Poll: WV4Marriage.com Impacts Support for Marriage

leave a comment »

PollingSupport for marriage in West Virginia (and nationwide) appears to be increasing as a substantial rate.  This, in spite of a seemingly tireless press by special interest groups and politicians beset on preventing West Virginians from voting on which definition of marriage that will consent to be governed.

A year ago, the Family Policy Council of West Virginia commissioned a poll to determine the level of support for marriage as one man and one woman.  According to those results, 73% of West Virginians at the time supported such a definition.  After the launch of www.wv4marriage.com, we conducted another poll which indicated support for traditional marriage had increased by 13%.

Last week, some internal polling revealed that support for marriage nationwide has increased – including in West Virginia.  According to a survey of 50,000 homes nationwide now exceeds 67%.  In West Virginia, support for marriage as one man and one woman now tops 92%.

The debate over whether or not there is a nationwide effort to redefine marriage is over.  There is no legitimate reason not to let the people of West Virginia vote on this important issue.  Every legislator should defend the people’s right to vote on the definition of marriage.
