A large majority of Wisconsin
Republicans say that marriage equality coming to the state has either
had no impact or a positive impact on their lives.
According to a Public Policy Polling
(PPP) survey of 1,071 Wisconsin voters conducted from March 6-8, 82
percent said that marriage equality – which came to the state in October – has either had no impact or a positive impact on their
lives. Only 18 percent of respondents said that their lives were
negatively impacted by gay couples marrying.
Twenty-four percent of Democrats said
that its legalization had a positive impact on their lives, compared
to 4 percent among Republicans.
Seventy-four percent of Republicans
said that marriage equality has either had no impact (70%) or a
positive impact (4%) on their lives.
“Voters are largely unfazed by the
legalization of gay marriage in the state last year,” PPP
said in releasing its results. “70% say it has had no impact
on their lives, including 58% of very conservative voters.”
