Maryland Marriage Poll

Timothy Kincaid

January 17th, 2008

The Maryland legislature may find itself entering into the fray in the great marriage debate. And with that in mind, the Baltimore Sun thought they’d find out what the residents of the state think.

  • 19% favor gay marriage
  • 39% favor civil unions instead of marriage
  • 31% oppose both
  • 11% really couldn’t give a darn

Now I predict the anti-gays will claim “81% support a ban on gay marriage”, but interestingly, only about 15% of those polled were in favor of a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage.

And I predict that if the ammendments gets to the ballot it will pass – because those who oppose gay marriage are far more likely to bother voting than those who dont.

Now you see why democracy sucks. Republics are superior.
