Fifty-nine percent of New Hampshire residents support the state’s law allowing same-sex marriage, according to results of a WMUR/UNH Survey Center Granite State Poll released Feb. 7.
“We've now had a full year's worth of polls on the question of repealing our marriage equality law and the result is always the same—voters do not want the legislature messing with this law,” said Standing Up for NH Families co-chair Craig Stowell. “This is not a close call. By a consistent margin of nearly two-to-one, voters are telling legislators to leave this popular law alone and get back to work on the economic challenges of our day.”
The latest poll demonstrated that support for marriage equality has remained strong over the past year, despite attempts from the National Organization for Marriage (NOM) to overturn the state’s law allowing same-sex marriage.
“We can debate this issue forever," said Stowell, "but if legislators really do what they say—which is to listen to their constituents—they'll stop this effort to turn back the clock and allow all New Hampshire families to be treated equally under the law. It's time to listen to the people of New Hampshire.”
