Widespread support for same sex marriage
There is widespread support for the introduction of Same Sex Marriage into the Irish constitution among those likely to vote, with 76% of likely voters currently claiming they would support the introduction in any referendum, while 18% oppose its introduction and 6% are undecided. Once undecided voters are excluded this suggests that at the present time, some way before the referendum itself and prior to any meaningful debate, 81% would support the introduction of same sex marriage while 19% would oppose it.
Also voting intentions in the next general election were covered in this poll with Fine Gael the main losers, with an apparent voter backlash against the party possibly down to a combination of the Property tax, Water shortages and even possibly the Single Sex marriage referendum.
