World-Herald Poll: Majority now back recognition of gay unions

Source: Omaha World Herald

By Erin Grace

Most Nebraskans now favor legal recognition of same-sex unions. And a growing share of Omahans support gay marriage instead of civil unions.

The survey of 800 registered voters reflects a big swing from 12 years ago, when seven in 10 Nebraska voters passed a ballot initiative banning gay marriage.

Statewide support for gay marriage in the poll is nuanced, with a split between those favoring same-sex marriage (32 percent) and those OK with civil unions but not marriage (22 percent).

Added together, they reflect a majority of Nebraskans. And they show a definite shift from a World-Herald survey three years ago among supporters of same-sex unions weighing gay marriage versus civil unions.
