A majority of likely Kentucky voters
oppose the Supreme Court's ruling striking down gay marriage bans in
all 50 states.
According to a WKYT Herald-Leader
Bluegrass Poll of 1,000 people conducted by SurveyUSA, 38 percent of
respondents support the high court's decision, while 53 percent say
“Fifty-three percent are opposed to
what the Supreme Court did,” said
Sam Youngman, a political writer at Herald-Leader.
“Obviously, these numbers don't match what we are seeing
nationally. But what they do represent I think is more and more
change toward a broader acceptance of gay marriage here in Kentucky.”
The poll found opposition to marriage
equality was lower than in May, when a Bluegrass Poll found 57
percent of Kentuckians opposed to such unions.
Kentucky was among the four states
directly involved in the case brought before the Supreme Court.
