A large majority of Florida Republicans
say that marriage equality coming to the state has had either no
impact or a positive impact on their lives.
According to a Public Policy Polling
(PPP) survey of 923 Florida voters conducted from March 19-22, 81
percent said that marriage equality – which came to the state in
February – has either had no impact or a positive impact on their
lives. Only 20 percent of respondents said that their lives were
negatively impacted by gay couples marrying.
Twenty-two percent of Democrats said
that its legalization had a positive impact on their lives, compared
to 6 percent among Republicans.
Seventy-one percent of Republicans said
that marriage equality has either had no impact (65%) or a positive
impact (6%) on their lives.
“Gay marriage becoming legal in
Florida doesn't seem to be doing anyone much harm,” PPP
said in releasing its results.
