A Valentine's Day present for ME supporters in New Hampshire

A WMUR-TV Granite State Poll showed 62 percent of survey respondents oppose repeal of the 2009 law that legalized same-sex marriage in New Hampshire

DURHAM, N.H. -- A new poll shows strong opposition to a bill that would repeal the law allowing same-sex marriage in New Hampshire.

The Republican takeover of the Legislature in November raised questions about whether lawmakers would tackle social issues such as gay marriage and abortion.

But House leaders have asked that the fight to repeal gay marriage be postponed until next year, and the latest WMUR Granite State Poll shows only 29 percent of New Hampshire adults support repealing the law, compared to 62 who want to leave it in place.

The telephone poll of 520 adults was conducted Jan. 27 through Feb. 6 by the University of New Hampshire Survey Center and had a sampling margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points.
