POLL: 78% OF VOTERS SAY REDEFINING MARRIAGE ISN’T A PRIORITY
Two polls for two national newspapers were published at the weekend. An ICM poll for the Sunday Telegraph showed that 78% of people don’t think the Government should prioritise redefining marriage before the next general election in 2015.
Although the plan to redefine marriage has had the support of Conservative Prime Minister, David Cameron, Conservative voters don’t agree. Only 35% of them support the principle of redefining marriage.
A separate YouGov poll for the Sunday Times shows that 63% of people believe David Cameron is backing plans to redefine marriage “for political reasons”, rather than because he believes in it.
Last week, a ComRes poll showed that 70% of people don’t want marriage to be redefined. The Coalition for Marriage’s petition, which calls on the Government to keep the current definition of marriage, is approaching 150,000 signatures.
