Poll: 50 Percent Support Same-Sex Marriage In Md.

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — A poll by The Washington Post has found that half of Maryland residents now support legalizing same-sex marriage.

The poll released Monday found that 50 percent of residents favor same-sex marriage and 44 percent are opposed.

The newspaper reports that’s the highest recorded level of support in Maryland in a Post poll.

The poll found a divide among Maryland Democrats based on race. For whites, 71 percent were found to support same-sex marriage, while 24 percent oppose it. Among blacks, 41 percent support it, while 53 percent oppose it.

The poll was conducted by telephone Jan. 23-26 among a random sample of 1,064 Maryland adults. The results have a margin of error of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.

    There is no way half of this entire state supports this! This is an ultra-liberal lie that the money and ultra-liberal news orgainzations like WJZ want you to believe. There is a huge silent majority that has not spoken their true feelings against gay marriage. If these numbers were truly represented, then the so-called “support” for gay marriage would be only around 25%
