Most Californians Don't Want to Revisit Same-Sex "Marriage": Poll

SACRAMENTO, California, November 9, 2009 ( - A poll conducted by the Los Angeles Times and the University of Southern California found that most Californians do not want to challenge the state’s ban on same-sex “marriage” with another ballot initiative.

The poll, released today, shows almost 60% of respondents against any future attempts by homosexual lobbyists to challenge by popular vote the passage of Proposition 8 last November. Proposition 8 amended the state constitution to explicitly recognize only marriage between a man and a woman.

A bare majority of 51% of California voters in the survey said they supported same-sex “marriage,” with 43% opposed. Many polls leading up to the Proposition 8 vote similarly showed an edge to same-sex “marriage,” which nonetheless met with defeat - a frequent trend among same-sex “marriage” initiatives.

The survey interviewed 1,500 registered voters from Oct. 27 through Nov. 3, and had a margin of error of ±2.6 percentage points.
