Poll: Indiana Voters Against Banning Marriage Equality

From WishTV:

The Hoosier Survey shows that 45% support allowing gays and lesbians to legally marry.  An identical 45% are opposed to the idea with 10% undecided.

The other findings are also eye-catching.  Only 38% support the constitutional ban on gay marriage that will appear on the Indiana ballot in 2014 if the legislature approves it in 2013. Fifty four percent oppose it.  "There are more Republicans who would like to see it in the constitution," says Ball State political scientist Joe Losco, "but Democrats and independents are strongly against it."

And when it comes to civil unions 55% are in support with 37% opposed.  "But we have been saying for a long time the public's way ahead of the legislature on this," says Rick Sutton of Indiana Equality.
