Australia: Poll Shows Coalition Isolated From Majority (69%) On Marriage Equality, 53% Support Among Coalition Voters

Australia_DayIn Australia, marriage equality advocates have welcomed a new Fairfax/Ipsos marriage equality poll showing 69% support nationally, including 53% support among Coalition voters.

Australian Marriage Equality national director, Rodney Croome, said,

“This poll shows the Coalition’s decision to block a free vote has isolated it from the majority of Australians who value fairness, love, and equality”

“With a majority of Coalition supporters backing reform, the poll shows the Coalition won’t lose votes if it allows love to win.”

“This poll was conducted after the government tried to quash marriage equality, proving Australians saw through the trickery and are undeterred in their support for reform.”

“This is a wake up call for the government ahead of the expected Cabinet debate on marriage equality. It’s time for the Coalition to show more respect for the majority of Australians.”

“The result also bolsters our confidence that if a fairly-framed plebiscite is held at the election, marriage equality will prevail.”

The poll showed majority support for marriage equality in every major demographic
