Floridians Favor Some Sort of Legal Recognition for Gay Couples, Despite Banning Marriage in the Constitution
Ironically, according to a new Quinnipiac poll, Floridians favor some sort of substantial legal recognition of gay relationships by 62 percent; 27 percent are for full gay marriage, while 35 percent favor civil unions. Only 31 percent think their should be no legal recognition. Way to go, democracy.
Fifty-five percent of Floridians disapprove of a state law that bans gay couples from adopting.
The poll also found that 72 percent disapprove of cuts to the Bright Futures scholarship program. Seventy-one percent approve a one-dollar cigarette tax hike. Unsurprisingly, smokers were the only demographic that disapproved of the hike.
