Independents, urban dwellers fuel jump in support for same-sex marriage in TX

A poll released in October showed that 69 percent of Texas voters support some form of relationship recognition for same-sex couples.

A three-year analysis of University of Texas/Texas Tribune polls shows that support for same-sex unions has risen most significantly among Independents and urban dwellers.

A poll released in October found a record 69 percent of Texas voters favor some sort of relationship recognition for same-sex couples, either civil unions or same-sex marriage, which is a record high. Of those polled, 75 percent of Democrats favored recognition, compared to 64 percent of Independents and Republicans, though only 15 percent of Republicans support marriage equality.
