In yet another poll, marriage equality advocates have found that public support for same-sex marriage has risen to 73%.
Nearly three quarters of those asked said they would agree with the statement: “Same sex marriage should be allowed in the Constitution”.
The results were presented to Ireland’s Oireachtas in a report prepared for the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform on the last Constitutional referendum. Kieran Rose, Chair of Ireland’s Gay and Lesbian Equality Network said: “The poll confirms the openness of Irish people and their support for further critically important progress to achieving equality for lesbian and gay people. GLEN’s goal, and that of lesbian and gay people, is access to civil marriage which is the only option that will achieve equality of status with opposite-sex couples and which would underpin a wider equality for lesbian and gay people.” In.Ireland.
This is great news, and bigs news; the last marriage equality poll in 2008 put support for the idea at 56%.
Way to step up.
