Poll: New Yorkers approve of gay marriage law

A poll released by Quinnipiac University on Tuesday shows that New York voters support a law passed on Friday that legalized same-sex marriage in that state. Fifty-four percent of voters said they approve of the law allowing same-sex couples to marry, while 40 percent said they oppose it.

The new law is even more popular among young people. The poll found that voters under 35 support it 70 percent to 26 percent, while voters over age 65 oppose the new law by a margin of 57 percent to 37 percent.

The poll was conducted in the days immediately before and after the vote in the New York Senate, and Quinnipiac said responses did not differ when the bill passed Friday night.

The poll also found Catholics split on the issue, with 48 percent both opposed and against it. Sixty-seven percent of Jewish voters supported the law, and 78 percent of non-believers also supported it. Only a majority of Protestants opposed legalizing same-sex marriage, by a margin of 54 percent to 40 percent.

“Throughout the down-to-the-wire drama and the narrow margin in the State Senate, voter support for same-sex marriage has been consistent,” Maurice Carroll, director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute, said in a statement.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed the bill into law late Friday night, and in 30 days, same-sex marriage will be legal in New York.
