New Poll: 62 Percent Oppose Repeal of New Hampshire’s Marriage Law

Post submitted by Kevin Nix, Former HRC Campaign Media Director

You don’t see these kind of numbers every day. The well-respected and nonpartisan University of New Hampshire Survey Center issued a new poll yesterday. Sixty-two percent of Granite Staters say ‘no’ to repealing the state’s 2009 marriage equality law – and the level of intensity on our side is off the charts. As Craig Stowell, the former Marine and Republican co-chair of Standing Up for New Hampshire Families coalition said,  “Granite Staters are sending a clear and consistent message to the statehouse: leave the state’s popular marriage law alone.”

More than 60% of Independents oppose repeal – and Independents are a key voting block in the Granite State. The people have spoken.

More Stowell:  “Anti-gay interests are putting a lot of time and energy into repealing the marriage law, but our legislative leaders would be wise to recognize the intensity of Granite State support for people’s freedom. If these numbers don’t help persuade legislators to keep their eye on bread and butter issues and not veer off into a fringe effort to break up families, I don’t know what will.”
