Cory will take a poll and then get back with us about what his strongly held bedrock convictions are. The guy is about as freaking phony as it gets.

      David T is right.  As a contrast people may not like what Ken Buck stands for but at least he's honest about who he is.

    It is stunning how at odds the GOP is with every demographic except senior citizens on this issue.

    This is why old, white voters are angry. They see the world is/moving/has moved beyond them.

      I don’t know why it should make them angry, Dave.
