49% feel marriage between same-sex couples should be recognized, while 45% disagree. 

“So it doesn’t matter what the Supreme Court decides. One thing is certain from this study – the battle will continue.”

Sacramento State pollster Amy Liu surveyed 1,353 residents of the four-county Sacramento area between February and March.

She says the poll found that people who regularly attend church services are more likely to oppose same-sex marriage compared to those who don’t. 

“Another key factor is the political party. Democrats are much more likely to be for gay marriage and Republicans, on the other hand, are strongly against.” 

Liu says Independents and third-party voters are more likely to be undecided.
