|Description||(Hartford-WTNH, Apr. 7, 2004 5:30 PM) _ A new UConn poll shows Connecticut residents oppose the idea of defining marriage as only between a man and a woman. |
The same poll shows overwhelming support for civil unions.
Some say this new poll shows the state moving closer toward accepting gay marriage.
Scenes like this will soon be seen just over the border in Massachusetts. Despite the effort to stop it, the Bay state Supreme Court says same sex marriage should begin on May 17th.
A new UConn poll seems to indicate the Nutmeg State is becoming more tolerant of the idea.
74 percent say the state should allow civil unions.
While people here seem to be evenly split on whether to allow same sex marriage a majority 53 percent to 39 percent oppose putting a law on the books saying marriage can only be between a man and a woman.
