A majority of Kentucky voters continue to oppose same-sex marriage, but public opinion appears to be shifting on the issue.
A new Herald-Leader/WKYT Bluegrass Poll found that 55 percent of registered voters oppose same-sex marriage, compared to 35 percent who support allowing gays and lesbians to marry in Kentucky. Ten percent weren't sure.
Nearly a decade ago, 75 percent of voters approved a constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage in the state. Last spring, a poll by the liberal-leaning Public Policy Polling found that 65 percent of Kentuckians thought gay marriage should be illegal.
