A majority of voters in Connecticut support the state's gay marriage law.

According to a Public Policy Polling survey of 771 Connecticut voters conducted by telephone from July 26th to 29th, 55 percent of respondents support marriage equality, while 33 percent disapprove of such unions. Twelve percent say there should be no legal recognition of a gay couple's relationship.

A large majority (68%) of young voters said they support gay nuptials, while 18 percent remain opposed.

A near universal majority (88%) support either marriage (51%) or civil unions (37%) for gay and lesbian couples.

Seventy percent of respondents said that marriage equality's legalization has not had any impact on their lives. Sixteen percent said it's had a positive effect. Only 14 percent of respondents said it had a negative effect on their lives.

Connecticut began issuing marriage licenses to gay couples in 2008.
