@thinkprogress News Flash: Over 60% of Iowans Support Marriage Equality


A new poll from Drake University shows that 61.3 percent of Iowans support same-sex marriage and 62.5 percent oppose a constitutional amendment banning it. In addition, a plurality believe that marriage equality has been good for the people of Iowa (48.5 percent) and has improved how favorably Iowa is viewed from a national perspective (46.6 percent). There were, however, sharp divides on the issue along party lines. Iowa has had marriage equality since the unanimous 2009 Iowa Supreme Court ruling in Varnum v. Brien.
