Elon University poll finds majority oppose Amendment One

An Elon University poll released today finds a majority of North Carolinians oppose Amendment One, which would ban legal recognition of same-sex couples:

You could make the case — at this point, I would — that the hottest ticket on the May 8 ballot in North Carolina isn’t the GOP presidential primary or the gubernatorial primaries. Rather, it is a constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage and civil unions.

The Elon University Poll results are clear that most residents — 54% — oppose the amendment. Support for full marriage rights for same sex couples or civil unions has gotten stronger in each of the four Elon polls over the past year
