A SurveyUSA poll, sponsored by KWCH, Channel 12, found 42 percent of Kansans agreeing with President Obama’s endorsement of same-sex marriage – perhaps surprising for a state that saw a constitutional amendment to ban it pass with 70 percent of the vote in 2005. In the survey, 55 percent said they disagreed with Obama, and 37 percent said a candidate’s view on the issue would be very important in the coming election. The agreement with Obama was highest among liberals and Democrats, followed by 18- to 34-year-olds (53 percent), northeast Kansans (49 percent), and women and moderates (47 percent).
