“You wouldn’t realise it from listening to their leaders, but GetUp! members have voted ‘marriage equality’ as the least important issue out of 16 suggested campaigns,” FamilyVoice research officer Ros Phillips said today. “Only 2.1% of 30,818 GetUp Vision 2015 respondents supported it.”
The survey results, released in the last week or so, show that so-called “marriage equality” is a minor concern for younger voters. They may say they support it, but it is unlikely to be a vote changer.
“Gay marriage may not be a vote changer for this demographic, but it certainly is for both Labor and Liberal conservative voters – who want to keep the man-woman meaning marriage has always had,” Ros Phillips said.
“A recent Galaxy poll found that Coalition candidates could lose votes in the next federal election if they did not support man-woman marriage.
“This poll result came despite the huge media push for ‘marriage equality’. Federal MPs should take note!”
