A new poll suggests that a majority of Illinoisans support same-sex marriage.
Public Policy Polling (PPP) has released a poll that suggests that Illinois voters favor same-sex marriage 47/42, and that support increases among younger voters and voters of color.
Fifty-eight percent of voters under age 45 support marriage equality, compared with 37 percent who oppose it, the poll found. Black voters supported same-sex marriage 60/16, PPP said. Latinos supported Illinois marriage equality at 70/23. The majority of white voters did not support same-sex marriage in Illinois with 40 percent supporting and 51 percent opposing.
