69% of Alaskans Believe Same-Sex Marriage Should Be Legal (Nice)

Welcome to Alaska

Alaska is a reliably conservative state by most measures, but that doesn’t appear to be the case these days when it comes to the legalization of same-sex marriage.

According to an Alaska Dispatch News poll from last month, an overwhelming majority of people believe in equal marriage rights for gay couples, which is a surprise given the existing idea that Alaska is a haven for social conservatives. Granted, only 50 percent of Republicans in the poll believe same-sex marriage should be legal, but that still outnumbers the 41 percent who said it should be illegal.

And what was the overall percentage of Alaskans who believe same-sex marriage should be legal?

69 percent.

Nice.
