Tar Heel voters still opposed to same-sex marriages

North Carolina voters still strongly oppose same-sex marriages, according to a new poll.

Fifty-four percent of Tar Heel voters oppose gay marriage, with only 38 percent supporting it, and 9 percent not sure, according to a new survey by Public Policy Polling, a Democratic leaning firm based in Raleigh.

Voters last May approved a constitutional amendment defining marriage as being between a man and a woman by a 61-39 percent margin.

When asked in the poll to describe their opinion on gay marriage, 33 percent said gay couples should be allowed to marry, 30 percent thought gay couples should be allowed to form civil unions and 37 percent thought there should be no legal recognition a gay couple's relationship.

The survey of 600 North Carolina voters was conducted Feb. 7-10 and had a margin of error of 4 percent.
