Survey in Arkansas Finds Nearly 65% Support for Limiting Marriage to Heterosexuals

OCTOBER 15, 2004 - Posted at 7:37 a.m. CDT

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - A proposed constitutional amendment to ban gay marriages in Arkansas is supported by nearly 65 percent of those surveyed in a recent poll.

The proposal will be on the November 2 general election ballot.

A poll by Zogby International, carried out for the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, surveyed 503 likely Arkansas voters on Sunday and Monday.  The survey found that 64.8 percent of those surveyed favored the amendment and 32.6 percent were opposed.  The margin of error for the poll was 4.5 percentage points, meaning support for the proposed amendment could be as low as 60.3 percent, or as high as 69.3 percent.
