Poll: 60 Percent of Latinos Support Marriage Equality


new poll from NBC Latino/IBOPE Zogby finds that 60 percent of Latinos support marriage equality, including 48 percent who “strongly” agree that same-sex couples should have the right to marry. Only 38 percent disagreed. Disturbingly, a full 10 percent said that being gay, over being a drug addict or being sent to prison, would be the biggest disappointment when it comes to their children. Anti-gay groups like the National Organization for Marriage have tried to drive a wedge between Latinos and the LGBT community by claiming that “Hispanic communities have always opposed same-sex marriage” — clearly they do not.
