Another poll on gay marriage found high levels of opposition.
Seventeen percent opposed the amendment and 10 percent were undecided.
"We commissioned this survey, first of all, because we wanted to determine the level of support for the Marriage Protection Amendment among registered voters in North Carolina," said council president Bill Brooks in a statement.
The results are in line with previous polls, which have found high levels of support when the question asks about adding a definition of marriage to the constitution, but more of a split when the wording notes this would outlaw same-sex marriage.
The live survey of 5,009 registered voters was conducted on Feb. 26, 2009, by Advantage Inc. of Arlington, Va. The margin of error was not released.
After the jump, the questions.
How likely would you be to vote for a ballot initiative that would place in our State Constitution the definition of marriage as "only the union of one man and one woman?"
2. Are you more or less likely to vote for a legislative candidate who supports a Constitutional Marriage Amendment defining marriage as "only the union of one man and one woman?"
3. Do you think the State of North Carolina should direct public schools to teach homosexuality as an acceptable and normal behavior?
