Poll: Hawaii Voters Support Allowing Gay Couples To Marry

That’s according to Anzalone Liszt Grove Research, who conducted the survey for the Equality Hawaii Foundation. Highlights:

• Pollsters between Jan. 14-18 conducted 500 live telephone interviews with Hawaii residents and asked: “On the question of allowing gay and lesbian couples to marry legally, do you strongly favor, somewhat favor, strongly oppose or somewhat oppose allowing gay and lesbian couples to marry?”

• By an eighteen-point margin (55% favor – 37% oppose), voters support legalizing same-sex marriage, including 39% of voters who “strongly” favor it.

• The poll found that support is strongest among voters 35 years and younger (64% favor—32% oppose). The margin with voters over 50 was smaller, even though most still favor it (53% favor—38% oppose).

Equality Hawaii Foundation is a nonprofit dedicated to securing equality for Hawaii’s LGBT community.
