Poll: Hoosiers split on marriage equality
Indiana residents are evenly split on legalizing marriage equality, although a majority of them do not want to amend the state constitution to ban it, according to a new poll.
The survey taken for the Bowen Center for Public Affairs at Ball State University and WISH-TV found that 45 percent of those surveyed supported allowing gay people to wed, while 45 percent opposed the idea. Ten percent had no opinion.
A majority -- 54 percent -- said they opposed a constitutional ban on gay marriage, an idea that has been repeatedly pushed by Republican legislators. Only 38 percent favored an amendment.
