Poll: 54 Percent of Maryland Voters Support Marriage Equality

Post submitted by Eric Cameron, HRC Digital Media Specialist

With marriage equality on the ballot this November, a new poll shows that 54 percent of Maryland voters favor the state’s marriage equality law, with 40 percent opposing.

Frank Bruni of The New York Times reports that the findings from Hart Research Associates are part of continuing national shift in favor of marriage equality. The new poll also reflects significant gains in support from African-American voters.

The report’s full findings will be released later today. You can find state-specific marriage recognition maps and links to other national polling in HRC’s all-new Marriage Center.

HRC has set up a special fund to direct 100 percent of your contribution today to defend the marriage equality law in Maryland. HRC is a founding member and leader of Marylanders for Marriage Equality, the coalition campaign working to defend marriage in the Free State, and your contribution will support the coalition's efforts and count toward your HRC membership.
