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 they're opposed.

“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.
