Recent Poll: November Amendment 2 Vote Too Close to Call

by HRC Staff •

This November, Florida voters will vote on Amendment 2, which seeks to amend the state constitution to define marriage as between a man and a woman only and prohibit recognition of any other legal union that is the "substantial equivalent" of marriage. Florida law already prohibits recognition of marriages by gay or lesbian couples-the proposed amendment would write that discriminatory ban into the constitution and its broad wording would also ban civil unions and likely domestic partnerships as well.

One positive factor: supporters of the amendment need to garner 60% of the vote this November in order to pass Amendment 2. Recent polling suggests that the vote will be very close-57% were found to support Amendment 2, with 36% opposed.

Two campaigns, SayNo2 and Fairness for All Families have formed to oppose the discriminatory amendment.
