New poll shows most Germans ready to support marriage equality

According to a new poll, the majority of Germans are ready for same-sex marriage to be the law of the land. The survey by YouGov published on Thursday shows over two-thirds of Germans want gay marriage to be legalized, reports The Local de.

Chancellor Angela Merkel’s conservative Union said they were for legalization and with support for marriage equality at over 60 percent  it suggests that the chancellor’s opposition to gay marriage is now out of step with her own voter base.

Slightly less than a quarter (24 percent) of respondents remained opposed to same-sex couples being given legal equality. Germany is currently one of the few countries in Western Europe without marriage rights for same-sex couples.
