Marriage Equality USA

Stay Informed


  • 20 October 2014, results of a poll conducted Oct. 14-16 by Dan Jones and Associates showed 61% of Utahns opposed same-sex marriage, which became legal in October due to the U.S. Supreme Court’s refusal to hear appeals from several states whose same-sex marriage bans were struck down in lower courts, including Utah (see Kitchen under LAWSUITS-RESOLVED above).That is down slightly from the 63% who said they opposed same-sex marriage in a similar poll in August 2014. Meanwhile, 37% of 405 respondents queried after marriage equality was legalized Oct. 6 said they were supportive, up from 29% in August. News Source
