Poll: 65 percent of British agree gays should have equal right to marry
The latest in a line of polls gauging public opinion on the proposed right of gay couples to marry in Britain has found two thirds of the public support it.
Over the weekend, the Populus poll asked a thousand voters in Scotland, England and Wales what they thought of such a move, proposals for which have been formally unveiled as part of a public consultation by the government for England and Wales today.
The majority of those asked in the phone poll agreed with the statement: “Gay couples should have an equal right to get married, not just to have civil partnerships.”
