Poll Shows GOP Voters Want Politicians to Support Natural Marriage

From our Family Policy Council affiliates at Family Research Council:

Family Research Council (FRC) and American Values released the results of a commissioned national survey conducted by Wilson Research Strategies showing that 82 percent of Republican and Republican-leaning independents believe marriage “should be defined only as a union between one man and one woman.” 74 percent strongly agreed with this statement.

The same survey found that the voters want their elected leaders to promote this view in public policy: 75 percent of Republican and Republican-leaning independent voters disagree that “politicians should support the redefinition of marriage to include same-sex couples.” 67 percent strongly disagreed with this statement. 

“It’s very encouraging to see this targeted poll showing that Republican voters in the US have not lost their way or believed the oft-repeated lies about marriage.” states Julaine Appling, WFA president, “Elected officials who are running for office this year in Wisconsin and elsewhere should pay close attention. They’re concerned about their base.  Well, their base says abandoning the party’s long-held position on marriage is not smart.”
