Elon poll: Majority of N.C. opposes gay marriage ban

November 7, 2011

RALEIGH — A statewide poll finds virtually no change in North Carolina residents' opinions seven months ahead of an election that would amend the constitution to ban same-sex unions.

An Elon University poll released Monday presents public opinion in North Carolina as consistent since February. Fifty-seven percent oppose changing the state constitution to permanently bar same-sex couples from marriage rights, a figure almost identical to Elon poll results in September and February.

The General Assembly voted in September to hold a referendum on the constitutional amendment next May.

The Elon Poll does not measure eligible or likely voters, but takes a snapshot of general public opinion. The survey of 529 North Carolina adults conducted last week has a sampling error margin of 4 percentage points.
