A recent Quinnipiac University poll found that 54% of Catholics now support same-sex marriage, while 38% opposed it. This figures show a 5% rise in support for same-sex marriage since last December among Catholics. It is interesting to note that American voter support for same-sex marriage also inched up to 47% in favor and 43% against, which is lower than the 54% of Catholics in favor of equal marriage and the 38% against. The poll also showed a major reversal since July 2008, when the majority of American voters did not support same-sex marriage and a poll found then that 55% opposed it while only 36 percent supported it.
This compares to a 48 – 46 percent statistical tie among all voters on same-sex marriage December 5 and reverses the 55 – 36 percent opposition in a July, 2008, survey by the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University.
