Warringah voters set to back marriage equality: poll
In the first poll since the Government announced a postal survey on marriage equality, residents in Tony Abbott’s electorate of Warringah were asked if they supported same sex marriage.
689 residents across the federal electorate of Warringah were asked if same sex couples should be able to get married; 69.7% of voters in Warringah agree same sex couples should be able to get married, 25.7% did not and 4.6% were undecided.
“There is a massive mood for change on marriage equality around Australia, and this poll is further evidence of that,” Executive Director of The Australia Institute, Ben Oquist said.
“Warringah voters look set to overwhelmingly back marriage equality and they do not appear to be buying into the line that the survey has anything to do with free speech or political correctness.
“Time and again polls show the majority of Australians, the majority of Liberal voters back same sex marriage. This non-binding postal poll is likely to tell the Government what everybody already knows,” said Oquist.
