Should Gay and Lesbian Couples Be Allowed to Get Married? [POLL]

The U.S. Supreme Court could announce this week their decision on gay marriage. Ahead of that decision, a UT/Texas Tribune poll claims that 44% of Texans support gay marriage according to the Texas Tribune.

Ahead of an impending U.S. Supreme Court decision on legal challenges to same-sex marriage bans, Texas voters — by a narrow margin — said gay and lesbian couples should be allowed to wed. But neither side of the question drew a majority of the support, and 14 percent said they don’t know which way the court should rule.

And on the related question — whether businesses should be allowed to refuse services to gays and lesbians for religious reasons — the poll found a similar divide. While 41 percent said businesses should be allowed to refuse services, 45 percent said they should be required to provide services.

“Attitudes probably are changing in Texas, but they’re changing slowly,” said Jim Henson, co-director of the poll and head of the Texas Politics Project at the University of Texas at Austin. “Opinion among Republicans is changing more slowly than it is in the rest of the country. There is a gender gap. There is an urban-suburban-rural difference. But age is the big one.”

What do you think? Do you think gay and lesbian couples should be allowed to get married?
