Support for marriage equality in Rhode Island is at an all-time high, according to a poll released yesterday by Public Policy Polling.

The results show a strong 57 percent of Rhode Islanders support same-sex couples' right to marry. Only 36 percent opposed marriage equality. Support has increased from just one year ago, when a PPP survey found 50 percent supported marriage equality, while 41 percent opposed.

Rhode Island’s Senate is expected to vote on marriage equality legislation in the spring, after its historic passage in the House last month.

Momentum toward marriage equality nationwide continues to build. HRC is on the ground with Rhode Islanders United for Marriage to working to ensure loving, committed couples are able to marry.
